Monument to the Flooded Ships in Sevastopol, Sevastopol

#2 of 47 in Things to do in Sevastopol
Commemorating 50 years from the First Defense of Sevastopol, rises 16.7 m (54.7 ft) out of the sea. As a part of the memorial complex that was created in 1905, this large Corinthian column with an eagle on the top reminds visitors of the sacrifice made in a battle against the Allied navy. Aware that the enemy had a much stronger army, the Russian military council created a barrier using all its ships, and the entire defense force united at land. This prevented the powerful enemy from approaching. If you swim to the landmark, you'll also see a plaque on its granite base, featuring a map of the sites where the ships sank.

    Apparently unfamiliar with the monuments can give so you can feel the passage of time slowly sinking just moments before the sun goes down is not in this location, Park days. Is a place of feeling is not what you would expect the locals to get a glimpse. I was surprised to swim here.

  • Probably most symbolic site of Sevastopol' and an important part of Russian naval history.
  • Very beautiful monument to look at while enjoying the wonderful views of the surrounding bay.
  • Beautiful monument located by the coast of Ukrainian city Sevastopol
  • Iconic site
  • Though I haven't lived here for the last 23 years Sevastopol is my home town and in the years it's been through a lot of change. This area is beautiful, peaceful and clean. Save an afternoon for a stroll, a boat ride and some music, the aquarium and plenty of history.
