Roman Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary was built in Yalta in 1906 under supervision and design of architect N. Krasnov. However it was not completed in its entirety. Bell tower  of Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary was not completed. Catholic community numbered over 500 people and its representatives asked provincial authorities for a new house of worship. Colonel M. Malinovsky, Verger and Dr. Byalokur were engaged in finding a suitable piece of land in Yalta. They chose Pushkin Boulevard and in 1898 first draft was introduced by N. Krasnov. Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary was closed in 1928 by Soviet government. It housed branch of historic museum in Yalta. In 1988 it was turned into a concert hall and in 1991 after fall of Soviet Union it was turned back into a Catholic church. Occasionally it hosts concerts of organ music.
