Livadiya (Ukrainian: Лівадія; Russian: Ливадия; Crimean Tatar: Livadiia; Greek: Λιβαδιά) is an urban-type settlement in Yalta Municipality of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea; a territory recognized by a majority of countries as part of Ukraine but incorporated by Russia as the Republic of Crimea. It is located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) west of Yalta. Population: 1,074 (2014 Census).
A minor Crimean Tatar settlement in the Middle Ages, Livadiya was named thus by Lambros Katsonis, a Greek revolutionary and Imperial Russian Army officer, after Livadeia, Greece, the town he was born in, then part of the Ottoman Empire. Katsonis had been granted an estate there by Empress Catherine II, which he named thus.
The Livadia Palace, built in 1910-11, architect Nikolai Krasnov, is now a museum. It was formerly a summer palace of the last Russian Imperial family. In 1945, it served as the meeting place of the Yalta Conference and residence of Franklin Delano Roosevelt during the Conference. Nowadays, Livadiia is known primarily for producing wine and is also a noted health resort.
