Ai-Petri Mountains Cable Car in Crimea

Ai-Petri is a peak in the Crimean Mountains. There is a Cable Car that takes passengers to the main area in Ai-Petri. The upper station is located at an altitude of 1153 meters and offers spectacular views of the southern coast of Crimea. 
The peak is actually the weathered remains of a huge coral reef formed millions of years ago, when this area was under the sea.

On the left you see “Swallow’s Nest”, a castle built in the late XIX century near Yalta, in the South of Crimea.
