Tour Bakhchisaray Historical and Cultural Preserve/ Hanskiy Castle in Bakhchysarai, a gem of Ottoman architecture that represents the traditional Crimean Tatar lifestyle of the 16th century.

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.

  • While in the Palace, you can feel the smell of antiquity, very cute and mentally, of course it is not, but is also very good and charming! Recommend a visit!

  • From this the hansky Palace remained only one wall. The museum itself has made no special impression, well, does not fit what I saw with the word Palace! And the same for 400 p per person (

  • Went to bakhchisarai it is for sightseeing in hansky a Palace. Prior to this were in Istanbul in the Khan Palace-like to compare. If you do the opposite, it would be interesting. And, of course, the bakhchsarai Palace strongly inferior to Istanbul. But beautiful and interesting. People who have never been in such places it is necessary to go. Immersed in the lives of the rulers and their wives. Of course, attracts all the fountain of tears, that and a fountain is difficult to call. But along with the narrated history is impressive. There really lie in summer fresh flowers. What's nice is allowed into the Palace only with a guide. So everything is clear and interesting. I advise you to go there!
