Alushta

Famed for its gorgeous picturesque surroundings, Alushta is a superb seaside resort town recommended for its curative qualities.

Alushta is a city of regional significance on the southern coast of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in Ukraine claimed by Russia as the Republic of Crimea. It serves as the administrative center of Alushta Municipality, one of the regions Crimea is divided into. The area is notable for its arid, rocky terrain due to its proximity to Crimean mountains.
