View of the Swallow's Nest Castle (Lastochkino Gnezdo) from the top of Aurora cliff. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the Crimean Peninsula. The beautiful decorative Neo-Gothic castle was constructed by design of the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood between 1911 and 1912 on money commissioned from the owner of this land, Baron von Steingel, a Baltic German noble who had made a fortune extracting oil in Baku, acquired the timber cottage and within a year had it replaced with the current building almost within a year.
