Begin your exciting tour of Sevastopol: the strategic important naval point of Russia and Ukraine. There are hundreds of monuments and plaques in various parts of Sevastopol commemorating its military past.

You will have a photo stop at the 40 meter-high monument dedicated to the solders of the World War II. From the observation platform you will also see the entrance to Sevastopol harbour.

Then drive to Panorama Museum. Panorama is a historical museum, which was opened in 1905 on the 50-th anniversary of the defense of Sevastopol in the Crimean War. The museum houses a magnificent (115 meters long, 14 meters high) canvas by the famous Russian battle artist F. Roubaud, and is the best example of the national art of panoramic painting. The picture depicts the first main assault of Sevastopol on the 18th of June 1855.

Drive to the 35 Coastal Artillery Battery, also known as Maxim Gorky Second Battery, a huge fortress with a lot of underground rooms, breastworks and war tunnels.  Now this battery lies in ruins and houses a museum of military glory in one of its newly restored wings.
