BAKHCHISARAY TOUR

A tour to Bakhchisaray, a former capital of the Crimea khanate, takes 5 hours. The car or a minivan should be arranged.

The town of Bakhchisaray is situated at a 40-km’s distance from Sevastopol. You will hear about the history of the Crimean khanate, deportation of the Crimean Tartars. You will stroll along the narrow streets of Bakhchisaray and visit the palace of the Crimean khans, a monument of the 16th century that keeps an air of authentic Oriental art. The khan’s harem, other rooms contain exhibits – garments, ornaments, caskets, objects of household use, 18th century armour. At the palace you will see the Fountain of Bakhchisaray versified by the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin who made a stop over in Bakhchisaray for just one day in 1820. Nearby there is a museum of the Crimean Tartar history which keeps the authentic Crimean Tartar items like maps, books, drawings, fabrics, jewelry, weapons.

Not Bakhchisaray alone, the town’s environs as well are famed for the relics of the remote past.

Over 1000 years ago the Byzantine monks who, persecuted by the supreme authorities, were seeking a refuge here, cut out sells in the rocks, hewed the steps of the Dormition monastery’s stairs…Now it’s an active orthodox cave monastery in the mountains (500 m walk uphill).

Bakhchisaray is full of cozy Tartar restaurants where you will be offered typical Tartar dishes: shashliks, chebureks, mantys and so on and so forth.

“Fountain of grief, fountain of love
Questioning your marble I have heard
Praise of a distant land
But of Maria you say not a word….”

Pushkin Alexander
