This tour proposes the visit to one of the most interesting places Bakhchisarai. At one time Bakhchisarai was the capital of the Crimean Khanate. The khan's palace still stands in the city, and now houses the Museum of History. The complex includes the khan's palace and suites, the state council and court room, the harem, mosques and mausoleum. In the north-east corner of the so-called Fountain Courtyard stands a fountain with the exotic name of « Fountain of Tears » . It was built in 1764 by order of Khan Krym-Girey in memory of his favourite wife. Many legends are connected with this fountain. Some of them served as the theme of the long poem « The Fountain of Bakhchisarai » by Alexander Pushkin.

This tour continues with the visit to the Uspensky Cathedral, which is part of Uspensky cave monastery. This acting monastery was founded at the turn of the 8th and the 9th centuries and was the residence of the Metropolitan of the Russian Orthodox Church during the Crimean Khanate. The ancient cave church of the monastery and the monk's cells are hewn in the rock, just as all household premises were in medieval Crimean cities.
