Alupka. Map: IX-15 City (2001 pop 9,018) on the Crimean southern shore, 17 km southwest of Yalta and under the administration of the Yalta city council. Alupka's climate makes it one of the best resort areas in the Crimea. The city has many sanatoriums and resort buildings. The former palace of Prince Mikhail Vorontsov (photo: Vorontsov palace), built in 1828-48 and designed by the English architect E. Blore in pseudo-Gothic style, with a Moorish portal and surrounded by a 40 ha park, has been converted into a museum containing 19th-century furniture, porcelain, bronze, crystal, and works by Western European, Russian, and Ukrainian artists (including Kostiantyn Trutovsky and Serhii Vasylkivsky).
