Endless list of places I’d love to visit someday

↳ Livadia, Ukraine

Livadia was the favorite summer residence of the Russian Imperial Family. Livadia is a small town, which is less than 2 miles west of Yalta. A minor Crimean Tatar settlement in Middle Ages, Livadia was named after the ancient Greek entrance into paradise in 1835, when a notable landscape park was laid out here. Livadia became a summer residence of the Russian tsars in 1861. Emperor Alexander III of Russia died there in 1894. The Livadia Palace, built in 1910-11, is now a museum. It was formerly a summer palace of the last Russian Imperial family. In 1945, it served as the meeting place of the Yalta Conference and residence of Franklin Delano Roosevelt during the Conference. Nowadays, Livadia is known primarily for producing wine and is also a noted health resort.
