Pictures of Bakhchisaray, Crimea


The Bakhchisaray region has one of the highest concentrations of historical sites of all of Crimea. Bakhchisaray is an ancient town half-way between Simferopol and Sevastopol and has a train station, making it accessible from any city in Ukraine (or Russia, etc.) that has a train connection to Sevastopol.

Bakhchisaray's old town has a palace (see below) and several ancient Muslim mosques. Nearby is an ancient cliff monastery and one of Crimea's best-preserved "cave towns" (see below). Bakhchisaray is also a starting-off point for hikers and mountain bikers and has a large tourist lodge ("turbaza") next to the old town. I do not know of any hotels or private inns in Bakhchisaray, but maybe I just haven't seen them.

The area around Bakhchisaray includes many scenic canyon and a number of ancient towns and fortresses on the hilltops.
