These days, one of the famous ukrainian palace, has celebrating its 100th year after it was build, and it is Livadia Palace, the summer residency of the last russian king, and the place where was born the consept of the United Nations organization.
The palace was built in the italian style and located in the picturesque place on the southern coast of Crimea, Ukraine.
These places are famous as the Ukrainian Mediterranean, because of its unforgetable climate. The main sea resorts around are Yalta, Livadia, Gurzuf, Alupka.
If you ever been in Greece, then you can imagine this place, with the only one difference - the mountains are much greener, and the temperature a bit lower,during the summer, in the shade, no more than +40C maximum. With Greece this site links not only the climate but also a history. Greeks actually founded this place and named it Livadia.
The modern palace of Livadia was built in 1911 , for just a record term - one and a half year. It is shining its white marble colors under the sun, and from everywhere around near the palace have a fantastic view over the Black Sea. Which is, btw, not black at all, but has a clear warm water :)
Nowadays Livadia Palace is used as a museum, you can visit it and its courtyard, also it is still using for a hight level summits, such as every year "Yes" - Yalta European Strategy - summit.
