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.

Hello to all of you at Ukraine Tours,

we are back home again and this is just to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Ukraine!!
We saw a lot, enjoyed everything and met a lot of very nice and helpful people.
Although we do not speak any Ukranian (or Russian), we managed to communicate with a lot of people.
I`m quite sure that I will visit your country again in a year or two!

Thanks to you and all the best,

Katrin, Germany
