Lg2375The most easily accessible of the cave cities of Crimea. Many well preserved and renovated buildings and caves. Acoustics in some of them is simply amazing. Before the side entrance for tourists is not so long ago, open (open) an ancient well with atypical for the time the descent in the form of a spiral staircase, disputes about which go so far. Struck the local animals, grasshoppers on the floor of the Palm and become foxes:) Slightly Southeast of trails which lead the excursion is ancient karaimskoe a cemetery, if I am not mistaken, the largest in Crimea. I advise you to look, sure to be remembered not less the chufut-kale.View original
Роман СеледковVery nice view from the mountains in all directions. Old unique cave city with many caves. The new city consists of roads, a pair of gates and several houses. The rest is destroyed by time and people. From the monastery to rise 40 minutes up the hill from the middle of the road route is broken, elderly people with bad legs will be tough. The descent is 20 minutes. Ticket Office is open from 9 to 15. Wednesday-Sunday.View original
Ilya PerevoznikovAmazing, unusual place, mandatory to visit. Were with his son (6 years old)-coped admirably. Even taking into account the fact that the Museum was closed (Tuesday, Wednesday-closed), really enjoyed it.View original
Саша СеледковаVery beautiful cave city. Beautiful views of the mountain. It is worth to go there. Only one of the downsides of the rise on the mountain is very high, with children and elderly people better not go there.View original
