The Crimean peninsula is like the miniature version of the whole world. This comparison is not just a figure of speech. There are not so many places on the Earth that can boast of such a rich and diverse nature.

These unique landscapes together with favorable climate allow Crimea to compete with the most popular corners of the World.

Throughout centuries the peninsula has been a part of numerous states and empires. In different times Crimea gave shelter to war like Cimmerians and Scythians, skillful Greek town planners, enterprising Genoeses and nomad Tatars. Their cultures and beliefs got mixed up and enriched each other. Seems only in Crimea archaeologists may discover ammunition left after the World War II and fragments of a clay jar made in 100 BC, cave monasteries not far from luxurious palaces. Every rock, every mountain, every patch of land has its own legend. Bear and Car Mountains, Adalar rocks, fountain in Bakhchisaray, The Black Mountain Kara Dag, mermaid from Mishor, Gikia from Chersonesus, they all have a story that may be true. Numerous historical and cultural monuments have become not only tourist attractions but important sacred places for people of different religions.
