Welcome To Holidays In Crimea

'Holidays In Crimea' specialise in holidays, travel and tourism to the truely unique and wonderful holiday maker's paradise on the shores of the Black Sea famously known as 'Crimea'

Holidays Travel and Tourism to Crimea
Crimea is the name of Ukraine's diamond-shaped peninsula that juts out into the Black Sea. Crimea is one of the most fascinating corners of Ukraine, with the most varied scenery and climate, the most ancient history, and the greatest opportunities for tourism. The sub-tropical climate of Crimea's South Coast is near-Mediterranean, making Crimea's beaches a prime holiday destination for millions of Ukrainians and Russians and growing numbers of Foreign Tourists each year. Health and Holiday Resorts are abound on the peninsula, which is famous for its mineral waters as well as its wines. Just a few kilometers from the Black Sea, the Crimean Mountains rise to 1500 m above sea level.

Crimea's high season is July and August. However, it is generally warm from mid-April to the end of October. September is a perfect time to enjoy the resorts with less crowds, and October brings wonderful Autumn colour to the peninsula. Even during winter months which bring occasional snowfalls there are usually periods of sunshine every day. Spring in Crimea begins in early April and is especially scenic, with Crimea's wide variety of flora all in bloom. Summer itself can be scorching hot at times, especially when there is no wind.

The Black Sea is not as warm as some seas, but the water reaches 22-25° C during summer months and is often warm enough to swim in till late October making Crimea an ideal tourism destination.

The air temperatures rise into the 30's during the summer months.

The Caves of Crimea
Crimea's most famous resort town is Yalta, which became a prestigious vacation destination in 19th century Tsarist Russia after the first road was built from Simferopol. Sevastopol, Balaklava, Alushta, Sudak, Yevpatoriya, Koktebel, and Feodosia are also well-known resorts. Sevastopol on the west end of the peninsula is more of a regular city than a resort; it is a navy town with shipyards and the headquarters of Russia's Black Sea Fleet. Sudak has some awesome sights, and its beach front area has been very nicely developed and is ideal for holidays. Yevpatoriya and Saky on Crimea's west coast are known for their soft sand beaches - a Crimea holiday maker's dream.

Crimea Resorts
While each Crimean resort town has its unique set of sights and historical monuments, they are all alike in certain ways — there is always a beachfront area full of restaurants, discotheques, hot dog stands, musicians, jugglers, caricaturists, "find out how powerful your punch is" stands, and locals selling everything from trinkets made in China to fresh milk. If you enjoy hanging out at crowded beaches in the daytime and having fun at night, these Crimean Holiday Resorts are for you. You'd probably enjoy spending a couple days in each town as you move down the Crimean coast during your holiday.

Sudak Holiday Resort

If you'd like more solitude, Crimea has plenty of that to offer too. There are hundreds of secluded health resorts and hundreds of kilometres of undeveloped coastal areas. Here you may come across folks who spend the entire summer living in caves by the beach, groups that spend weeks practicing yoga or meditation in remote corners of the peninsula, and of course nudists who have congregated in Crimea since Soviet times.

Crimea Adventures
Crimea's incredibly varied terrain and scenery provides wonderful opportunities for all kinds of outdoor recreation — mountain hiking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, spelunking, rock climbing, hang-gliding, scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skiing, and even snowskiing. We at 'Holidays In Crimea' will very happily organise all your fun and entertainment for you.

Crimea Mountains and Cave Cities
The Crimean Mountains are home to magnificent caves, forests of beech, oak, pine, juniper, and endemic species, windswept mountain plateaus, called yayly, and curious "cave cities" from the Middle Ages as can be seen from viewing our photo gallery. The mountains are most accessible from Simferopol and the old Tatar town of Bakhchisaray, but you can also use an aerial cable car that goes from Miskhor (between Alupka and Yalta) to Ai-Petri Mountain at 1200 m above sea level.

The winery was built in 1894 – 1897 near Yalta, Crimea. The subtropical air climate of the region and the protective shields of mountain chains create unique conditions for the production of high quality fortified and dessert wines, which combined with the extraordinary architectural merit of the cellars, have earned Massandra a position as one of Ukraine's nationally important sites.

Its Collection is one of the largest collections of fine and rare wines in the world, estimated at over 1 million bottles, of various types and vintages which are recorded into the Guinness Book of Records.
