Located on an inlet of Black Sea, Sevastopol is a major seaport and naval base of Russia. This historic city on the tip of Crimea peninsula with a natural harbour has been of great strategic importance to Russia. Sevastopol was closed for locals and tourists for several decades as a guarded base for the Russian Navy. It was only after the break up of Soviet Union that civilians were allowed to visit Sevastopol without prior government approval. The city is now the 2nd biggest in Crimea.
Take the 'Crimean War Highlights' to visit the valley of 'Charge of the Light Brigade', Lord Raglan's viewpoint and harbour at Balaclava. In the City see the 19th century St Vladimir Cathedral, the Museum of Black Sea fleet and Panorama Museum where a circular painting depicts the 349-day siege of Sevastopol in 1855. During the Crimean War Sevastopol sustained an 11-month siege and was severely damaged. During 1918-1920, it was the headquarters of White Russian army. During World War II (1942) the city was captured by Romanian and German troops after a 9-month siege. In 1944 Soviet forces retook Sevastopol.
