PHOTO GALLERY
Crimean nature is amazing and multifaceted. There are endless sea expanses and inaccessible mountains, salt lakes and underground springs, flaming sunsets and tranquil transparent mornings. The air is saturated with aromas of lavender and thyme and rare species of animals inhabit the coast.

Our friends, photographers and staff members carefully capture life in the nature reserve in photos and videos. Please indicate the author, if you use them in your news articles, at exhibitions or in any other way. Don’t hesitate to contact us by email at zapovedcrimea@mail.ru, if you need the images in higher resolution.

Yalta Mountain-Forest Nature Reserve is not only about rare animal and plant species, but also a rare opportunity to be one with nature and listen to yourself.
Trekhglazka Cave will thrill you with its stalactites, stalagmites and other curious forms and snowdrifts in the midst of hot summer.
The spikes of Ai-Petri will invite you to go hiking or climbing and introduce you to Uchan-su Waterfall and 1000-year old yew trees.
The plateau will give you an opportunity to take the best scenery photos of Yalta at night and the picturesque coast.
