Yalta - Living History — A Night on the Town

A Night on the Town

After three days in Yalta, the largest city on this Ukrainian Riviera, I am really starting to enjoy the atmosphere as well as the many distractions the town has to offer.

The strip after dark is packed with people enjoying the warm summer nights and, if you are looking for a good time, the clubs and restaurants have everything you could ever want.

Last night Luba and I first went to the legendary "The Bird Nest," which is about twenty minutes drive from the town and located in a small castle standing on the edge of the cliffs. The décor is mediaeval, but the gourmet menu is modern, Italian inspired and could compete with any top restaurant in Rome or Paris.

After, we went to the night club Matrix, at the Hotel Oreanda, the only 4 start hotel in Yalta and with a parking lot that makes you imagine you're outside the casino in Monte Carlo. For the best Ukrainian food in Yalta, go to the restaurant Hutorok, where you get gypsy songs with your food. Excellent place. For sushi lovers, there's Nobu, which is also part of Hotel Oreanda. In Yalta there are only pebble beaches, but for a photographer this is perfect: no sand in my gear :-)

The beach life is a story all on its own. The men are hunters, the women arrogant gazelles: the game is extremely entertaining and I could spend hours just watching. The men circle their young victims before going in for the kill, usually loaded with gold chains, wearing tiny tight Adidas bathing trunks, mirror sunglasses and, best of all: a fat cigar in their hand. It is usually not lit, but who cares when it looks cool. I could almost hear David Attenborough in the background explaining how the male of the species approaches their female partners and about the necessary body language to succeed and survive; strangely enough these overly tanned and often over the hill guys usually score. Do not ask me how :-)

OK, back to business. You will love today's model. Her name is Iris, a 23 year old redhead from the Crimea with a tall skinny body, glowing light skin and the classic beauty that could decorate any magazine cover and be found strolling on any catwalk. She chose to work as a stewardess for Ukrainian airlines in Simferopol, but luckily I managed to get hold of her and now her beauty will be spread with the wind. If you ever come to Yalta to enjoy some of the attractions described above, Iris might just be the one serving you on your flight to the Crimea.

Till tomorrow

Alexandra Miss Yalta 2004
Way to go, Petter! You certainly have the eye for spotting the ultimate contestant at the Miss Yalta Competition. Alexandra is stunning! Thanks for making the effort to capture this beauty for us to look at. Too young to be a Hegre girl you say. Pity. Keep tabs on her for her 18th birthday. The photos would be nothing short of a miracle. Keep up the great work! Phil Hilden
need to have contact dear!
impressed with the amazing and nice buts
Yalta NOW in 2008
I am sorry to inform you that Yalta has made a 180 degrees turn from the time you last visited in 2004. The women, some of them stunning, are very unfriendly and hostile to visitors (and I am trying to be very polite in describing them).

It is interesting to read your description of men hunting women (you called them gazelles) on the beach. It is nothing like this today. You will not spot any men hunting on the beach. They may try it once. The reaction they get from women is enough to demoralize the stongest men and get them packing back home, all depressed.

Keep up the good work and hopefully you will travel further east to places like Georgia, Armenia, Turkmenistan, Azerbajan and post photos of what these women look like. Thanks.
I agree with you Petter. "Look at that ass". Amazing!!
Your work
Your work is outstanding! A new fan.

About Crimea
Facts about Yalta - Living History

At Hegre-Art we like to explore new destinations and feel proud to be among the first to discover the marvels of Crimea with its stunning scenery and a rugged, time sculptured coast on the far side of the Black Sea from Turkey. The sea is surrounded by white peaked mountains and is so warm the coastal resorts were a favourite summer escape of the Russian tsars and it is hardly surprising that it is known today as the Black Sea Riviera.

Greeks founded cities along the coast and you can explore ancient ruins that are little changed since the silk traders passed through this way on their long journeys from China to Venice. When you get bored with history, there's plenty of diversions, scuba diving, chic sexy restaurants and, of course, the chicest, sexiest girls in the world.
