Kobalar Waterfall

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

The Kobalar stream flows through the Kobalar-Dere stream and flows into Nizhne Lake in the northern part of the Baydary valley.

Water falls from a height of about 14 meters to a small clear lake, creating a water curtain under the rock.

The Kobalar waterfall (Kozyrok) belongs to the so-called ephemeral waterfalls. You can admire the amazing sight of the rapidly falling stream only in spring and winter. In summer, both the stream and the waterfall are usually exhausted. Their occurrence is associated with the rapid melting of snow on the mountains.

The Kobalar waterfall is known among tourists under the name Kozyrok. This name was given to it by the unusual shape of the ledge from which the water falls. As for the toponym "Kobalar", the name of the stream translated from Turkic means "cave ravine", which is true.

The Kozyrok waterfall is almost unknown among vacationers on the Southern coast of Crimea, but it is popular among residents of Baydary Valley and Sevastopol. There is a rest area with indoor tables. Visiting the waterfall is paid.

Kok-Asan Canyon

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

The picturesque Kok-Asan canyon is formed by the Kuchuk-Karasu River (Mala Chorna) and its tributaries.

The gorge is narrow and rocky in places. Mountain streams form four significant waterfalls and "baths of youth" (small lakes with clean water at a temperature of 8-10 degrees). The upper waterfall "Russian Hills" is especially grandiose, where water flows in zigzags from a height of 20 meters.

You need to make your way to the baths and waterfalls both on dry paths and on water.

Kutlak Fortress

Archaeological site

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

The ruins of the ancient Kutlak fortress, also known as the Asandra or Afineon fortress, are located on the western edge of Mount Karaul-Oba, which has the appearance of a high promontory with steep slopes above the Kutlak Bay.

The fortification was built in the 1st century BC by the Bosporan king Asander, the son of Mithridates VI Eupator. It was probably the westernmost outpost of the Bosporan kingdom, which controlled the surrounding Tauro-Scythians and opposed sea piracy of the barbarians.

The pentagonal fortress with an area of 0.25 hectares had rectangular towers at the corners, and the northwestern tower was three-walled, and the eastern, the largest (10.7 by 8.25 meters) - two-chambered. The garrison, numbering about 100 people, was housed in barracks along the northeastern and southeastern curtains. The fortress had its own forge.

About 500 stone cores for slings and throwing machines, large iron arrowheads, axes and ceramics stand out among the archaeological finds.

Landscape and recreation park "Atlesh" is a very picturesque rocky seashore in the southeastern part of Cape Tarkhankut.

The height of the rocks here reaches 30-40 meters, the coast is full of various bays and grottoes.

Cape Velykiy Atlesh (Big Atlesh) is a forty-meter arch with caves to which steps cut into the rock lead. Here is a fishing enterprise, which is now being repurposed into a modern diving center.

Cape Maliy Atlesh (Small Atlesh) is pierced by a through tunnel almost 100 meters long. Enthusiasts have created an underwater museum of Soviet sculpture "Alley of Leaders" here.

A little further away is the natural pool "Chasha kokhannya" (Cup of Love) - a popular swimming spot.

Due to the easy descent to the sea, there is the largest concentration of "savages" tents here, which in the high season fill the entire coast of the cape.

Thanks to the stunning "photogenic" terrain, Atlesh has repeatedly become a filming location - the films "Amphibian Man", "Pirates of the 20th Century", "People and Dolphins" and others were shot here.

A memorial sign has been installed on the shore in honor of the underwater house-laboratory "Ichthyandr-66", in which the Donetsk aquanauts from the Scorpena club lived and conducted experiments in 1966.

Mount Ai-Petri

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Mount Ai-Petri is a mountain peak of the Ai-Petri mountain range, the most famous Crimean mountain (1234 meters), the territory of the Yalta Mining and Forest Reserve.

It rises above Alupka and Koreiz. The white teeth that form the unique silhouette of Mount Ai-Petri consist of four large (12-15 meters high) and a number of small vertical peaks that were formed during the weathering of heterogeneous reef limestones.

Until the 15th century, the Byzantine church of Saint Peter, from which the name comes, was located on the top of Ai-Petri mountain.

A high-altitude weather station, founded in 1895, is located here, as well as the Ai-Petri meridian - a metal globe on a granite base.

The viewing platforms offer the largest panorama of the Black Sea coast of Yalta.

Tourists arriving on the mountain are served by a semi-legal business: excursions to the "Yaltynska" and "Tryochochka" caves, horseback riding, and teahouses with Tatar cuisine. Skiing infrastructure is being developed.

The cable car "Mishor - Ai-Petri" with the longest unsupported span in Europe was built on Ai-Petri. A road with a steep serpentine leads from Yalta, further to Bakhchysarai.

Mount Cat

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

One of the most characteristic and picturesque landscape sights of Crimea is a mountain that resembles a silhouette of a cat ready to jump.

It is located between Simeiz and Katsiveli, on the territory of the Simeiz-Alupka amphitheater-like forest landscape. The name comes from the Tatar Kosh-kai - Falcon Mountain. This large limestone massif with a height of 254 meters was formed about a million years ago, breaking away from the Yalin ridge of the Main Crimean Ridge and gradually moving down the slope to the sea.

In ancient times, this natural barrier that separated the South Bank was supplemented in gaps by a stone wall. On the plateau of Mount Cat, the remains of the Tavr settlement Limen-Isar (VIII-I centuries BC) with fragments of buildings and defensive walls, as well as a large necropolis consisting of a hundred dolmen tombs (so-called "Tavr boxes"), were discovered.

In the 1960s, the South Coast Highway was built through the ridge of Mount Cat, which changed the natural landscape. The accumulation of stones to the southwest of the mountain is closed by the picturesque Krylo Lebeda rock, which is popular with climbers.

Mount Kastel

Natural object

CRIMEA - IS UKRAINE!

Mount Kastel, 439 meters high, is located on the southern outskirts of Alushta, behind Professor's Corner.

The dome is covered with a forest canopy, but chaos has formed on the eastern slope of the mountain - stone blocks, sometimes reaching 3-5 meters in diameter.

The name is related to the fact that in ancient times there was a fortress (Greek - "kastel") on the top of the mountain, the remains of which have been preserved on the slopes.

According to legend, this fortress served as the last refuge of Queen Feodora, the ruler of ancient Sugdaya. After the capture of the capital of the principality by the Genoese, Feodora hid in Castel, where she, devoted to her brother, died in a battle with enemies.
