The description of the sightseeing points

Marble caves. The cave received it name “Marble” because of the soils where it was formed – marble-like limestone. The environment of the caves has been created for many years in the complete duck, with no influence of water. When you are inside, you breathe freely with full lungs while you realize that are in the ice cold kingdom. Or at least it is the impression that everything is icy. Actually, the temperature in the cave is plus 9 at relatively high humidity. The tourists in the cave are accompanied by music of different style in each underground hall. Hence the second name of the tour -“Melodies of Chatyr-Dug”.

Chersoneses-bellChersonesos. Founded in the 6th century before AD as one of Ancient Greece colonies, it for almost two thousand years remained the major cultural, economic and political centre. It took part in all important celebrations and events of ancient Greece. Moreover, it had its own currency which successfully competed with other currencies of the antique region. Later it was occupied by Romans.

Chersonesos is one of the paramount places to visit when you are the first time in the Crimea. It is one of the few places on the planet representing the antique world.

Bakhchisaray. Bakchisaray has unraveled architecture of the city, as it is built completely of stone.

Balaklava. You will follow the pass which antique Greek, Romans and filibusters used to walk and look from the fortification where Genoa knights used to stay on duty guarding their mission’s territory. You will swim in the water of the Golden or Silver beaches so many years ago attracted Odyssey and many travelers unsuspectingly allured by its peaceful charms.
