Pictures of Sudak, Crimea
Sudak is a very popular Crimean resort on the southeast Black Sea coast. It is most easily reached from Feodosiya, which has train access from Kiev in the summer. From Feodosiya there are numerous buses and taxis that whisk you to Sudak in under an hour. There is also a longer road along the coast from Alushta if you have your own car.
Sudak has a long waterfront boardwalk with all kinds of entertainment that beats even Yalta. The resort is not as pricey as Yalta and is a favorite of students. There are a number of beaches with clean sea water in close proximity to Sudak, and many possible tour routes in the vicinity.
Sudak's principal attraction is the huge Genoan fortress on the mountain above the town (see pictures below). Most tourists also visit nearby Novvy Svet, which has an old estate with a winery, pine-covered mountains with trails, and the famous Golitsyn path hewn into the rock above the sea. Here, among other things, you can see a grotto above the sea where aristocrats and intellectuals put on plays in imperial times.
