Cliffs and Adalary Twin Rocks in the Chekhov Bay

Cliffs and Adalary Twin Rocks in the Chekhov Bay

The relief of the rocky coast of a small bay of Anton Chekhov in Gurzuf against the background of the famous twin rocks “Adalary”. In this bay, the famous Russian writer bought a small Tatar house (saklya) in late 1899, which became the place of his creative solitude. In a letter to his brother at the beginning of 1900, Anton Pavlovich describes his purchase: “A small bay with a beautiful view, its own cliffs, swimming, fishing, etc., etc.”

The twin cliffs Adalary is a visiting card of not only Gurzuf resort, the Southern coast of Crimea, but also the whole Crimea. The rocks are located some distance from the sea in front of the Artek International Children’s Center (the former famous pioneer camp in the USSR). On one of the cliffs, there is a tricolor, the national flag of Russia.

My picture in the background of Gurzuf bay, the pier “Dacha Chekhova” (Chekhov’s Dacha) and rocks where it is located the summer house (dacha) of the famous Russian writer Anton Pavlovich Chekhov.
