The Grafskaja Quay (Sevastopol)

The Grafskaja Quay (a wharf or reinforced bank where ships are loaded and unloaded) is in the center of the city, on the southern part of the Sevastopol Bay. In June 1783, it was created from masonry stones under the license of D. Seniavin. In 1787 with the arrival Ekaterina II, the quay was equipped with modern amenities and was officially name Ekateriniskaia.

In 1787 with the arrival Ekaterina II, the quay was equipped with modern amenities and was officially name Ekateriniskaia. Later the name was changed to Earling after the Earl M.I. Voinovich, a commander of a Sevastopol squadron who would dock his ship at the quay.

In 1837, under the guidance of M.P. Lazarev D. Upton, a project for a new quay which was fully carried out with a wooden structure and a wide granite ladder. Two shifts ran per day to create the quay. The captain created a stone tower for sentries. Columns where erected with white marble engraved memorials.

The quay forms a beautiful greeting to the city and is a major architectural structure of the central part. Next to the Grafskaja Quay you can find a lot of people (travel agencies) who would offer you a short trip by a ship. But a nice and cheap way to travel is a public ship that locals use to go from one side of the bay to other. You can also find there a lot of little souvenirs.
