CASTLE SWALLOW NEST. YALTA. CRIMEA by NATALIA OTRAKOVSKAIA.
130 years ago a wounded general came for treatment to the Crimea. For heroism in the Crimean war, the empire awarded him a land plot by the sea. On the high rock of Ai-Todor Cape, the warrior built a small wooden house: he was looking for solitude, romanticism and calm, just blue sky and Black Sea. The veteran called his humble house The Castle of Love. But history does not say whether it was love for a woman or for the incredible beauty of Crimea. Source: http://castles.com.ua/swallowsne
