The Happy Prince Featured Welcome Swallow Print

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince - by Oscar Wilde. In a town where a lot of poor people are suffering, a lonely swallow meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince", who had lived in a palace where sorrow isn't allowed to enter. Viewing people suffering in poverty from high above, Prince asks the swallow to take the ruby from his hilt, the sapphires from his eyes, and the golden leaf covering his body to give to the poor

Swallows Nest - Cape of Ai-Todor, Crimea, Ukraine Featured Welcome Swallow Print

Swallows Nest - Cape of Ai-Todor, Crimea, Ukraine

The Swallow's Nest - perched up on the Aurora cliff overlooking the Cape of Ai-Todor on the Black Sea coast between Yalta and Alupka, in Crimea, Ukraine. The first building on the Aurora Cliff (a wooden cottage romantically named the "Castle of Love") was constructed for a Russian general circa 1895 (the structure pictured here), with ownership passing to A. K. Tobin, a court doctor to the Russian Tsar. In 1911, Baron von Steingel (a Baltic German noble) who had made a fortune extracting oil in Baku, acquired the timber cottage (pictured) and within a year had it replaced with the current building called Schwalbennest ('Swallow's Nest') Date: circa 1908
