The Vorontsov Palace or the Alupka Palace is a historic palace situated at the foot of the Crimean Mountains near the town of Alupka in Crimea. It is one of the oldest and largest palaces in Crimea, and one of the most popular tourist attractions on the southern coast⠀
•⠀
The palace was built between 1828 and 1848 for Russian Prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov for use as his personal summer residence at a cost of 9 million silver rubles⠀
•⠀
English architect Edward Blore who was later particularly well known there for completing the design of Buckingham Palace in London designed the palace in a hybrid of several architectural styles including elements of Scottish Baronial, Mughal architecture, and Gothic Revival architecture⠀
•⠀
Once completed, the complex was visited by many members of the Russian Empire’s elite ruling class, a number of which were so taken with the palace and its seaboard site that they were moved to create their own summer retreats in the Crimea. By the early 20th century not only many aristocrats, but also members of the Imperial Family, including the Tsar himself, had palaces in an assortment of architectural styles in the vicinity⠀
•⠀
An important feature of the Vorontsov Palace is the adjoining park ensemble, which features 40 hectares (99 acres) of greenery and forestry arranged by German landscape gardener Carolus Keebach⠀
•⠀
Today, the palace is part of the “Alupka Palace-Park Complex,” a national historical preserve; and owing to its status as an important local attraction and architectural monument, the complex has been frequently featured in Ukrainian and Soviet cinema productions⠀
