Seasons and public in Yalta
"Їы=шэёъшщ the season is especially populous and magnificent. However, in Yalta there is not one season, and whole three: print, silk and velvet.
Print - the most long, the most uninteresting and the most silent. Visitors students, kursistki, an average hand officials and, mainly, patients do it ordinary.
Needless to say that a silk season more elegant and rich. Public of this season is made by merchant class, officials are larger and so on. Here already the life is unwound more widely: many exploit in mountains but before ordering a horse, long enough bargain. In a city kursaal balls begin, and in park in the evenings plays a fine string band.
But "the velvet season"! These are golden days of Yalta, yes, perhaps, and for all Crimean coast. It proceeds no more than month and usually coincides with last week the Lent, with Easter and Fominoj week.
One come to get rid of sad necessity to do visits, others - as a newly-married couple, making a wedding trip, and the third - their majority - because it is fashionable that at this time in Yalta all gathers notable and rich that it is possible to flash toilets and beauty, to fasten favourable acquaintances. The nature, of course, nobody notices. And it is necessary to tell, what exactly during this spring time Crimea all in white-pink a smoke of blossoming apple-trees, almonds, pears, peaches and apricots... Freshened by magic sea air, really яЁхъЁрёхэ."
Alexander Kuprin , the XX-th century beginning
As well as why already in prerevolutionary years "the velvet season" began to call September and October - tender and warm Yalta autumn, there is no mention. In the beginning about trips of this time spoke – "эр виноград" and then the autumn became favourite time of artists, writers, any avant-gardists and persons of the liberal professions, preferring to put on in a heavy and free velvet. So properties of this soft, warm and magnificent matter have at all merged with delights of the Yalta autumn.
Wide popularity of a city in creativity of known persons of the Russian empire, and then and Soviet Union, persons not simply creative, but recognised, all favourite, and the main thing – achieved in a life of much, has made Yalta a criterion of vital success and a symbol of a beautiful life. Yalta has served its purpose in formation of the Ukrainian and Belarus literature in empire bowels, and today, becoming summer political capital independent Ukraine , arranges leaders of all new states for meetings "схч галстуков".
Modern seasons. we Will begin with New year . From last week December all inexpensive hotels and resort health resorts are filled with schoolboys from Ukraine, Russia and other republics, and at prestigious institutions such park of magnificent cars that will not concede to any well-known motor show of Europe is built. Thousand succeeding businessmen and politicians from Dnepropetrovsk, Kiev, Zaporozhye, Kharkov and other cities direct to sum up year in pleasant family (and not only) an environment. Bathing in pools with the warmed-up sea water and walks on blossoming parks are accessible both that, and another.
Many Moscow firms the first 10 days of year go on leave all collective from the director to the cleaner, and it too a success indicator, the best conformity for which - Yalta.
Then there comes calm. Only on days off all the same public on the cars comes for the weekend. Splashes happen on Day of sacred Valentine (on February, 14th) and on March, 8th when already all sunbathe, and separate daredevils even bathe in the sea.
the Spring vacation is again filled in Yalta by children from the different countries.
May holidays - the first 10-12 days of May all hotels, health resorts, and even a private sector are simply overflowed. At desire to join these lucky persons advancing summer, you should take care of tickets and residing in advance. All same advanced Moscow firms and leave at this time in collective holiday for 10 days. However, prospering Simferopol - too.
Surprisingly and even it is insulting, but June became on a resort time of schoolboys younger and middle age, and also every possible exempts. Thus that the sea already warm, strawberries and sweet cherries, and also various fresh greens abundance. There are no only Yalta onions. But there is no also a chaos, and the prices for residing and a food - almost winter!
July-August-September - time a high season : all is expensive also all is filled. Approximately fifty-fifty (on 40%) - Ukraine and Russia, is a lot of Byelorussians, then - having a rest of republics of Central Asia, and from foreigners most of all Germans.
October - the best time for treatment and excursions and still good conditions for bathing in the sea.
the November vacation - time of family rest, school travel and excursions. From many cities of Ukraine it is possible to come, having spent night in a train, only for one day it is very convenient and inexpensive.
All year long in Yalta the international scientific and business meetings are held. Even politicians any more do not have meetings in August-September. They suit shared problems to overcome them in Yalta, several times in a year, but only on advantage to a city - highways throughout hundreds kilometres clean it special vacuum cleaners. I think that few roads to the world are so rich with blossoming roses both valuable breeds of trees and ornamental shrubs.
