Sevastopol + Balaklava + Bakhchisarai


We begin with the historical part of the city with lots of monuments dedicated to two heroic defences of the city during the Crimean War and WWII. Then we visit the Panorama Museum. Its canvas represents one day of June 18, 1855 out of 349 days of the siege of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. Then we proceed to Balaclava (a small town, satellite of Sevastopol) and visit the Cold War Museum located on the territory of the former secret Soviet base of submarines.
On the way to Bakhchisarai you will see the Valley of Death, the place of the charge of the British Light Brigade. In Bakhchisarai the palace built in the 16th century, the residence of the Crimean Khans in the 16-18 centuries is located. The palace built after the example of one of the palaces of medieval Istanbul is the only monument of such a type on the territory of the former Soviet Union.
