Thank you, dear people. I am glad that you like this photo. Crucescruiser, i don't mind if you will use the photo for your desktop.

Now, a little bit of history. First wooden building was erected in 1877-1878. Since then, it has changed by its different owners. It was built in the Neo-Gothic style between 1911-1912 by the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood, on top of 40-meter (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff. The dimensions of the building are only 20 m (66 ft) long by 10 m (33 ft) wide and 12 m height (40 ft). Survived an earthquake in 1927. It's an architectural symbol of Crimea's southern coastline. The photo was made from the boat.

Absolutely incredible! How old is the building? the expertise required to plan and build it is mindboggling.

I'm going to use the photo for my desktop, I hope you don't mind. It's just too awesome.
