Spring at the Crimea is amazing! Especially the snow-covered trees on the mountains. If you go to the cave city of Chufut-Calais during the dull weather you will get to see the puzzling views of nature. The ruins of the cave city of Chufut-Calais are located on a plateau which rises 540 meters above sea level. It was founded by the Byzantine Empire in the VI century as a fortress. The name of the city Chufut- Calais translates as the “Jewish fortress”.
