Chelter-Koba is a unique monastery situated in one of the Crimean rocks. Let’s have a look how people live there in the 21st century.
Beginning of the climbing.
Such beautiful rocks are left behind.
After several hundreds of meters the clearing changes with narrow path surrounded by shrubs.
The path is not the easiest to climb, but at the top you’ll find a marvellous rock monastery. It was found in the 8-9 centuries and had existed till the Turkish army captured the Crimea in 1475.
