We are in the largest Crimean fridge built and put into service back in May 1928.

It’s the quitest place in the Sevastopol bay, in the very centre of the city. The place if often called “a tsar’s pier”, Nikolay II came here with his family to pray in a little local church.

But let’s go back to the unusual building. It’s not so big but during the war it was one of the most powerful in the country. Its capacity was 15 thousand centners of various cargoes.

    This is better called a warehouse instead of a refrigerator.

    I think ‘ice house’ is a better description. River ice is moved into the basement in winter. The building stays cold all year round.
