    My Favorite Roof and Beach!!  Izumrud

    Izumrud (that means emerald) is a small hotel on the black sea shore. It'll take you about 30 minutes to get there from Sevastopol. I've been visiting this place every summer since the age of 5)) And to tell you the truth, the houses and rooms of this small and cosy hotel hasn't seen much reconstruction since 1990))
