Hitchhiking to Anapa. What we liked about Anapa?
As we are based in Simferopol, our trip started from there. We initially prepared a plaque with the inscription "Anapa" and went to the track. We were lucky. Just after 15 minutes stop the cars we took a young couple and taken to the seaside, under Theodosius. After 20 minutes stop in the seaside with the wind we flew to the fork in Novorossiysk. The clock was 4 am and we decided to sleep that morning with new strength to stopit to Anapa. In hard, bloody struggle with the mosquitoes, we put up a tent and slept till half seven in the morning. The stop process was successful, and at eight-thirty we were in Budapest.
01. The view from the tent in the morning.
02. Decided to go to the market and buy something to eat. I bought the Caspian fish and went on the market. Passing by stalls with vegetables and fruit, we noticed that in the photo below. Asked. It turned out that it is a melon with pineapple flavor. Three pieces for 100, one is 50 rubles. Bought.
The taste of cucumber in pure form. Pulp centimeter, and the rest of the bone. Pineapple or, at least, melon and does not smell.
03. Anapa's embankment looks monumental. Clean, tidy, and beautiful.
04. "Russian gates" - a monument to the many Russian-Turkish wars, assaults and sieges of Anapa. ...

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.

The rest chose to 2018 in the Crimea. Long thought, in what city or village to go, which hotel or hotel to choose, read many reviews, listened to the advice of friends and decided to stay at a wonderful place called the Utes at the hotel Santa Barbara 3**. I want to say, previously vacationing abroad - Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Spain, in the Crimea, in Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf, traveled on tours the whole of Crimea, but such a heavenly place not seen anywhere else. The village itself attracts with its beauty and atypical. The Utes near Alushta, in my opinion, even, is the town of Alushta to Yalta 30 minutes, i.e. convenient location, You will be able to get in the direction of Alushta is very fast, and in the direction of Yalta. A tiny village located on the mountain attracts with its coziness, little Italy. Who would have thought that in Crimea exists???)))
Regarding, hotels and accommodation. Very responsive, friendly and welcoming staff. Feel every day care of yourself! We lived in a room with a sea view. Every day you Wake up with the sea, fall asleep with the sea! Fantastic! The hotel called Santa Barbara 3**, one of the most famous hotels of the Cliff, the village itself is often called Santa Barbara. The hotel itself is located right on the waterfront, i.e. out of the hotel and here's the sea, the beach! The room has everything you need. Pleased with daily maid service, change of linen and towels every three days! At the front Desk administrators will always help, prompt, advise and not least important, will give You their smiles and warmth. We had two meals - Breakfast and lunch. Breakfast and lunch we had at the restaurant Santa Barbara over the sea, the restaurant is right on ...

Thank you for such detailed advice - I think they can be useful to many.
I saw there you mentioned the Marble cave. Awesome place, if anyone interested in caves or just not mind to wander through the cave and admire the beauty of the underground - the best place to find. A lot of stalactites and stalagmites, but most of all struck by a huge landslide hall, the size of the imagination. In General, if you want unforgettable memories and beautiful unusual photos - the Marble cave - the very place. ...
