"Dzhanhul" Tract

Natural object

CRIMEA IS UKRAINE!

The Dzhanhul tract is a picturesque rock formation that stretches for 5 kilometers along the northwestern coast of Cape Tarkhankut.

The relief of the coast with clusters of characteristic layered rock chaos is formed by landslides, a large number of bizarre limestone figures are created by weathering and abrasion.

The largest landslide massif of Dzhanhul is located near Ternivska Balka: its length is about 500 meters, width - 200 meters. Cormorants, pelicans, starlings, partridges, flycatchers, nightingales and other birds nest among the stones, in the niches and crevices of the rocks.

The ruins of the ancient Greek customs house have been preserved in the Velykiy Kastel (Big Kastel) bay.

Since 1980, Dzhanhul has been a protected landscape reserve of local importance. In 2010, it became part of the "Charivna Havan" (Magic Harbor) nature park.

Its cozy terraces are popular among lovers of secluded relaxation in the company of nature.

Aluston Fortress

Castle / fortress

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Defense structures of the Aluston fortress, built on the shore of a convenient bay by the Byzantines in the 6th century by order of the Byzantine emperor Yustynian I.

The Goth garrison controlled the sea trade route from here and monitored order in the surroundings.

In the 10th century, the fortress was destroyed, but in 1382 it was restored by the Genoese, who bought these lands from the Crimean Khan. The fortification in the shape of an irregular quadrangle consisted of a citadel and three towers that protected the city from the most accessible eastern side. Most of the structures were destroyed by the attack of the Turkish fleet in 1475, but some fragments can still be seen.

A round (Genoese) tower with a height of 16 meters closed the defensive line from the south (it is located on the 15th Kvitnya Street). In the center of the north-eastern defensive line was the Square Tower (3 Volodarskoho Street). The third hexagonal tower has not survived.

Parts of the defensive walls are now used as a basis for nondescript modern buildings. Yuhar Dzhami mosque (XIX century) has been restored on the territory of the fortress.

Arabat Fortress

Castle / fortress

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

The ruins of the Turkish fortress Arabat, which gave its name to the entire Arabat arrow, are located near the spit on the Crimean side, next to the salt industry.

The name translates as "suburb".

The Arabat Fortress was built on a narrow sandy strip between the Arabat Bay and Sivash after the Turks invaded the Crimean Peninsula in 1475. It is mentioned for the first time in the 17th century. There was a moat in front of the fortress walls, and an earthen rampart behind it. The serfs with five bastions and fortress walls had several rows of loopholes in which guns of different power were installed, which made it possible to maintain a circular defense.

In 1771, during the Russian-Turkish war, it was stormed by Russian troops. The fortification retained its strategic importance for a long time - it was used during the Crimean campaign, the Soviet-Ukrainian war, and the Second World War.

Ayu-Dag Mount

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Mount Ayu-Dag, which protrudes into the sea between Pertenit and Hurzuf, is the most famous relief of Crimea.

This 577-meter-high extinct volcano was formed about 150 million years ago by the injection of magma into faults in the earth's crust.

The name Ayu-Dag is translated from Turkic as "Bear-Mountain", which is explained by the characteristic shape that resembles the back of a bear that has lowered its head into the water. According to legend, Allah turned into a mountain the Great Bear-Avenger, who refused to destroy the settlement of unruly jinn in the Partenite Valley.

The top and slopes of Mount Ayu-Dag are covered with deciduous forest, foxes, badgers, stone martens, hedgehogs, hares, squirrels, and bats are found here. The ruins of medieval buildings have been preserved, which testify to the existence of a fortified settlement.

At present, Mount Ayu-Dag is a landscape reserve, excursions are conducted with visits to archaeological monuments.

Belyaus Hillfort

Archaeological site

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

The ruins of the ancient settlement of Belyaus are located on the seashore near the western end of the Donuzlav Pass, near the village of Znamyanske.

The fortified Greek settlement of Belaus arose here in the second half of the 4th century BC. The main fortification element was a powerful multi-story tower, the impressive ruins of which have survived to this day. After several Scythian attacks, the base of the tower was strengthened with an additional anti-ram belt. The belt, made of huge blocks, was about 5 meters high and gave the building the appearance of a pyramid. Inside the tower, a well was preserved, as well as a large grain pit with the remains of wheat, millet and rye.

In addition, the foundations of economic, residential and religious complexes were discovered, in particular, a sanctuary dedicated to the cult of the dolphin, which has no analogues in the Northern Black Sea region.

In Late Antiquity, the Scythians lived here, then, until the 10th century, the Khazars.

Archaeological research is being conducted.

Cape Kapchyk

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Cape Kapchyk is the most memorable element of the Novyi Svit landscape. Behind it, the pointed peak of Mount Khoba-Kaya, separated from Kapchyk by the Blue Bay, can be seen.

From Novyi Svit, you can take a path to the rocky slope of Cape Kapchyk. There is a 77-meter-long Through Grotto that pierces the cape, leading to the impassable area of the Blue Bay. Unlike many Crimean caves, underground water did not participate in the formation of the Through Cave. The deep cracks and the wedge-shaped profile of the cave suggest that the high underground gallery appeared as a result of uneven movement of Cape Kapchyk limestone along several faults.
