Love castle story
Swallow's Nest Castle, also known as "Castle of Love" is one of the most attractive destinations in Yalta, Crimea, southern Ukraine.

The castle was built on the top of Aurora cliff, east of the cape. Theodore (Ai-Todor), Black Sea. You can see Swallow’s Nest from afar off the coast or even from the highway between Yalta and Simeiz. Swallow’s Nest Castle was built in Gothic architecture with space filled with light, fresh air bringing a magical romantic look. Open balconies, curved windows and vertical spiers make "Nest of Love" an ideal venue for creative inspiration for artists and photographers.

Swallow’s Nest Castle has a very interesting history. A Russian general in the Russo-Turkish War fell in love with the Black Sea from the top of the Aurora cliff. The general built a wooden house on the headland of Ai-Todor, but did not live here long. Just a few years later, a royal doctor named Adalbert Karlovic Tobin, also a member of Yalta city council, bought the place. He built stone walls and built To Yen castle at the location of the old wooden house.

After the death of Dr. Tobin and his wife in 1901, a famous German oil trader at that time, Baron Steinheil, bought the castle when it was damaged. Over the next two years, the castle was rebuilt, and the roof was painted red with white walls.

Along with the new appearance, the castle was renamed "Castle of Love". From 1910 to 1912, Swallow's Nest continued to be rebuilt, and finally the Russian architect Alexander Sherwood brought the look of Gothic architecture today.

In 1927, a magnitude 6-7 earthquake caused Aurora cliffs to be severely fractured and the castle was forced to close 40 years later. Once restored, Swallow's Nest has become a restaurant, a destination for diners to enjoy Italian food in the romantic natural setting, immersing in the vast space of Ai-Todor cape and Hehai beach at night.
