Dating back to the 1500s, this complex contains mosques, a cemetery, and former palaces spread across 4 hectares (10 acres) of landscaped gardens. Similar Islamic structures can be found in only a few places within Europe, including the Alhambra in Spain. Observe the compound ornaments fashioned by artists from Turkey, Italy, and Iran, and take time to explore the interior's fountains and bronze furnishings.

  • If you are in bakhchisarai, visit. I took the ticket to a tour group. The truth had to wait until the Group nabralas'ju very much. Interesting, beautiful architecture. Gardens and fountain of tears will not leave you indifferent. I was on an overcast day, so the crowds were not.
