Pictures of Sevastopol, Crimea


Sevastopol is among the top three tourist destinations in Crimea and provides an authentic taste of classic imperial Russia within modern-day Ukraine. The city was established as a military base and port and preserves those functions to this day. Sevastopol has seen a lot of battles, and numerous war memorials attrack history buffs from all over Europe.

Russia's Black Sea fleet is stationed in Sevastopol, which is a source of some friction between the countries. Most citizens have strong ties to Russia and consider themselves Russians. The level of education and cultural awareness in the city seems quite high, and the presence of water and imperial-era buildings likens it to St. Petersburg. The city is experiencing rapid economic development and has the potential to become a major center of trade and commerce.

Sevastopol is the final train stop for trains from Kiev, St. Petersburg, Moscow, and other cities in Ukraine and western Russia.
