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”.

In most of the guidebooks  its written that at this point, when one gazes down towards the valley, there should be a magnificent view of the valley Ashlam-Dere. But here all we see is “milk”. The fog sometimes has its ways of ruining the day.

  1. Love the new design … Also, this was a great place to visit. Of all the places in Crym, outside the beaches, I had the most fun here. The church just before this city was a treat as well.

    • F. Bunker here.

      Yeah tha new design is dynamite! And finaly there is no mor the letter “Ja” abu/sed…

      • It means that i prefer the old graphic of the site or maybe something creative that not relate to the usual, abused commonplace between Russia and Communism.

  2. It looks like a fascinating place to explore. That old road is so cool.

    I love the new design too, it’s classic.

  3. Looks like a great place to smoke some Hash in the early morning and walking or exploring in the fog. Beautiful. Is this a Real Cave here?

  4. Kind of ironic that you choose to use a sickle and hammer because in the communist days this web site would get you shot .

  5. Wow it looks so amazing in the spring time … ! I’ve been there only in summer and it looked totaly different. I’m also surprised with the view of the security guy in blue camouflage 🙂 !
