Swallows Nest - Cape of Ai-Todor, Crimea, Ukraine

The Swallow's Nest - perched up on the Aurora cliff overlooking the Cape of Ai-Todor on the Black Sea coast between Yalta and Alupka, in Crimea, Ukraine. The first building on the Aurora Cliff (a wooden cottage romantically named the "Castle of Love") was constructed for a Russian general circa 1895 (the structure pictured here), with ownership passing to A. K. Tobin, a court doctor to the Russian Tsar. In 1911, Baron von Steingel (a Baltic German noble) who had made a fortune extracting oil in Baku, acquired the timber cottage (pictured) and within a year had it replaced with the current building called Schwalbennest ('Swallow's Nest') Date: circa 1908
