The Swallow's Nest is a decorative castle near Yalta on the Crimean peninsula in southern Ukraine. It was built between 1911 and 1912 in Gaspra, on top of the 40-metre (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff. The castle overlooks the Cape of Ai-Todor of the Black Sea and is one of the most popular visitor attractions in Crimea.  It has become the symbol of Crimea's southern coastline.
