Vorontsov Palace is the most visited attraction in Crimea and one of the most popular places in Ukraine. Every year, only the interior of the palace is visited by over 700,000 people. During the summer season and in May the number of visitors is enormous, so if you want to be alone, then come here out during the low season. 

The palace was built in 1828-1848 as a summer residence for the count and later prince Mikhail Vorontsov. The palace was designed by English architect E. Blore. He is also the author of the detailed design of Westminster Abbey and part of Buckingham palace. Curiously, Blore never came to Alupka and received all information by snailmail. By the way, the palace is built of local stone - diabase, which is two times harder than granite.

The palace gained worldwide fame in 1945 during the Crimean (Yalta) Conference of the Allied Powers, where a decision on the post-war division of the world was made. The palace housed Winston Churchill with delegation and hosted meetings of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the three powers. Churchill even wanted to buy the palace from Stalin.

Vorontsov Palace is one of the most technologically advanced attractions in Ukraine. It has wi-fi, a web camera and audio guides in six languages: Ukrainian, Russian, German, English, French, and Chinese.

Many times the palace was involved in Soviet and Ukrainian movies.
