It was pretty well done, an interesting place. Husband enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed him enjoying it. It was no doubt better for those with a good guide.

A new stop on the Black Sea cruises allows a visit to the Panorama of the Battle of Sevastopol Crimean War. 360 degree action. Papier mache merges with 2 dimensional painting of the Battle. View from 2 levels. Hard to see where the 3 dimensional blends in with the 2 dimensional. Worthy of a stop.

Even if you are not a history buff, it is fascinating to see the submarine pens. What a clever way to hide from your enemies. As the years went by this underground sanctuary was even a bomb shelter should an atomic explosion occur. This shipyard area is currently used by both the Ukrainian and the Russian navies. There is a... More

i agree with other Tripadvisor reviewers that the best part of touring here is the sense of being in a city that was closed and hidden from much of the world under Soviet control until recently. In fact, it is not so overwhelming as the US Navy shipyards in Norfolk, VA. for example, but seeing a Russian submarine in dry... More

This was my first visit to Sevastopol in October 2010, and on a cool overcast day we took a tour of the harbour and had a bird's eye view of the many Russian warships still stationed here. Most interesting for me was that during Soviet times this was a closed city, and unless you lived here or were part of... More

Just a harbor with russian rusty ships. Nothing fascinating. And there is no a shipyard, just a couple of dry docks. What they call the shipyard here is a pier where touristic boats and ferry moor.

During the cold war, Russia built a secret submarine repair facility which is now open for tours. It is built into the side of a hill with channels and drydocks many of which can be accessed on concrete walkways. There is also a small museum about the Crimean war. This is a fascinating addition to the usual museums and churches.... More
