Yalta is an important setting in the new novel The Wittenbergs by Sarah Klassen. I just finished reading it and it brought back memories of our stay in Yalta a couple years ago.
Dinner in a Turkish restaurant
Yalta is on the Black Sea
Musicians on the Yalta Promenade
Checking out Anton Chekov’s House
Waitresses laughing at Dave. He asked for help in finding the best holopchi in Yalta
Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin met at Lavadia Palace in Yalta to reorganize post-war Europe and figure out who would govern Germany in February of 1945
Dave forced me to make a loser sign over Stalin’s head or he threatened that he wouldn’t take anymore photos on our Ukraine trip
People watching on the beach in Yalta.
