  • The name Ai-Petri is of Greek origin and translates as "Saint Peter". We went on a car from Yalta, on serpentine with the views of the "relic" forest. On the way to the mountain, we stopped at the waterfall Uchan-su (98 m) and "Silver Gazebo". The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.
