    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))

    Genoese Fortress

    You want everybody to see it, to come close to their walls of rough gray lime-stone, to go through the gates protected by two powerful towers, to see the empty hill which hides the ruins of beautiful trade and handicraft city, to come up to the Consul Castle and than by steep path go up to the Krepostnaya Mountain to the lonely Dozornaya tower (it is also called Devichya covered with romantic legends).
