Black Sea Castle, Yalta, Russia/Ukraine, 1987

The neo-Gothic Swallow’s Nest castle perches 130 feet (40 meters) above the Black Sea near Yalta in southern Ukraine. Built by a German noble in 1912, the flamboyant seaside residence now houses an Italian restaurant.

A Restaurant?!!
It looks like it was carved directly out of the rock.

    In soviet russia.. we post first.


    Gunface’s mother and I visited this on our first date. It was simply amazing.


    Dude i wold so have burning torches and black metal music constantly playing if i lived there. Also some horribly deformed hulk of a man who wears a skull shaped mask made out of iron scraps patrolling the grounds with a nail spiked pike. And Ronnie James Dio would be sitting on the top of the tower constantly singing rainbow in the dark while dragons being ridden by jagged armor knights are locked in an eternal battle of evil versus pure evil in a black and blue thunder lit sky made OF FIRE.


    This looks a lot like a police academy near Novorossiysk, which is on the shore of the same sea. Why, you ask?
    The land was offered free for construction that wouldn’t make the shore uglier. The solution was, of course, castle. Then it was repossessed in the Revolution and put to good use. Maybe the people who train there then go to fight the dragons that the above poster was talking about, but more likely they just get drunk a lot.


    thelotuseater725: After reading that, I am extremely aroused.


    thelotuseater725, whoever you are, you MUST make a comic book. NOW!

    Graphic novel. Whatever.

    Your talents are wasted on whatever you are doing now.


    That is just sweet. What I wouldn’t give to live somewhere like that…


    Oh, that’s pretty awesome. I should be heading to Ukraine at the end of the year, unfortunately Yalta is rather out of my way. Must look into it though.



    Another enlightening post.
    Thanks for consistently rising above the B.S.
