Balaklava Bay, Balaklava

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Balaklava
Surrounded by rocky hills and a small town, Balaklava Bay hosts several historical fortifications and one of the former Soviet Union's best-kept secrets. Explore the area around the sea by strolling through the quiet streets of the bay's namesake town, once the site of one of the Crimean War's most famous battles in 1854. Alternatively, visit the naval museum by the bay, housed in a formerly secret underground Soviet submarine base, to learn the inner workings of the USSR's Black Sea submarine fleet.

  • Arrived in Balaklava first time immediately planned a trip to the open sea. On the waterfront offered us a ride on a boat (drove four for 2000 rubles) for half an hour. Captain Maksim. Thank you very much! The whole trip telling of Bay City, attractions, life here. With humor, fun! Recommend) on a boat came out into the open sea. Who are lucky, you can meet with the dolphins. We rode in the evening-not met with them. But you can take a dip in the sea and make a huge amount of wonderful photos)))

  • Arrived in Balaklava yourself. On the seafront you meet people, offering sea walks on boats. We took such a half-hour walk. Price pleasure 1500 rub, only you and the speedboat captain. The captain told us about the main attractions of the Bay. It turned out a lot of beautiful photos.
