The video tour of Crimean sights

The following video was shot in July 17-28, 2011 during a trip to Crimea in one of the most wonderful and protected places – the settlement Noviy Svet (“New World”).

Also the video has episodes of a trip to Mount Ai-Petri, mountain river in the Grand Canyon of Crimea, the cave town Chufut-Calais, cruise along the magnetic mountain, volcano Kara-Dag and its “Golden Gate”, and of course well-known and most preserved ancient fortress in Crimea – Genoese fortress.

First of all, the video focuses on those who want to go on vacation in Crimea. The author of the video is Anton Starikov.


Balaklava is a town on the southwestern coast of the Crimean peninsula. Administratively it is a part of Sevastopol city but in fact Balaklava is separated from the rest of Sevastopol by a few kilometers of undeveloped area.

Today Balaklava is a popular Crimean resort. Tourists are attracted by the town with long history and numerous monuments, spectacular cliffs and beaches.
