Once upon a time we've drove to hitch-hiking to Alupka in Vorontcov Palace. It's been a sun spring day. I load in my Zorki 10, (russian automatic camera from 70-s) Kodak Color 200 film, overdue in 2006.

When we arrive to Alupka, we met our friend Alexey from Moscow, and gone walking in Vorontcov Garden situated under walls of Vorontcov Palace.

Vorontcov Palace - is one of the oldest and largest royal palaces in all of Crimea. It's a great work of Edward Blore, Scottish architect.
The basis of the architectural design of the palace was the idea of ​​the alchemical marriage between East and West: half of the palace looks like a European castle, another part looks like a Orient palace.
Winston Churchill in book "Triumph and Tragedy: The Second World War" write about this place: "The setting of our abode was impressive ... Behind the villa, half Gothic and half Moorish in style, rose the mountains, covered in snow, culminating in the highest peak in the Crimea. Before us lay the dark expanse of the Black Sea, severe, but still agreeable and warm even at this time of the year. Carved white lions guarded the entrance to the house, and beyond the courtyard lay a fine park with sub-tropical plants and cypresses."
