*'''Chekhov's house''' - Chekhov wrote a woman and her dog here and many of his other short stories. The house is small and there is a museum nearby dedicated to the writer, well worth a look if you enjoyed his work. Sadly, Chekhov's house is falling into disrepair, due to lack of funds. The good news is a fund has been started to raise a large sum of money to full restore the house in the future.

*'''Nikita Botanical Garden''', [http://www.nbg.crimea.ua/eng/basics.html]. Founded in 1812, one of the world's oldest operating scientific botanical gardens.  A lovely place to sit under the cherry blossoms and read Chekhov. Perched on a mountainside, this scenic garden boasts a stunning array of blooms in the spring and summer that will take your breath away.

*'''The beach''' does not contain sand, but instead consists of smooth pebbles more closely resembling river rock than anything else.  The beaches are similar to the pebble beaches of the French Riviera. Some beaches are better than others and for a small entrance fee, you can get access to a nice beach close to the Hotel Yalta. In the summer it can get very hot 32C+, If, you buy a drink from the cafe on some of the beaches,  you get a free umbrella to keep you in the shade!

*'''Yalta Zoo''', Well worth a trip out to see the animals. The Zoo is actually quite large and spread out with various types of animals from Lions to Bears to Monkeys. Some of the cages are a bit small, but the animals appear to be well looked after. There is a small aquarium opposite the Zoo. Very small and not recommended unless you are already a tropical fish enthusiast as they have a great variety of fully grown Cichlids which are rare to find kept so well. Otherwise it will probably not appeal due to it's small size.
