40 meters above sea level on Aurora Rock fearlessly and powerfully stands beautiful castle Swallow’s Nest. Endless blue sky is above the castle and bottomless sea is washing the impregnable rock. The castle, which was built in the spirit of chivalry, is decorated with turrets, spires, balconies, windows of Gothic forms and embattled walls. The castle looks especially inimitable from the sea: steep slopes of the central spur of Ai-Todor make it look royal and contemplative. That is one of the most romantic places on the Crimean peninsula. No wonder that loving couple call it the Castle of Love. A lot of legends have been arisen about this place but its real stories are not less breathtaking. In 2008 Swallow’s nest was awarded by “7 Wonders of Yalta”
