«Adalary Rocks – Two Twin-Cliffs Near Gurzuf»

Beautiful seascape with clouds and a boat floating under impressive clouds from a beautiful sight near Gurzuf, the Rocks Adalary. The famous rocks are located about 300 meters (1000 ft) from the South coast of Crimea near mountain Au-Dag (Bear mountain), part of it at the background of this picture. Adalary rocks remind miniature Gothic castles and the distance between them is about 40 (130 ft) meters. The name “Adalary” translated from Turkic means island. The height of the first (at the left) - 35 meters and a height of the second (at the right) - 48 meters. Long ago, these rocks have been connected with the shore, there was a natural bridge. But over time, the sea water destroyed the bridge under water and now visible only by their remains, covered with algae. About Rock Adalary go different legends as well.
