The Museum of accidents on water and the lighthouse temple, Crimea

Храм-маяк и музей катастроф на воде, Крым The lighthouse temple

Completely and correctly this place is called "Memorial complex "to the memory of those who died at sea," and it includes the Museum of accidents on water, Temple-lighthouse St. Nicholas of Myra (also called simply the Church of St. Nicholas), the area around the temple and viewing platform. In our opinion, this place is a must see, if you stay in one of the villages in these parts (S. Solnechnogorskoye, Malorechenskoye, Rybachye), and definitely worth the time spent on a trip here from Alushta.

Obviously as the name implies, the whole memorial complex dedicated to the tragic events that occurred on the water. The complex can be accessed for free, and check out the memorial plaque and the old rusty anchor in the form of exhibits. You can go inside the temple, but there is forbidden to photograph. By the way, this is the highest temple and the only lighthouse in the Crimea was built in 2004. For a small fee (included in the cost of visiting the Museum) to get us to the observation made in the form of the deck of the old ship. There are wonderful views to the village Malorechenskoye and the Black sea, you can twist the steering wheel of the old ship, to throw a coin into the treasure chest.

The most interesting are presented in the Museum, which is located at the base of the temple (in the basement), and access to pay. The exhibition consists of photos and information boards telling about the disaster, which caused the largest number of victims. You will be surprised to learn that the famous disaster of the Titanic is not the first in this list, although for him there was a place. Stories about some of the disasters are provided with models of ships and events, and a separate room devoted to the means of salvation. Rooms themselves are Museum made in the form of premises of ships, and creepy atmosphere is complemented by a "horrendous" sounds of ships in distress. At the end of the exhibition you can watch a movie with additional information about disasters. By the way, photography in the Museum is completely free, although the entrance and hang prohibiting photography signs.

Thanks for the feedback. Soon information about Alushta and the surrounding area will be renewed and will become even more. And yet, if you are looking for in these parts a place with a quiet, sparsely populated beaches, I recommend another look at Solnechnogorsk. Personally, I like it more than fishing, as something more comfortable out there, the beach is well-groomed, not as "dead" as in fishing. However if you on your car and tent in Solnechnogorskoye no normal camping as in fishing. And not to be confused with solnechnogorskaya Ulitsa. These villages are near, almost merged into one, but the beachfront in Malorechenskoye very tiny. This is my IMHO, of course, just recommend. ...
