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.
Just a note to say thanks for your help with our delayed flight to Kiev & reorganising the rep Alex, who was really helpful. He waited for us at the airport until midnight, drove us to a hotel near Zhuliary airport then woke up the hotel owner to get us accommodation for the night! We would have been stuffed without him.
The sleeper train was great, especially after a hectic week in which we had delayed & missed flights, a lost visa card & our Kiev to London flight cancelled by the airline by mistake! The train mellowed us out a bit!
