Not far from Bakhchisaray in the green Kacha River Valley aficionados of less travelled routes would be awarded by a magnificent view of the ancient cave monastery of Kachi-Kalyon. The history carved in stone dates to the 6th- 18th centuries, times of flourishing and development of the monastery. Impressive caves and grottoes bear ancient monastic attributes: cells for monks, remnants of the necropolis, a winery with massive stone wine presses, the Anastasia Church remains, chapel with still observable cut in the stone cross and the Anastasia Spring. This cave town belongs to less studied historical sites of the Crimea. Hopefully, the research works will go ahead of the natural demolition of the place, and scientists will have what to research.
