Took a day tour from Yalta to Sudak and Noviy Svet. They offer those tours everywhere. It is around 110 hryvnyas per person ($22). It's a 2 hrs drive in a micro bus and you will end up going with a group of about 20 people. Definitely worth going! Got to see the fortress, listen to history of Sudak and Crimea. Afterwards we were taken to Noviy...more
They say there's one of the best beaches in Crimea and surely the landscape is breathtaking... but unfortunately a bad street accident between a bus and a car didn't allow us to go to Novy Svet, 7Km west of Sudak. And after loosing around 1 hour in a queue we decided it was better to go to Feodosiya. Pity we couldn't see this place, but at least we...more
Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the Tatar restaurant where we ate in Sudak, but surely it was a good and inexpensive place where to have a good dinner.
Anyway I think it was the only Tatar restaurant just a bit inland coming from the seaside walk, there's the sine along the walk, just close a neoclassical white building.
Walking along the seaside walk and stopping at some of the many bars, pubs, restaurants and discos seems to be the best thing to do there in Sudak. You really have a big choice of places to go, but most people seem to like also just walking up and down the seaside walk.

Bus is the easiest and the cheapest way to get from Simferopol to Sudak. the bus station is conveniently located just at the corner of the railway station. (if you arrive at the airport, take either a marshrutka or a trolleybus to the railway station).after exiting the Simferopol railway station, turn left and walk toward the bus platform...more
It's hard to find something really nice to buy in Crimea as souvenir, but when I saw the mask of Lukashenko (along with Putin, Yushenko, Tymoshenko and many other famous people) I would have really liked to buy it! :)))
Unfortunately they are not for sale, but for 10 hryvnias you can wear it and someone will take a picture of you!
If you don't know how it feels to have the face of Europe's last dictator you can enjoy it! :)))
