Well..Stas. It’s hard to give you advice on travel cos You did’t tell where are you traveling from. But anyway you‘ll probably go through Kiev. So my suggestion would be to take a train to Semfiropol from there you can take a marshrutka – taxi which will take you to any part of Crimea. Here is a few cities that I’d recommend: Yalta, Faros, Simeis, Gurzyf……
Accommodation is also easy. There is people on the bus station who hunting for customers. They rent their houses/ apartments for a summer season.
Also, mostly on the beach, people offering any kind of tours. It’s nothing dodgy about it in the and you will get what you paid for. When I was in Yalta last time, I took a horse ride in the mountains and that was really cool. Even tho I’ve never ride a horse before.
There is a lot of thing to see and places to visit in Crimea. I’m sure if you go there you want regret it!
Good luck!

Do not waste your time for Simferopol, Kerch, Jankoj. It;s better to stay in Yalta, Akushta, Alupka, Livadia😊 Reply to this

the best sea in Cremea is near Mis Tarhankut , it's about 100 km from Evpatoriya.
There are not many places for entertainment, but it's perfect for sea-lovers, divers and surfing also for family group who prefer thetotal relax far from the noisy bustle!
Accommodation prices not so expensive like in Yalta, Akushta, Alupka, Livadia etc... Reply to this

2 ways to reach Crimea:

Way #1. Flight to Kiev. Than from Kiev there are regular overnight trains to Simferopol. Simferopol is the capital of Crimean Autnomous Repuiblic. There are regular buses from Simferopol railway station to Yalta, Sevastopol, Evpatoria, Feodosia etc.

Way #2. Flight to Odessa. Than from Odessa there are regular overnight trains to Simferopol. Simferopol is the capital of Crimean Autnomous Repuiblic. There are regular buses from Simferopol railway station to Yalta, Sevastopol, Evpatoria, Feodosia etc.

One small problem railway tickets have to be bought at least 15 - 30 days before travelling because in summer there are many tourists and trains are overloaded.

Places which are worth of visiting in Crimea: Alushta, Alupka, Yalta, Sevastopol, Kerch, Bachchisarai.

I can give some advices for people who are going travel Crimea.
1. It's much cheaper and more safe to travel with a company (friends).
2. The closer You are to the destination point - the cheaper and better accommodation offers possible to find.
3. When You take a taxi - ask Your Russian speaking friend to negotiate the rate (first and final rate for transfer can vary up to several times).
4. Places to visit: Yalta (zoo, botanic garden and Massandra vinery), Simeiz (very clear seawater), Gurzuf, Mishor (visit I'Petri mountain) and Noviy Svet (small hidden paradise on the Crimean coast).
5. Accommodation in Crimea is not too expencive (high rates only in July and August), so to see the most of sightseens it will take aprox. 10 days. Reply to this

I can advise the most ropular sights around Yalta town.

Livadia palace
1. Bus 32 (bus station near cloth market, not far from Lenin monument) to Alupka palace and garden. Ask driver for Livadia stop.
2. Bus 11 goes through the center, look for sign “Ливадия дворец” on it.
After visiting the Palace you can go to the Sun Path (or Tzar’s Path) – Солнечная тропа, Царская тропа – which starts near the palace (where sun dial is).
From Livadia buses regularly go to Yalta, especially from the lower gates.

Alupka palace
Bus 32 goes from the center of Yalta (bus station near cloth market, not far from Lenin monument) to Alupka palace and garden. On the way you can visit Livadia palace, Swallow’s Nest castle, cable car to Ay-Petri mountain (warm clothes are needed). Ask driver for the stops, he usually forgets them.

Massandra palace
Start at bus stop opposite Sovetskaya square, you need any bus going to Massandra, Nikita or trolleybus 2, ask to stop at “povorot na dvoretz”. Then cross the main road, go along the smaller road, see steps on your left, go through forest along the path (5 minutes), then you are again on the road, follow it and soon you’ll see the palace.

Boat trip to Swallow’s Nest castle.
From the corner of Morskaya street and Promenade, where little church is, go downstairs, and near the church you’ll find ticket office. Trip takes 1,5 hours, return to the same place.

Nikita botanical garden
Bus goes from the center of Yalta (bus station near cloth market, not far from Lenin monument) to the main gates of Nikita botanical garden. Way back: 1. by the same bus, wait for it near the lower gates. 2. Descend to the seashore, buy a boat ticket to Yalta – it goes directly to Promenade.

In Yalta itself:
Promenade.
Ekaterininskaya street (perpendicular to Promenade, starts near ship-restaurant) with old buildings of Crimean limestone with wooden decorations.
Pushkina street starts a bit further to Oreanda hotel direction, goes along the small river.
Primorsky park has several fountains, nice pier with view on Yalta bay, Black Sea water pool, tennis courts.
Churches: Alexander Nevsky on Morskaya bus stop. Armenian church on Sadovaya str. (from Sovetskaya square go upwards near Saturn cinema). Joann Zlatoust church on Polikurov hill (go up from Lenin monument). Chirch in Massandra park near Yalta hotel. Reply to this
