Mobile communications in the Crimea is billed as domestic roaming (not international), so no need to buy SIM card from local operators on arrival. In addition, while in the Crimea are sold SIM cards the only Russian operator MTS. To save, it is best to have your cellular provider to enable options to reduce the cost of roaming in Russia like "Everywhere as houses" from MTS.

Unfortunately, the special options are not all operators operate on the territory of Crimea. At the time of writing (April 2016) on the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol is effective only special option "Everywhere as houses" from MTS, and other operators to offer roaming only. This means that incoming calls are also charged, and outgoing calls will not be cheap. So today is the best operator to travel with your home SIM card in the Crimean MTS.

The situation is constantly changing, and possibly other operators will also include the Crimea and Simferopol in your area, special options, and yet carefully read the description of the special options and rates.

Mobile Internet 2G and 3G is present almost everywhere, but works very poorly, and in some cities not at all. For example, in June 2015 for a 5 day stay in Yalta, the authors did not manage even once to access the mobile Internet, while in the suburbs of Yalta (big Yalta) it somehow worked. 4G has only started to develop in early 2015 with local operator K-Telecom. Don't forget that the difficult terrain here makes it difficult to work cell, and not everywhere there is a signal of good quality.

As for the cost and tariffs, with the mobile Internet all the while a voice which is similar to the hundredth. So far, the most profitable operator – MTS with their options of the Internet throughout Russia, and they include the territory of Crimea and Simferopol. Other operators are billed Internet traffic in roaming, and is very easy to "fly" into debt, it is the megabyte (and it viewing one or two pages) costs 2 rubles.

As for Wi-fi Internet, it is available for free in almost all hotels and guesthouses. To check availability in a particular hotel in the hotels before booking.

Don't know the sea only in the Crimea rested, all was well, no "this" relationship did not notice) If you give us more details something he wrote, his story, then I would know your attitude and the big question remains) :? Plus, again, it all depends on your queries, who likes the "lazy" holiday, I like to lie in the sun on the beach for a week and sunning and, of course, if to Sevastopol to come for that purpose only, then there is nothing to do a week) With such queries then it really is better to Turkey or Egypt where all inclusive. And "All inclusive" usually the children are not interested, like to lie on the beach a week, is, as a rule, have their tired parents who just "sick" at work and want to just sit on the beach and in cafes in the evening, and the kids need activity, Hiking, mountains, etc.) and the Crimea, particularly around Sevastopol, unable to provide this opportunity. ...

image.jpegDear friends , I want to share with you impressions about the rest)) Went last year with his family in early June for two weeks on Tarkhankut , the hotel "Marlin" I really liked it. Prices are low, the sea is warm. Free big beach with white sand and gradual slope for children, people on the beach a little. Ate in the hotel restaurant , the portions are large , food is delicious and inexpensive. For Tarhankuta traveled by car , steep cliffs 40 metres high , is the bomb! I was diving with an aqualung, my son was learning to windsurf. Booked the hotel boat excursion along the coast , very much)))) To the sea 15 minutes on foot, by car 3 minutes , you can put direct on the beach. The hotel area is immersed in greenery, a swimming pool, gazebo, barbecue. We were delighted! Already booked a room for the shares in June 2017! PS. On the hotel website you can look photo: Olenevka, Marlin.Russia image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg ...

In the temple of the Sun do not get the problem, don't know about any war is a speech? You can reach the Temple of the sun both from the Laspi, more gradual rise or a Falcon, but it is recommended for those who have bad poor physical training. Was here in October. Very atmospheric place. Liked it much more than the ay-Petri plateau, although now it can be reached by car or cable car. In General, if you want to visit the places of power in the Crimea, there are simpler routes) ...
