Chameleon Cape

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Cape Chameleon, which separates Tykha Bay from Koktebel Bay, got its name not so much because of its shape, but because of its ability to change color depending on the position of the sun, weather, lighting and season.

On modern maps, the cape is often called Tabirnyi, although there are no camps nearby. The original name of the cape is Toprak-Kaya or Toprakh-Kaya, which in Turkic means "mud rock" or "earthen rock".

Cape Chameleon has been known for a long time: its image is on many Italian sea maps of the 14th - 15th centuries, and there are descriptions of it in old Russian lotions.

Castle / fortress

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Fortifications on Mount Kastron above the entrance to Balaklava Bay were built in the 14th century the Genoese who settled here.

On the mountain was the administrative part of the Chembalo fortress - the City of Saint Nicholas (Upper City or Citadel), below was the City of Saint George surrounded by three lines of walls (Lower or Outer City), where ordinary townspeople lived.

To our time, the Chembalo fortress has survived in ruins, but the silhouette of its towers on the slopes of the fortress has become a business card of Balaklava. Restoration work is underway, and the creation of a museum is planned. Visiting is free.

The medieval fortress town of Chufut-Kale is located 3.5 kilometers east of Bakhchysarai.

Since the 13th century, taken by the Tatars after a long siege and named Kirk-Or, the city was part of the Crimean Khanate (it was the residence of the khan). In the 15th century, Karaites settled here, giving the city the name Chufut-Kale ("Jewish fortress").

Left by residents until the beginning of the 20th century. In the 20th century, Chufut-Kale became a popular tourist center. Three fortress walls with a gate and towers, the mausoleum of the daughter of the Golden Horde Khan Tokhtamysh Dzhanyke-khanym (year 1437), two Karaim kenas, the estate of the historian Avraham Firkovych, and other buildings have been preserved.

Archaeological site

CRIMEA IS UKRAINE!

The Chylter-Marmara Monastery operated from the XII-XIII to the end of the XV century, but some researchers date it to the VI-IX centuries.

Demerdzhi Mount (Ghost Valley)

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Mount Demerdzhi is a mountain massif (yayla) north of Alushta, one of the most beautiful peaks of the Crimean Mountains.

It rises 1240 meters above sea level. Translated from Crimean Tatar, Demerdzhi means "blacksmith". There is an ancient legend about an evil blacksmith who set up a giant blacksmith's furnace on the top of the "smoky" Mount Funa, where enslaved local residents worked. When the blacksmith killed the girl who came to ask him to free the captives, the mountain swallowed him along with the forge.

As a result of weathering, a unique stone chaos was formed on the top - a complex of rocks "Valley of Ghosts", consisting of stone pillars, towers, mushrooms, etc. The "Head of Catherine" rock stands out, resembling the profile of the queen. Walking and horseback excursions are held.
