Actually it was my second visit! Just love the place! The architecture is really breathtaking, especially the sea view, The park is nice though a bit unkept, but the palace is so nice that you close your eayes on drawbacks!

There is audio guide in many language, English, German, Chinese. The palace is the combination of Renaissance style. The architecture is beautiful. I paid for 150 for entrance. I got discount, because I have russian student card.

Also known as Aloupka Palace. Stopped here as part of our Viking river cruise in May, 2012. For those who enjoy touring palatial residences, make sure that this one is on your list. Check out the Medici Lions -- well they aren't really Medici but rather replicas of the Medici Lions. Not bad having a view of the Black Sea,... More

Unique style of this palace gives a nod to the cultures of Europe and the Middle East by varying the architectural influence for the north and south entrances.

I loved visiting this palace, it's got unique architecture both from inside and out. There's the main exhibition taking you through the major rooms and there are separate museums around the palace. You can either purchase tickets separately, or you can get a combination ticket. Guided tours in Russian depart almost all the time, I'm not sure about guided tours... More

I visited the Vorontsov Palace twice in my life and I really loved it! It is very beautiful! I loved the architecture of the palace, the park, the atmosphere. Our guide was also very nice and she told us a lot of useful information about the place. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in Crimea!
