Maritime and naval, captivating and intriguing, Sevastopol and surroundings are a popular destination for travel in the Crimea. Those interested in a military theme will find a lot on the WWII and the Crimean War. The Cold War times will be presented in a visit to the disbanded top secret submarine base in Balaklava. On the archeological note, you will see the ruins of the ancient polis of Tauric Chersonesos. You will see the Grafskaya Pier, from which the city founders, Catherine II and Potemkin, have once seen Sevastopol for the first time. Many changes have happened from that 1787. Enjoy seeing it with us!
One of the most sanguinary and paradoxical wars of the 19th century, the Crimean War with the siege of Sevastopol has left lots of military and history sites in Sevastopol and surroundings to visit nowadays.
Hope every thing is good with you always.
Please for give me for robbing some of your precious time, but I would like to express some of my thoughts of my trip to Ukraine.
First I will like to say that I felt in love with your country, I was treated with respect, and I was impressed by the honesty when I was using the public buses and people forward the money to the collector by asking the next person to pass and so on, and even if change is due, it will be delivered back to the person and nobody will take a penny; I have never seen that in any country I have visited ( about 19 in three continents) Also I never was afraid to be robbed or assaulted in the streets of Kharkov or any other I have visited, as I took a train for almost a 2000 Kms. round trip all the way to Uzhgara, unfortunately, I did not expend much time in Kiev which looks a beautiful city, but I am planning to go back next year.
It was not easy for me since I do not speak Ukranian or Russian, although I can read some words, but thank to my extensive travel experience I was able to figure out situations, now I am determined to learn as much as I can of the languages, so next time it will be much easier.
I am planing to visit the south of Ukraine all the way to the Black Sea cities and landscapes, and I will need of your services again.
If you need my feed back of this trip for your agency you have my authorization to publish it.
Your services where of what it got me there and I will recommend it to any one is interested to go to beautiful Ukraine.
Miss Lugina, have a wonderful week.
