  • The Imperial BARROW is one of the sights of Kerch, funerary monument 4 century BC State of Panticapaeum. Judging from its size and sophistication, it is possible to assume that the last shelter it gained the King Levkon The First dynasty of Spartokhids. Years of which in the year 349 389 bc. During the excavations of Barrow in 1837 a. Ashikom it turned out to be empty. Looters of Antiquities here have visited before official excavations began. It means that items found in the mound at the exhibition we will not see. And it turned out. In the Hall on the walls hang photo history of excavations on territory of Kerch, some documents and a few items from the excavation site and life of archeologists. Sparsely. All the core values were transferred to storage in St. Petersburg's Hermitage Museum. The mound can be visited independently, and all the information you need to know in a Museum in Barrow and with information boards.

  • Go to the city bus station and get on the bus No. 4, going to settlement adzhimushkaj, mound is located in the vicinity of the Adzhimushkay kamenolomen'. after experiencing a horrible road trip to Kerch takes you to the sights of the settlement Adzhimushkaj. The Imperial BARROW has quite a large area, but he barely stands out against the background of hilly terrain, i.e. not knowing about it, it is difficult to detect. In Kurgan leads Dromos (corridor). The vaults of the mound are made of large blocks held together by nothing. An interesting vaulted ceiling mound consists of rings with decreasing diameter. When you enter the corridor, it seems small, but if you look inside, it seems long. This optical effect of mathematics founded by ancient builders. Burial in Halifax are not found, presumably, he has repeatedly razgrabljalsja.

  • The first time was in SSSRe in the year 1987. Next there were many bas-reliefs. I liked. How much does not care. The second time was about in 2009. Entry was 20 UAH. I.e. to the entire company had 100 UAH. For what? With this money you can eat and nabuhat'sja the whole company. 20 UAH cost bottle of Cahors. So we climbed to the top of the mound and went down a goat trail right to the entrance. Bas-reliefs were removed. The building is certainly pretty, but simple and small.
