Map picture[edit]

Maybe a map picture of where this place is should be included? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:11, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Agree this is DYK material[edit]

Great article. Surprised we did not have it earlier. Also something I forgot to mention in my last edit notes, I changed the links to the lastochka restaurant to direct towards the English version so that more people can access it. And how about that Italian restaurant? Italian cuisine in Crimea? Russian, Tatar or Turkish would be most appropriate for the location, especially Russian because of the general. Of course, there is the Roman connection from the AD 1st century so Italian is not completely random.--Riurik (discuss) 06:09, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Roman fortress?[edit]

I was not aware that Romans built any fortresses in Crimea. Can we source the claim? --Ghirla -трёп- 10:55, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, Charax really was the second strongest Roman fortres in Crimea (after Chersonessos). And it was relly built directly by Roman forces. Sources... Hm... There are many usefull books on the topic, but the best one is Don Alessandro 14:41, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
You are welcome to check my new article Charax, Crimea and make necessary corrections. --Ghirla -трёп- 09:09, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Used in the 1930s?[edit]

How can the building have been used by a reading club in the 1930s, when the next paragraph says that at least three years before that, the building was affected by an earthquake and was "remained closed [to the public] for more than forty years?" The cited source for the "reading club" claim is in Russian which I cannot read. Kavadi carrier 07:38, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

I changed it to say "in the 1920s" which seems more plausible. Kavadi carrier 07:40, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Swallow's Nest (Crimea)Swallow's Nest – better usage of the move target than just a redirect to Swallow's nest, which is uncapitalized and where one of the two other items is actually called Bird's nest soup, and the other one is unlikely ever to have a separate article. So no need to the dab descriptor in brackets. GreyHood Talk 18:48, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Changing appearance[edit]

The article notes that the Swallow's Nest was used in the 1987 Soviet film Desyat Negrityat, but the exterior shots don't look like the same building [1]. Was it only used for interior scenes? --Amble (talk) 20:54, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Baron von Steinheil / Steingel[edit]

I did a small run of internet research to figure out who the Baron is who had it built. I learned that Baltic German tends to spell the name Steinheil, but the names Stengel and Steingel are also used sometimes. Part of the reason is that the Baltic Germans were Russified. It seems that the Baron mentioned in this article was Teodor Shteingel. That article does not say he is a Baron but other sites on the web do. More of the same family can be found in the .ru pages (talk) 03:11, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

According to Russian-language Wikipedia (ru:Штейнгейль), Pavel Leonardovich Steingel (Павел Леонардович Штейнгель) was the oil-producer who built Swallow's Nest (ru:Ласточкино гнездо (Крым). He was a different person from Fedor Rudolfovich Steingel (Фёдор Рудольфович Штейнгель), who English-language Wikipedia calls Teodor Shteingel.-- Toddy1 (talk) 06:48, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Page 103 of The Caucasus & globalization: journal of social, political and economic studies Volume 8 Issue 3-4 2014 describes Pavel Steingel as follows:
"Pavel Steingel, Baron (2 July, 1880, Vladikavkaz, Terek Region-24 August, 1965, Château d’Abondant, outside Paris, buried in the cemetery in Chaville), engineer technologist, built a tile factory in Grozny; was involved in the oil business; organized an irrigation system on the lower Terek; fought in the Civil War; reached France via Constantinople; lived in Paris from 1920."
Note that it does not describe him as a tycoon.-- Toddy1 (talk) 11:11, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
The following source has an explicit statement that the Steingel who had the Swallow's Nest built/rebuilt was Pavel Leonardovich Steingel.
