“A different side of the Crimea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

We stopped off and visited here on our way back to Simferopol to catch a train. Very nice palace and not too big either to get around so you are not exhausted in the sunshine. Better with a guide I would think, otherwise there's not much explanation to what it is all about.

“A bit commercialized”

We made the effort to go to Bakhchisary for our last day & night in Ukraine. Historically it is interesting but the palace & grounds are too well troden for my taste.

“Must to see sightseeing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

This is very unique sightseeing which is 20 min driving from Sevastopol. Very properly renovated old city where you can spend around 2-3 hours .I recommend you to try eating "Cigborek" which is very famous and you can find almost everywhere .

“Diverse place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2011

I was here as part of a ship's tour on a Black Sea cruise and the drive out to see it was a nice change from the usual local/near the port shorex.

The building and grounds are very lovely. The tiles and mosiacs have been maintained very well and you really do get the feeling of how it was like to live there.

The town is still very Tartar. The local restaurants have low tables and benches instead of tables and chairs and many of the shops have lovely crafts and artwork far above the level of the usual touristy stuff.

** Be sure to have Ukrainian money to buy small stuff - most of the local shops do not take euros or $US.
