Earlier tourists came to Livadia to visit the palace and park, but now very many come for the sake of organ music.  This building (power station) was built simultaneously with the royal palace.  Now in the large elegant hall with stained-glass windows an organ is mounted.  

The organ is the most powerful musical instrument.  The Livadia organ is special.  It was created by musician and great master Vladislav Khromchenko.  A graduate of the Tallinn Music Academy, he came to Yalta as an organist, but here he was offered only a piano.  And the musician devised an unprecedented one.  He wrote out literature, drawing schemes from abroad, began to select materials.  For such calculations, profound knowledge of physics and mathematics is needed.  The raw material required jewelry precision.  

As a result, a small organ was built for the music school, then another for the Armenian church.  And in 1998 the Livadia Organ Hall was created.  

In the old, neglected building of the power plant of the Livadia Palace that has already served as a cinema, and a club and a warehouse, windows are stained with stained glass, the ceiling is decorated with patterned stucco, and it seems that the walls themselves radiate light, feel airy and warm.  

The Livadia Organ Hall hosts concerts of spiritual and secular music.  These 4800 pipes (the largest of over three meters, the smallest - only a few millimeters), sound, according to experts, better branded, brought from Germany or the Czech Republic.  A third of these pipes are made of local wood - from cedar, palm, cypress, sequoia .. Maybe this gives Livadia's organ a special and inimitable timbre.  

Annually organists of different countries meet in this hall, international festivals are held here.  

Livadia became the only place on the expanses of the former Union, where organs are being created.  And the only place in the world where there is a master who can create them manually.
