Alushta Things to Do: 7 reviews and 26 photos

There is a belief, that disciple Andrew preached in this area of Crimea in the I-st century. Next to village General’skoe there is a remains of old Basilica near the spring. We took a tour because it’s impossible to hike there without local guide, it’s up the mountains through hidden mountains paths. The tour is not expensive ,so It’s wise to pay for a tour and you also can see a water fall Jur-Jur. It’s very picturesque view, and every 100 meters the temperature drops on 1degree C if you go down to the fall .The silver streams of running water falls from the high of 15 meters right in a middle of mountain forest.
A little bit further to the sea shore there is a wonderful museum of Sunk ships and worldwide marine tragedies .They show short moves about each tragedy there. It’s very interesting and worth visiting, on top of the museum there is a beautiful church in honor of all who suffered and died at sea.

Directions: You need to take a mini-bus and ask to stop next to the church near General'skoe
