So cool

Really amazing site; just wish i brought lunch and a swimsuit so I could swim by the ruins. Signs are not useful if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian but still very worth it.

My guide took me here and had some interesting stories to tell. Check out some of the pottery and mosaic remains on display - very nice! There're some active archaeology projects going on and I was lucky to hear a bit of the description by overhearing a tour guide for a group describing some findings. The main site is easy... More

Its like a piece of Greece; old ruins. There is a big church, stand out on the hill. Breath taken during sunset. Unfortunately very dirty. Sad that locals do not appreciate their heritage. Lots of garbage and broken glass. Make sure you wear closed shoes. Worth to see.

Not the most impressive ruins you will see and the museum didn't have much to offer but scenic nevertheless.

great place to swim as long as the corrupt govt. does not try to take it over and make a theme park out of it.

Basic russian fluency gets you around, the busses as transport are ideal. If not taxis are cheap. Research the site, read a good guide before the trip, if you can't join a russian spoken tour. Bring swim suits, very clean pebble beach, great for snorkling.

You enter this site near the Greek amphitheater, pass the ancient ruins, see the Roman ruins, navigate the medieval period, and enjoy the 21C rebuilt Cathedral. Not the biggest "wow factor" attraction but beautiful, interesting, and serene. There were hundreds of visitors but the site is large and you often feel alone, absorbed in the past. Bring water etc, there... More
