Colors of Alushta - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

Alushta Alushta is one of the most modern cities of the Crimean peninsula, which managed to preserve the unique charm of the past. The city has a lot of interesting features, which must be noted by attentive travelers. Narrow streets, through which public transport hardly advances, do not go unnoticed. By the way, drive here is at a frenzied speed, even in very winding streets, and so a ride on a local taxi is a separate attraction. Those who go to Alushta by private car should be especially careful, local drivers "do not forgive" inexperienced tourists for their carelessness.
Alushta is a popular resort town with a lot of bars and restaurants. There are cookery institutions of different directions and price level, so everyone can choose a suitable place for rest. … Open
As for the character of the locals, they are quite sympathetic and hospitable. Before asking for help from the citizens, you should definitely say hello; during communication, do not forget about the elementary courtesy. Speaking about the culture of locals, it is worth mentioning the traditions of wine making, which totals more than one hundred years. Here, wine is treated very respectfully. Many locals themselves know how to cook it perfectly, and it turns out they are no worse than the factory ones. The tourists have a great value for home wine, but it should be chosen attentively and carefully.
You can fully experience the unique atmosphere of the national color during a walk through one of the city's markets. There is always a very lively atmosphere; voices are heard everywhere and mountains (literally) of fresh vegetables and fruits are visible. It is worth noting that the indigenous people prefer to go shopping in markets, although the choice of supermarkets in the resort is also very large. For many townspeople, going to the market has become a good tradition. The attitude towards the sea among the indigenous people, on the contrary, is rather restrained. Not all regularly rest on the beach; this way of organizing leisure for locals is more an exception than a usual event. The atmosphere of the city is constantly changing, but it manages to maintain its national attractiveness and unique charm. Copyright

Unique landmarks in Alushta and around

The Temple Of Donators

From the series “The Most Remote Monasteries and Temples in the World”
According to one version, the temple was founded by a wealthy ducal family, whose name remains unknown. Currently, there is the only pathway that originates in the valley and gradually rises to the entrance of the temple. Despite the fact that the shrine can be seen from afar, it’s not easy to find the path leading to it among the dense thickets of trees and a huge number of scarps. Beautiful frescoes and inaccessibility are not the only distinguishing features of the Temple of Donators. Since ancient times, locals believed in miraculous power of these places, which was confirmed by amazing stories of people who have visited the shrine. … Read further

From the series “The Most Wonderful Castles and Palaces”
