Swallow's Nest (Lastochkino Gnizdo), the the Sea Castle

Swallow's Nest is a mock-medieval castle near Yalta, in Crimea, Ukraine. It was built between 1911–1912 near Gaspra, on top of 40-meter (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff, to a Neo-Gothic design by the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood. The castle overlooks Ai–Todor cape of the Black Sea, accessible from the Atlantic Ocean, and is located near the remnants of the Roman castrum of Charax. Swallow's Nest
