First we decided to visit Eni-Kali fortress ("A new fortress" in translation from Tatar). It was built in 1703.

July of 1700 was the year of signing the truce in Turkey's capital according to which the Sultan gave to Russia Azov lands and Moscow stopped rendering tribute to Crimean Khan. At the same time fortifications were being built to withstand the future Russian invasion.

    Nice post. The dromos is an example of a corbeled arch rather than a true arch. Hasn’t been used for a looong time. I love old forts and would like to visit this one.
