Alupka (Ukrainian: Алупка, Russian: Алупка, Crimean Tatar: Alupka) is a resort town in Crimea, Ukraine, situated 17 km to the west of Yalta. It is famous for a picturesque palace, designed by Edward Blore in an extravagant mixture of Scottish baronial and Neo-Moorish styles and built in 1828-46 for prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov. A large English style park was designed and built for prince Vorontsov at the same time. During the Yalta Conference, the palace — spared by the Germans during World War II — served as the residence of Sir Winston Churchill.
