 SEVASTOPOL SIGHTS ACTIVITIES

  Sevastopol is a nice-looking city, but most overseas visitors will he in town because of an interest in the Crimean War. Some of that history is celebrated in city monuments. The Eagle Column (1904), atop a rock in the sea, commemorates Russian ships deliberately scuppered at the mouth of the harbour in 1854 to make it impossible for enemy ships to pass.

 The Admiral Nakhimov monument literally puts on a pedestal the man who led the city's sea and land defence. 

 The focus of Sevastopol's wartime memories is the painted Panorama  on a hill near the centre of town. A painting around the inner wall of a circular building is supplemented with 3-D props designed to bring the 349-day siege of Sevastopol to life.

 Behind the Panorama are several original gun emplacements and redoubts from the Crimean War. From here you can also see Russia's Black Sea Fleet still controversially nestling in South Bay, beside ships of the Ukrainian Navy.
