Maritime and naval, captivating and intriguing, Sevastopol and surroundings are a popular destination for travel in the Crimea. Those interested in a military theme will find a lot on the WWII and the Crimean War. The Cold War times will be presented in a visit to the disbanded top secret submarine base in Balaklava. On the archeological note, you will see the ruins of the ancient polis of Tauric Chersonesos. You will see the Grafskaya Pier, from which the city founders, Catherine II and Potemkin, have once seen Sevastopol for the first time. Many changes have happened from that 1787. Enjoy seeing it with us!
One of the most sanguinary and paradoxical wars of the 19th century, the Crimean War with the siege of Sevastopol has left lots of military and history sites in Sevastopol and surroundings to visit nowadays.
I am now back home in Sweden, since 4 days, after a really great week in Odessa. I must have walked between 100-200 km in that city and worn out 2 pair of shoes during that time. And it was with mixed feelings I entered the airflight back home.
I also like to thank You again, Irina, for the great apartment and service You and your office provide, and You can be sure that I have promoted Odessa and your office a lot, among my friends, since I came home - the pictures I took of the city has really impressed them :-)
Odessa might be a worn down city (on its way up), and I understand if many people have a hard time dealing with all the chances in the society, but Odessa really did put its mark on me.
