The mountain Ai-Petri (translated from Greek Saint Peter) is a peak in the Crimean Mountains. At the first half of 19th century, an impressive palace in the style of English castle was built at the foot of the mountain by design of English architect Edward Blore and his assistant William Hunt near the town of Alupka. The place became a summer residence for Prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov, the Governor-General of Novorossiysk Province.
