Choban-Kule (also spelled Chaban-Kule, Choban Calais) is the ruins of a castle of the 15th century near the village of Morskoye, Sudak. The name translates as "the Shepherd's tower", but it is not the original name, which was lost. The castle tower was built by the Genoese brothers di Guasca, around settled homes, was the Church. Family di Guasca differed violent temper, and behind them the reputation of thieves. They came in open confrontation with neighboring families, the authorities did not spare the local residents and their subjects. It is therefore not surprising that the settlement did not last long, and was abandoned even before the castle was invaded by the Turks.

Today the best preserved large watch tower. Around it are scattered the remains of the walls. Unfortunately, the ruins spared neither time nor locals nor tourists, because the place is not guarded.

Watch it here except the tower is nothing special, and on inspection will take no more than fifteen minutes. Through the ruins you can climb up, climb inside the tower, but be careful. Fortress thought impregnable, and is located on the steep slopes, moving around cautiously. The top offers stunning views of the coast, you can see everything from Cape Meganom to the mountain bear (Ayu-Dag).

🚶 How to get: the Choban-Kul is located on the headland of the Tower near the road between the villages of Sea and pryvitne (Choban-Kul on the map). To get from the villages on foot during long walks. From the Sea you can walk down the beach. From Sudak can be reached by bus to Alushta or Sea. The tower is a little way from the road, but it is too obvious. From the road walk for about 30 minutes, and part of the road passes through a very steep ascent, which, though no special training is required, it may be too difficult for the elderly and children. If you go by car, you can move to a dirt road and get closer to the hill. Congress on the primer is directly opposite the "horse riding".

Hello Olga! We've done way children 5 and 7 years!!! on route 2 one-way, sat on the beach in a Fun, climbed up to the ruins of the fortress, and went back to the split in the route 2 and route 1 through the valley of Paradise and the peak of the space, but at the very top of the Guard Both climbed. For everything from car Parking next to the winery and back to her took no more than 6 hours. And it's with children, which in places had almost to pull. So all other hands, even if you go with a truce and continually admire the beauty will take no more than 8 hours. ...

I'm so sorry that wasted your time and money on a New Light. We are in Yalta rested for the same money, but much cooler. Golitsin's path is inferior to Solar and especially Botkin. The beach smells really bad. Stayed at Vintage hotel, nice hotel, can not say anything, and the place is not very. In Yalta, stayed in SPA hotel Livadiysky, for the same money, delicious Breakfast, fall asleep to the sound of the surf, the price includes SPA. Walk to the Waterfront to take a 15 minute drive and there life is in full swing, and the concert hall are always some activities on the Waterfront. Don't waste time and money in the trash. Good luck to everyone! ...

Hello Anna! You should not compare these two resorts, they just stay different. That's why you have to read the descriptions as we have on the website, not to be mistaken with a choice before the trip. You just probably wanted a more cheerful and noisy sports, lots of entertainment, as in Yalta. And New Light as the village. There's just a very different kind of holiday, around the quiet, beauty and fresh air. ...

A long time was neither here nor there. But the walleye love for more correct to say - movement. And New Light and pike beautiful visually, but in a New Light this beauty hides nothing, neither the crowd nor the house nor the street. For me the best is to leave the children with grandma in Sudak when you want silence, and to guide the foot in the direction of the New world - 2 hours only. Next summer will be there, already paid for the apartment on the website-Twill - look forward to Hiking with his wife. And, Yes, my children only sand, so the choice is obvious, without a Perch to rest not glued :roll: ...

Yalta and the New world - the resorts are very different. In Yalta action, a lot of people and bustle. We had a rest in Alushta and Yalta, trains and other places, but nothing like a New Light for yourself is not found. In General, this resort is more expensive than similar hotels in other areas of the South coast, but it's worth it. Ranging from beauty Bay and mozzevelovaya groves and ending source of fresh air - everything is unique. We at night always turned off the air conditioning and opened the Windows to breathe this healing air. Yes, a quiet, calm environment without noise of discos at night, very conducive to family recreation. And the daily walk before Breakfast along the trail Golitsyn diving from the cliffs - unforgettable. Bay with a gently sloping bottom and a gradual decrease of depth very convenient for bathing with children. Best places for a family holiday we don't know. For August already booked a hotel in a New Light. Stay there not for the first time. Very happy, though not without shortcomings of course. Looked Vintage, it is more expensive, but the area we liked the smaller. And in the New Light, the rooms that are already renovated to a very high level. repair and and furniture, and the service too. We like. ...

Questionable fun, concerts, second-rate pop foursikov the crowd of onlookers - we need those who in his city or village with this tight.
And after the big cities, especially such as Moscow - the peace and quietness of the villages of the New type Light or foros is what we need!
Although in the same nanosecond cafes-restaurants-hotels many times more than in the above foros. ...
