New - is well forgotten old, or you are welcome in the Crimea!
• The new - is well forgotten old, or you are welcome in the Crimea!
So there was a chance to have a rest on the territory of the Russian Crimea! The government promises that you can get there will be much cheaper rubles change is no longer necessary, and the beauty that inspired classics to create their immortal works, remained in the same place.
For those who are planning to get acquainted with the peninsula for the first time, and for those who think they know it completely, we decided to pick up a few tips on holiday.
The first thing to decide which vacation is preferable. If the priorities of comfort, the beach and cocktails in the evening, then any of the resort towns pleased to welcome you with open arms. You can look at the Koktebel, which operates the plant vintage wines and brandies, and runs the jazz festival in September.
You can stay in a never sleeping Sevastopol, where the air is still filled with the spirit of victory, and in Hersonissos, in ancient Greece, is still working antique theater. Or, for example, you can stay in Yalta, where modern five-star hotels stand next to dazzling palaces, temples and bridges.
But for those who do not want problems, because the Crimea, as well as any treasury fully revealed only to those who are willing to sweat properly.
My acquaintance with the peninsula started when I arrived at the Fox Bay, which is located near the resort village. Do you want to feel the spirit of this informal, to break away from the civilized reality and opostylevshih orders? So you too should call here! Beach Lieske called nudist, but this is not entirely true. Ie naked bodies here, of course, nobody will be surprised, but also on the look-dressed citizens, without any aggression. Despite the fact that the company comes on the heels and on the once deserted beach is now overcrowded by a variety of eateries, the old spirit of universal freedom and equality still fills the lungs of those who decided to put up my tent in the Fox Bay.
Is there a ruined Cinema, there are several abandoned (and not only) of vineyards, there is music and the company, salty sea sand and burning. In general, all that is needed for young, open world, and did not have a free people's finances, there will be.
Believes that such entertainment is not for you? Sea already rather tired of Turkey and Egypt, and naked people, if we honestly confused? Then I'll tell you about Mangup - the largest cave town in the region. There is incredible! I think that in this way describe a lot of things, but to see all the caves, look at the plateau with the highest point, to sit at the monastery, which is located on the reverse side for the first time to see all these tombstones with incomprehensible hieroglyphics ... this place is really like a fairy tale, and despite the that prohibits the guard to stay here for the night - personally I somehow remained, and only regret that remained just one.
This place has long been a mecca for all hippies Union lived here for years, then create and build, then improper to refuse the invitation to tea, and in the evenings, people are divided improvised dishes jointly arranging a feast. Maybe I'm exaggerating, but it's only because I really want to go back there.
From here you can head to the Grand Canyon, not one, of course, in America, and that the north-eastern border of the Ai-Petri array (by the way near the same Mangupa). The extent of his inferior overseas counterparts, but there is a lot to see there anyway. Besides relict trees, unique ecosystem and simply beautiful views, here you can swim in the so-called bath of youth, which is not only able to return the body to a few years of living (according to rumors), but also does not heat up more than 5-8 degrees Celsius, that is very refreshing.
It is not work up? Then he does not take the time to go back to a parking lot! Right from the entrance to the canyon can be reached by one of the most significant of the Crimean mountains - Ai-Petri, who ascended above the sea at 1346 meters. It is here collected mists and winds from all over the peninsula, here overlook the sea and the famous Yalta shaped teeth (protrusions on the ridge, up to 80 meters high), it is worth ruined wind power. In addition, you can walk down the mountain by cable car, which is considered the largest in Europe and has entrusted her straight to the southern coast of Crimea.
You say that Crimea - it is primarily the sea? Then be sure to go to Megan! To get there the easiest way of Sudak, first by taxi to the New World, and a long hike along the narrow path. On one side of the rock, on the other the sea crashing on the rocks (although it will still have to fly), and in front of an endless road under the scorching sun. It sounds probably not very good, but the result you will certainly enjoy. In local bays worth seeing the bottom (here it is especially diverse), catch crabs, and just take a break from the bustle of the resort. Live only in tents (or not), the water used to wear with springs, but with each passing year earlier dry, so be prepared to carry stocks for yourself.
I'm tired of all these difficulties? Then here are some more interesting places you can go to the cities. In the same Sudak worth seeing the Genoese fortress, a real medieval castle, with its torture and wardrobe.
Bakhchisaray Palace, sung by Pushkin, still waiting for new visitors, even concubines no longer languish in their little rooms, and the Falcons flew bonds tower. In Feodosii Ayvazovski a museum where the greatest number of stored scripts nearby seascape. In Sevastopol, have a chance to see the panorama and diorama - large-scale canvases illustrating the city protection at various times. This is only a small part of the attractions of well-forgotten old piece of our country, who recently returned to power under the wing. Wherever you go, be sure to advise the locals some place, that like a jewel falls into your treasury of memories of the peninsula. However, there need to be aware of some features.
The main Crimean trouble I personally believe the poor quality of water and food. I do not know what the problem is. Whether the weather is too hot, then local craftsmen in pursuit of the ruble is not particularly bother with the terms of the preparation of various dishes, or the requirements of sanitary and epidemiological stations have not yet reached these places, but too many friends have been unable to fully enjoy their stay, from -this stomach problems. Therefore, I highly recommend even at home stock enterosorbents quality. Personally, I take polisorb, means reliable and still let me down, and it helps on a whole range of problems, such as poisoning, diarrhea, alcohol and any other intoxication, various dermatoses, and much more. But here the taste and color, take it, what you believe, important to health after the holidays are not affected.
Almost on the coast very badly with firewood. If you still are going to live in a tent, it is best to take a gas burner. A fire can still dissolve, but if this thing have a problem - do not say I did not warn you.
The population in the Crimea friendly, people are very responsive, but still observe prudence. I once stole a backpack, and my friends right in public transport was pulled from the pockets of money. It is not necessary to show others his incredible consistency and as a result all will be well. In general, the Crimea - is perhaps the most amazing way to experience the outside without going through customs. Swim in the sea, without fear of shark attacks or sudden unfolding revolution (except that we saw dolphins), try the summer, as it should be and relax not only the body but the soul.
Have a good trip!
