CRIMEAN DIARIES: ANCIENT KERCH

Kerch is a city on the Kerch Peninsula of eastern Crimea.
Kerch was founded 2600 years ago, it's considered one of the most ancient cities in Ukraine!


The centre of Kerch and the famous Great Mitridates Staircase leading to the top of the Mount Mitridat,
contains 428 footsteps!!! ;)
On the top of the mountain you can see Obelisk of Glory, built after the World War II 








Site of ancient settlement Panticapaeum (5th century BC - 3rd century AD)
Behind me you can see the Demetra's Crypt, a crypt with numerous frescos dated 1st century BC





Panorama from the mountain




Church of St. John the Baptist (AD 717)

Fortess of Yeni-Kale (18th century)
It was built by Ottoman Turks 
The fortess was armed with powerful cannons
and took an important strategical place on the coast of Kerch Strait!
