    taxi to caves around Alushta

    by js77 Written Dec 23, 2005

    If you want to go to any caves around Alushta and there is no organized trip on that day (if it is off-season) or you want to go there independently without tourist bus, you can go there by taxi. We paid 260 grivnas for round trip to Mramornaya cave. It was about one hour drive (the last part of the road was terrible, I think there is no worse road in Europe) and the driver waited for us while we were in the cave. Maybe we could get less price if we would bargain longer, but it seemed fair for us. Probably we are wrong. We were there in the end of 2004, so now prices could go up, I am not sure. Hitchhiking to Mramornaya cave from Alushta could be difficult, because of the small and deserted road which leads to it.

    Alushta - more cheaper then in Yalta

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Feb 22, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Alushta is located on the distance of 45 kilometers from Simferopol and 41 kilometers from Yalta. This resort is less known than Yalta and is considered cheaper. The ancient name of the city - Aluston. It is considered that there was a Byzantian fortress which was destroyed in the XV century by Turks and never restored.

    Alushta has a fine Seaside park and the quay - the longest on the Southern Coast of the Crimea . The dominant of the quay is the semicircular colonnade.

    I had a rest in Alushta in 1972 after finishing the first course of my institute. This year we only passed by Alushta but it was not possible to visit it again. Therefore I've put the old photo from 1972 where I sunbathed on a stone on a beach near Alushta.
