Ai-Petri Mountain and Chairlift

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Fodor's Review

About 1 km (⅓ mi) east of Alupka, behind a little cluster of market stalls, is the cable car that swings you up the side of Mount Ai-Petri. The truly breathtaking ride goes across the foothills and up the mountain's sheer face, offering unobstructed views of the coast and the sea. The course of the chairlift begins quayside and then travels 1,233 meters up the mountain in about 10 minutes; it's a short but very dramatic ride. As you go up, you'll be able to see the elegant dome of St. Alexander Nevsky cathederal.
