Ai-Petri. Night, Full Moon. by Denis Belitsky on 500px
Okay, So you don’t like heights! Neither do I! But you’ve got to admit the view is incredible. This is Ai-Petri in the Crimean Mountains.
The name has Greek origins, and is translated as St. Peter, no not St. Petersburg, that was the previous post. Are you scared yet? The winds here can blow up to 110 mph – someplace you don’t want to be if it’s that windy.
Don’t worry you don’t have to climb to the top of this peak. There is a Cable Car that takes passengers from a station near Alupka to the main area in Ai-Petri, which costs about 60 rubles for adults and 30 rubles for children, one way.
But the wind isn’t the only thrill you will get here. Watch the following video, if you can watch the whole thing you’re my hero. Good Luck, hope you enjoy.
So if you don’t want to pay 60 rubles to go back down on the Cable car you can always just jump off a cliff.
