The Yusupov palace is one of the most inaccessible places in the Crimea. Built in 1880 in the village of Koreiz near Yalta, the palace for more than thirty years belonged to the richest and most influential Russian family, after which the palace got its name. Almost a century after the revolution of 1917 - this magnificent building was used as a state dacha for high-ranking officials. Joseph Stalin especially liked Yusupov palace and used to often come here on vacation.
The small building of the Yusupov palace was built in the neo-Romanesque style and the restrained style of the Italian Renaissance. The spacious balustrades offer a romantic view of the sea and a magnificent park with a lot of sculptures. Mythical heroes and lions peep here literally from under every bush. One can see the interiors of the Yusupov palace only with an excursion.
