Crimean Tour with Tours to Ukraine

  We are proud to offer another big trip to Ukraine! Welcome to the South of Ukraine, extraordinary land of the Crimea.

If you ever visited Ukraine you could not have missed that land though we guarantee that with our company you will see what big groups usually miss out.

A trip around the Crimean Peninsula will surprise you with its unique collision of ancient and modern history, mountains and the sea, steppes and rocks, cave monasteries and palaces.

A full trip will take 8 days and we will just touch upon the most interesting landmarks, as you can easily spend   a month in the Crimea and be never bored or tired to discover new sights and get new experience.

 You will be able to explore remnants of Scythian Capital Naples in Simferopol (III c. BC- IV c. AD), cave monasteries and abandoned towns of Bakhchisaray area (Chufut- Kale VI-XVIII cc.) and Inkerman(St. Clement \'s monastery, Kalamita town IV-XVII).

You will be astonished by the remnants of ancient Greek town (Polis) of Chersonese 422-21 AD where Prince Volodymyr was baptized and wed with Byzantium princess Anna in 988  (Sevastopol) and  ancient Greek town of Pantikapey VII c. BC ( Kerch).

 Glory of Russian Arms can be felt in   Sevastopol (founded in 1783)with its Painted Panorama of Great Sevastopol Battle of 1854 , best described by Leo Tolstoy and  a secret Soviet military nuclear submarine plant of the times of Cold War ( 1957) which is now open for observation ( Balaklava). You will be amazed by a necklace of beautiful palaces of the 19th century, including the famous Livadiya palace (Big Yalta), Voronzov Palace ( Alupka) with its landscape park, Massandra, former residence of Russian Tsars and numerous wineries , medieval fortresses of Chembalo ( Balaklava) and Sudak .... All these make up a shortened list of sights   which you simply MUST see if you are there.

Add up pure mountain or steppe air mixed up with the forest or sea breathing, tender waves patting the ancient rocks and you will feel a desire to have this life experience had.
