Now...this was the first time i actually saw a panorama of this scale. A sight to see and get mesmarised by the detail and beauty of it. It explains the siege if sevastopol in a story as it unfolds and one can actually imagine it happening in front of you.A master piece and wonderfull memory to carry with you.

Awesome exposition, but guide was very annoying. She forgot some dates, change names, but if you can read some information inside you will be happy. That's awesome place! I strongly recommend to visit this panorama. Nowadays it costs RUR 160 (adult), RUR 80 (kids).

What an amazing museum/painting. Nothing like it! You climb the stairs and end up surrounded by the battle. Never experienced anything like it before, truly unique. The gardens then beckoned and the waterfront with the gun emplacements. It is like re-living the story and being immersed in history. You cannot help but marvel at the work that has gone into...

We've seen several diaramas, historical tapestries and countless paintings, but this is all three in one. All of the Trip Advisor reviews are spot-on and it's not to be missed.

Painted between 1902 and 1904 this massive, detailed and lifelike work depicts the siege on Sevastopol by the French and British on the Malakhov Battery June 6, 1855 as viewed behind the Russian lines. There are many actual items in the foreground that blend into the painting as you look into the distance. It is difficult to discern where the... More

Couldn't believe my eyes when we got to the top of the stairs. It has been done so well.The combination of props in the foreground blending into the 3D painting is absolutely incredible. You can well imagine being there. Very very enjoyable!

Our cruise of the Black Sea included a trip to Sevastopol and a visit to the panorama museum depicting the siege of Sevastopol and the battle of Malakhov Hill in the Crimean War. It was unlike anything that we had ever seen before. it was so lifelike that you felt the soldiers could walk off the field and into the... More

This was part of a shore excursion on a Black Sea cruise, and it was incredible. Go upstairs and you get an incredible panoramic overview. Downstairs look through the windows and it is all so real at ground level. This was the most memorable experience in a 12 day Black Sea cruise and included in the cost, but I believe... More
