And then in the distance I saw dolphins. Real, living dolphins ... As in a fairy tale or a movie .. There were two.And they jumped over the water ... They were far away because soon their silhouettes disappeared completely from sight ... Then he lowered the speed boat and swam slowly swaying to the pier ... Crimean bright green trees, the12 smell of flowers, clean pebbles lined sidewalks, decorative waterfalls and fountains .... And the silence ... It was so quiet ... And practically deserted ... We were in May. Probably because of this ... Walking along the paths of the park, everything seemed unnaturally beautiful. As on the cover of the mysterious far-off country ... And then the palace .... Perhaps in Ukraine to find something like that is impossible.Near the palace people were much more ... Most people were in cash - walk the halls and corridors of the palace .. Queue meandered like a long-long snake ... for some reason we decided not to stand in it. I think in this day we had planned to catch a train .. And an impressive number of people hinted that if we get stuck here it ... In general, we confine ourselves to walk around the palace ... especially struck by this passage between two high walls, and another stone towers - I for some reason they are associated with Turkish, while in Turkey I was never.13
