    Sandy, Bakhchisarai, Chufut-kale, Scientific, Mangup, Eski-kermen, Falcon

    In Sevastopol or Bakhchisarai it is good to begin or finish informative and extreme routes (including bicycle, horse, underwater, rock-climbing, speleoologiju, aeronautics), military-historical excursions, archaeological and military-search expeditions, military role modelling. Even the local church management, first of all, cares of temples on the most brisk ways of tourists. Well and the winemaking history here is closely connected with spirituality – Judaic and Christian so to drink not a sin, and an occasion to knowledge.

    Transport and bases of placing. civil airport Belbek recently has joined bus, railway and sea stations in Sevastopol still. In Bakhchisarai the autostation is directly at railway station. From Inkermana it is possible to go by trip steam-ship to bathe to a bay Holland or on the North side of Sevastopol. There go by minibuses and trip buses.

    One of the largest transport knots - autostation Northern where ferries and sea trams (small steam-ships) from the centre of Sevastopol very often go. From here there is a bus flight along all Western coast of Crimea through Evpatoria up to Black Sea. It is a lot of flights to Bakhchisarai, there are also straight lines to Simferopol. It is easy to get on all resorts of the Western coast.

    All interesting is in valleys of the rivers Chorgun (Black), Belbek, Kacha, Bodrak and Alma which will run from spurs of the Main ridge of Crimean mountains and, cutting Foothills ridges, modest enough streamlets run into Black sea at the western coast. In ustevyh zones resorts of Uchkuevka, Ljubimovka, Orlovka, Angular and Sandy where old Soviet boarding houses and bases of rest are supplemented with simple tent small towns, country houses, minihotels and magnificent country houses quickly develop. The garrison of naval pilots Kacha is between Orlovkoj and Angular, recently it is declassified, so many inhabitants accept tourists and in the apartment houses, and on summer residences, which much. They are located among vineyards, so here excellent fruit, vegetables and grapes. To a beach zone from housing estates about 1 km.

    Valleys very wide and unusually picturesque, on them are cleared quite good roads on which from 5 o'clock in the morning and till 6-7 evenings buses and minibuses quickly enough and cheaply rush. In the evening of flights of transport already is not present, with rare exception (there can be last flights of minibuses at 20 o'clock). Unfamiliar avtostoperov it is not accepted to take - neither in the afternoon, nor in the evening.

    Between river valleys there is a dense network of ancient pack tracks on which go, basically only tourists peshehodniki and go dzhipery, mountain bicyclists and konniki.

    Beaches in Sevastopol small and overloaded with people, the military technology and city neighbourhood at closeness of bays does not promote cleanliness of water. Remarkable galechnye beaches are at Balaklavy, but many of them are accessible only from the sea and at a calm weather.

    Sandy and Angular have rather narrow peschano-gravijnye beaches , behind them abrupt slopes or coastal breakages which should be fixed special ferro-concrete designs and gardening quite often tower.

    At with. Orlovka were stretched spacious enough peschano-gravijnye beaches with a flat bias, good both for children, and for adults. Rather narrow, but very interesting beaches are under abrupt coastal breakage which collapses after each big storm. In a breakage exposure there are layers of ancient densely packed sand. After storm and landslips it appears below, and you simply anywhere will not find such virgin cleanliness of a sand!

    The Beach under the Radio hill is known as nudistky, and remarkable sandy beaches Uchkuevki and Ljubimovki have all lines of modern sea resorts.

    the Historical parkway with numerous monuments to heroes of the first defence, strengthenings and tools is popular, first of all, thanks to art to the Panorama , created by 1905. The huge cloth represents reflexion by Russian of general storm of the English-French armies on June, 6th, 1856.
