Dacha Milos is one of the most famous
monuments in Feodosiya. It was constructed between 1909 and
1911 after it was commissioned by wealthy merchant Ivan Krym.
Ivan Krym left his home town of Feodosiya to look for better
after years and achieving success in business life he returned back home after he made a fortune. He
constructed his summer private residence or dacha in Ancient
Greek style. Parts of his residence look like ancient Greek
statues that are found in Athens in Greece. In fact ancient Greek
architecture was important in designing the exterior as well as
interior of this beautiful private estate. Even its name Milos is
Greek in origin. Dacha Milos consists of two floors with a terrace
decorated with caryatids or Ancient Greek deities.
