Hurzuf or Gurzuf (Ukrainian: Гурзуф, Russian: Гурзу́ф, Crimean Tatar: Gurzuf) is a resort-town (urban-type settlement) in Yalta municipality of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, a territory recognized by a majority of countries as part of Ukraine and incorporated by Russia as the Republic of Crimea. Population: 9,117 (2013 population estimate).
It is located on the northern coast of the Black Sea. The correct pronunciation is Gurzuf, while Hurzuf is widely acceptable due to use of the South Russian dialect in the region and the Soviet reforms of Ukrainian language that excluded letter g from the Ukrainian alphabet.
Hurzuf is a former Crimean Tatar village, now a part of Greater Yalta. Alexander Pushkin visited Hurzuf in 1821 and ballet master Marius Petipa died here. The International Children Center Artek (former All-Union Young Pioneer camp Artek) is situated just behind the mount of Ayu-Dag (Bear Mountain). The World Organization of the Scout Movement's Eurasian Region is headquartered in the town.
