Sevestopol: Crimea’s key landmark
Sevastopol was founded in 1783 as a home port. The city has made it to textbooks as a city of heroes that had survived two serious sieges. In the Soviet times, the city was partially closed while the Balaklava district was a closed town within the closed city. After the end of the World War II, Sevastopol had been restored by the best Soviet architects and now it is a fast-growing, fast-moving city filled with a vibrant cultural life and beautiful natural sights. We are going to visit the spots that will provide you with the best understanding of Sevastopol and Balaklava. And, of course, you will be able to take beautiful pictures and collect wonderful memories.
