Grafskaya Wharf, Sevastopol

(240+ reviews on the web)
Pier / Boardwalk
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.

  • Beautiful architecture! but desolation spoils everything. Dirt shherblenye stairs, walls cracked columns suggest longing.

  • A beautiful vantage point, history is everything here already said and the photos speak for themselves. If you walk on the promenade, it is either at the beginning or at the end.

  • Count with Kornilov many more interesting. And most importantly, the count instead of III International! In the evening the water looks amazing! And next boating ... Under the closure, a discount-polymeric by-products. An interesting excursion at 30 min.
