Grafskaya Wharf, Sevastopol

4.6
Walk down the stairs of the white granite Grafskaya Wharf to reach the sea, and find out about historical events that occurred at the site. Dorian columns create a popular photography spot, and thousands of people lounge on the stairs throughout the year. Dating back to 1783, when it was just a wooden quay, the monument has changed in appearance through time, eventually becoming a Roman temple-like structure. Prominent Italian sculptor Ferdinando Pellichio added marble lions, and the city council installed memorial plaques describing historic events that happened here. Of particular note is the fact that the site served as a communication channel between the town's defenders during the Crimean War.

  • Very beautiful place, albeit small. There are always plenty of people and views of the Bay with fighting ships. Watching, you can spend a lot of time, even to sit on a wooden pier, you can. Many walking tours offer-quite interesting and just half an hour.

  • Many times was on count landing stage on the area of Admiral Nakhimov, arriving in the summer on the parades of the Black Sea fleet and easy going stroll on a boat in the year 1786. Commander of Sevastopol Squadron was appointed captain of the 1st rank, Earl M. Vojnovic, soon received the Admiral's Chin in honor of a name and the name stuck, although under the pier it was named in honor of Catherine II. During the Crimean War, was severely damaged, it was going to supply troops. Hence, in November 1920 year were leaving the ships and emigrants the remnants of the White Army. My relative General Pokrovsky here sailed with Baron Vrangelem to Constantinople. So for me not just Marina colonnade and a place from which to begin a naval parade of the entire Crimean history Mandatory. place to visit in Crimea
