Founded on June 16, 1925 the Artek Pioneer youth camp was a sprawling internationalist complex of ten sub-camps and various facilities that hosted over 20,000 children yearly from across the USSR and around the world. It was located near Yalta on the Black Sea in the Crimea in what was, at the time, the Ukrainian SSR.
