    Kerch Favorites

    Located at the bottom of the Mithridates hill stairs, this small tomb is emptied from all original frescoes and gravial artifacts, most sent to St. Petersburg I think, but copies are on display. Staff speaks no English, there is a charming young girl at the adjoining Gallery that could assist you.

    Kerch Transportation

    ... be prepared to pay up to 20 Hrv(3,5 euro) but avoid drivers that ask for more!A 20 min trip to beaches or Yenikale should not cost more than 30 (HRV). As comparison, the local minibusses will take you there, or anywhere around Kerch, for 1 Hrv (20 c.). Older driver tend to be less reasonable in pricing.

    Favorite thing: I havent seen there lots of foreigners, unless from ex-USSR...
    If you are looking for a flat at hot season there, better contact normal travel agency, then will find of you a normal flat. Otherways, if you will take a chance to pick up some flat offer from people who offering then on trainstation, you have a risk to get a flat hell knows where, in bad condition and for big money... Better of all, contact someone who knows the area, coz its still possible indeed to get a room there in hot season for 15-20 bucks.
    And, dont eat anything sold on beach!
    And, try not to pick up flat near some restorant, they are whole night very loud...

    Actually, that is very charming and warm place, much cheaper then south cost of Crimea. Maybe less beutiful, but same sea and a bit less people.

Entrance fee 20 grivnas ($4).Best website with beautidul pics you can find here

  • How to get Nikita Gardens

    Nikita Transportation

    You’d better make it from Yalta by a fixed-route taxi N34, trolley buses N2 and N3. Boats from Yalta, but the road from a mooring up to the park is rather long and tiresome. There are two roads - old (Lower) and new (Upper). Nikitski Botanical Garden is situated about 7 km. from the Yalta Sea Port (20-30 minutes by coach). Visiting of the Gardens...
