Yalta has always been popular with Russia's ruling elite with its warm subtropical climate. Surrounded by vineyards, orchards and mountains, Yalta was the favourite holiday residence for Czar Nicholas and his family. The city was later written into history books as the site for historic Conference between Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill in 1945 when the post war European map was decided.
Situated on the southern tip of Crimean Peninsula, Yalta is set in amphitheatre created by Crimean Mountains with the towering above peak of Mt. Ai-Petri (St. Peter). Yalta lies between the curving shore of Yalta Bay and Yuzhnoberezhnoe shosse, a highway which forms a winding ring road around the edge of the town, 1 or 2 kilometers up from the bay. The centre of town life is around and back from the mouth of little Bystraya River, and the centre of visitor life is the stretching west from Bystraya seafront promenade.
