Culture of Alushta. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

2014-09-22 (265\/365) Alushta is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of Crimea, located in a picturesque corner of the island, which at one time was visited by many famous personalities. Guests of Alushta have a worthy choice of sights and interesting cultural sites for studying. One of the most visited places is the "Museum of Marine Disasters", which is not in Alushta itself, but not far from it - in the village of "Malorechenskoye". It is a unique memorial complex dedicated to the memory of those who died at sea.

The museum itself is located in the "St. Nicholas church of Myra", which is also one of the important sights. The tower of the church performs the function of a lighthouse - the highest on the territory of Crimea. The design of the museum is interesting, and everything here is devoted to the marine theme. There is also a remarkable exhibition area, made in the form of the famous Flying Dutchman with a real captain's bridge and graceful sails.
In the very center of Alushta is located the "Church of All Saints" - the most remarkable architectural monument, built in the Gothic style. Its construction was conducted under the leadership of Count Vorontsov. Restoration of the temple was held in 1991, and now over its central entrance, towers a three-tiered bell tower, which looks very elegant in the background of "Mount Demiredzhi". "Alushta Museum of Local History" will be of interest to history lovers. The very building of the museum is also part of the history, since it was built in the beginning of the 19th century. The museum has many interesting archaeological finds, there are rare documents and photographs, but it is especially interesting to study objects of everyday life, their clothes and household items.

The oldest building on the territory of the modern resort is the "fortress of Aluston"; to this day only fragments of a large fortification structure have been preserved. There are ruins right in the center of the city and they produce a somewhat strange impression, as they are surrounded on all sides by modern buildings and household buildings. Outside the city, right next to the mountain peak of Shagan-Kaya is one of the most amazing city attractions - "Gazebo of winds". The arbor was built in 1956 and consists of several columns and a dome, whose height is about 4 meters; on the floor you can see the mosaic pattern of the Wind Rose.
