Monument to the Flooded Ships in Sevastopol, Sevastopol

4.8
#1 of 22 in Sightseeing in Sevastopol
Monument Landmark
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.

  • 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.
