Sevastopol

Situated just above the southwestern tip of the Crimean peninsula, on the shores of a natural harbour, is Sevastopol, a treasure-house of historic monuments.

You will marvel at the circular panorama painted by Roubaud of Munich, depicting the defense of Sevastopol in the Crimean War and the Cathedral of St. Peter & St. Paul, built in 1844 whose classical facade resembles the Theseion of Athens. Any exploration of the city will not be complete without visiting Malakhov Hill with its restored fortifications and the Eternal Flame in honour of Russian and Soviet naval heroes. The city has a great military and naval history and people of Sevastopol are very proud of having been accorded the title of " Hero City" in recognition of their valiant stand against the Nazis during World War II.

Two miles from Sevastopol, the State Historical and Archaeology Museum of Chersonesus houses the heritage of a civilization 2,500 years old. Relics of the ancient Greek city are displayed in two sections and several halls of the Archaeology Museum.

Among the numerous other attractions is Balaklava, scene of long and bitter clashes in the 1854-55 Crimean War, which is located only 10 miles south of Sevastopol. Halfway to Balaclava is a former monastery and rather forbidding seashore cliffs. Here, on the Feolent Cliff, mythology has placed the Temple of Artemis. It was to this spot that the goddess brought Iphigenia to save her from being sacrificed by her loyal father, Agamemnon. This is the setting of Euripides' tragedy "Iphigenia in Tauris".Translated from Greek, Sevastopol means "majestic city", and it has well earned its name.
