In early summer this year, I’m decided to have two weeks vacation on the South coast of Crimea. In Crimea are still low prices, i will place approximate dollar price in brackets, but you need to discuss this prices especially with taxi drivers and excursion managers.
I landed at the Simferopol airport and get taxi to the Alushta(~30$) where I rent apartments near the center (~40$ per day).
Alushta is a small town but i like beaches near it, they are big and wonderful, also we’re lucky with the weather.
But there are not only beaches in Alushta, also you can go to the old town and found some interesting architecture places and nature views.
In the center located ancients ruins of the old tower (Brief Alushta history). Also permanently you can see a Demerdzhi mountain, which is one of the mosth highest mountanins in the Crimea. Note the air freshness, it’s because Alushta is located near mountains, and permanently has air circulation between mountains and Black sea. The best way to navigate through Alushta is trolley bus, it’s cheap (~$0.10) and vintage.
