Venues visited: Panorama Museum, St Vladimir’s Cathedral, Malakhov Hill

 

The first visit of the day is Panorama, a historical museum, which was opened on the 50th anniversary of the defence of Sevastopol in the Crimean War. The museum houses a magnificent 115 meters long by 14 meters high canvas painted by the famous Russian battle artist F. Roubaud. The picture depicts the first main assault of Sevastopol on the 18th of June 1855. The circular canvas merges into the 900 sq. m. relief model. You will rise on the observation platform in the middle of the hall and find yourself more than 150 years back on top of Malakhov Hill during one of the fiercest and decisive battles of the Crimean war.

Then you will go to the Central Hill to visit St Vladimir’s Cathedral built in 1888 and see the view of Sevastopol harbor unfolding from the hill. Continue to Malakhov Hill, a memorial complex with the White Tower Museum and monuments to heroes and events of the Crimean War.
