Kachi-Kalyon Cave Town

Kachi-Kalion
Operation: year round
Location: Predushchelnoye
 
Not far from Bakhchisaray in the green Kacha River Valley aficionados of less travelled routes would be awarded by a magnificent view of the ancient cave monastery of Kachi-Kalyon. The history carved in stone dates to the 6th- 18th centuries, times of flourishing and development of the monastery. Impressive caves and grottoes bear ancient monastic attributes: cells for monks, remnants of the necropolis, a winery with massive stone wine presses, the Anastasia Church remains, chapel with still observable cut in the stone cross and the Anastasia Spring. This cave town belongs to less studied historical sites of the Crimea. Hopefully, the research works will go ahead of the natural demolition of the place, and scientists will have what to research.

I just returned from my tour, thank you again for a wonderful job. This was my
2nd tour with Unipress, and it was even better than last year. I saw
everything I ask to see and the guides (Vlada)and (Nataliya) were outstanding.
There is so much to see but never enough time to see it all, I hope to return
again. Also special thanks to Konstantine, who drove me to the Odessa airport
to catch my return flight to Kiev. He did everything except walk me up the
steps of the plane.
Please let Vlada and Nataliya know how much I appreciated their skills.
You are an outstanding travel agency,

thank you again,

Daniel Razo United States July 2008
