Russia – Ai-Petri bridge that leads to the sky

View of the peak itself is an incredible sight to see. Petri-Ai (Ai Petri Krim) is one of the most beautiful mountain peaks Crimean, 1234.2 m high. The name is of Greek origin and translates as Sv. Peter.

In addition to the somewhat troublesome winds, the high peak is also one of the foggiest places in the Ukraine, giving the heights an air of mystery and danger. But for all the foggy and blustery conditions on the 4,000 foot elevation, it offers amazing views the surrounding cities of Yalta and Alupka, as well as the Black Sea.

Four mountain have a height of 7 to 19 m.Before 150-160 million years ago near the Ai-Petra there are active volcanoes. Remains to be seen near the village of Melas and Foros. There is a cable car which takes passengers from the station near Alupka to major fields in the Ai-Petri.

The most well known feature is a tall cross that has been planted in the actual peak, which is a lone stone pillar. Sightseers can reach the via a pair of wood-slate cable bridges that stretch out over the often cloudy void. It certainly does not look to be for the faint of heart. The cable bridges were built in recent years, and allows for safe passage to the cross that was long-ago erected on a rock formation.

At Ai-Petri is no maximum number of foggy days (not only in Crimea, but also in Ukraine). Ai-Petri, entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest windy place in Ukraine.The wind blows for 125 days in a year and up to speeds of 100 miles per hour.
