The region "Big Yalta" is known to all international childrens camp "Artek".
If you look at the statistics, we can say that almost a hundred years of existence of this institution it has had time to go over fifteen million children from different corners of the Earth.
"Artek" - a special in many ways a unique institution - the territory of dreams, joy and friendship.
There was a childrens center in the following way: in the autumn of 1924, at the annual celebration of the pioneers in Moscow, it was announced that in the Crimea will be open first camp for children Moscow.
From the word quickly got down to business: the summer of 1925 to the east of Gurzuf resort area in the tract "Artek" settled first shift camp of the same name. "Pioneers" was eighty.
Already a year later he became an international camp - to the Soviet children were joined by German children.
In the thirties, "Artek" was to take the children throughout the year - there are several winter erected buildings. In 1937, the camp opened its doors to children from Spain, which was at the time of the war. When the Great Patriotic War, the institution involuntarily terminated its work. But by 1944 "Artek" was almost completely restored.
In the early seventies of the last century summer camp consisted in its "arsenal" a hundred and fifty buildings and the surrounding area had a large (two hundred and eight hectares), with landscaped parks, sports grounds, etc. Forty-odd hectares occupied alone beaches - stretching from the coastline for more than seven kilometers. During one shift, such a complex could now take at least twenty seven thousand children.
In the nineties, the "Artek", as the whole Soviet Union collapsed experiencing not the best of times. Currently, under the legendary name "Artek" combined several childrens camps. Some are located on the western slope of Mount Ayu-Dag (the most famous of them is the "Crystal" and "Amber"), others are in close proximity to the seaside ("Sea", "The Lake", "The Field", "river"), the third - in the vicinity of Gurzuf.
Although in general the camp had long ceased to be a year-round and, moreover, a pioneer, but this pastime there was less than desirable and attractive in all respects. Children "Artek" always happy - great pools, beaches and natural beauty are waiting for them.
A very wide range of activities and by preference, from learning the basics of survival in the "wild" natural conditions and riding lessons to work in the studio and learning to drive at a driving school.
Of course, still held traditional mountain hiking and trekking - not only in the outskirts of Greater Yalta, but all over the Crimea. Regularly held sporting competitions and international competitions.
All the good from the Soviet period, the modern "Artek" preserved at the same time upgraded according to the requirements of modernity.
International Childrens Center currently owns the stadium, built in accordance with Olympic standards (7,200 seats), the school of more than 1,200 seats and three medical institutions.
In addition, the "Artek" has several swimming pools (both open and closed), its own film studio, a museum, a so-called childrens maritime fleet and two Chalets - "Krinichki" and "Dubrava."
