  • I love the bear mountain. A very picturesque place. I like the places are not equipped for tourists, "wild". Where you can wander at your leisure and stumble on others only occasionally. And you can walk all day and didn't come across. And without any stalls-mar'kov with any nonsense. There's even a plain pointers no, only arrows on rocks. But the mountain is small, it is difficult to know. Views of the sea and the town, of course, cool. There is a descent to the wild beach. Dream get up there somehow with a tent. Parking there. For lovers of secluded relaxation in nature the most it. Climb the mountain via the sanatorium "Crimea" is also a very interesting place. Such typical Soviet sanatorium, where time stood still as though. But without the ruins and thickets, everything was neat, just as if from another era. First you need to go to the top of a sanatorium on the stairs, then stairs end, you climb but road. The road too pretty soon ends and then just on the paths. Local for convenience (and maybe just for yourself) made references to stones-the observation deck overlooking the town on the ruins of the temple and on a wild beach. I have personally way from sanatorium to the wild Beach (which is, roughly speaking, up and down through the mountain) took about half an hour. Saw I was there once and a guide with a small group. But it seems to me, at such places need to wander alone or with loved ones.
