Sevastopol City in Early 1970s

Posted on April 11, 2017 by tim


Sevastopol is a city in Crimea. Was stormed by British and French during siege of Sevastopol in 1854. Was a bombed by nazis during WW2. Was a navy base during USSR. Stayed as a Russian naval base in 1990s after USSR collapsed. Was declared to be a Russian city by Russian parliament in 1993. Parliament got bombed by Yeltsin, the decision had to be taken back (for the first time in history). No matter of it’s rich history was pretty calm and nice city in 1970s. Let’s see some postcards of the city at that time:

Revolution square. It’s fun that “squares” were often “rounds” in Soviet cities.

Monument to famous Russian admiral Nakhimov.

Sevastopol city hill.

“New” residential areas in 1970s.

Lenin’s monument.

NAVY sailors club.

A World War 2 monument on Sapun mountain in Sevastopol.

Ancient Hersones.

A panoramic museum of Sevastopol siege of 1854.

Another war memorial

Museum of the Russian Black Sea fleet.

This is how Sevastopol looked in 1970s. How it looks now, not very clear as rare reports come from there now again.

    Will be nice to visit it again, once it is freed from Russian invader and again part of Mother Ukraine…

      You’ll better hurry up with that, guys. Ukraine keeps fading away, so a horrible end might be better than horror without any ending.

    • Ball Breaker says:

      Better pack now, “Alain”. “Mother Ukraine” is in the worst shape ever. And it will be worse because the EU denied Ukraine that promised membership. The same one that started all this disaster.
      Enjoy!
