This is a postcard of Yalta...the sea front.  It shows a view of the city of Yalta and Ai-Petri Mountain.  On the left side of the postcard is a view of the Naberezhna Lenia, a pedestrian promenade on the waterfront.

Yalta is a resort city in Crimea.  It lies to the south of the Crimean Mountains and within an amphitheater of hills.

Yalta has a humid subtropical climate.  In January, the average temperature is 39⁰ F.  In July, the average temperature is 75⁰ F.

The population of Yalta is 80,500 (2001 census).  The main ethnic groups of Yalta are: Russians (65.5%), Ukrainians (25.7%), Belarusians (1.6%), and Crimean Tatars (1.3%).

The Livadia Palace in Yalta was the site of the Yalta Conference, a meeting between the leaders of the Soviet Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom in February 1945.
