SIMFEROPOL

If Adam and Eve had a choice, they would live on the Crimean coast. Crimean nature is not inferior to the luxury of the Garden of Eden. But there are much more temptations on the Crimean peninsula!

Yes, Crimea is a real Paradise in Ukraine and Simferopol is its gate. Unfortunately, the town has a reputation of a transit town rather than a place to have a rest. However Simferopol is a town with a long and interesting history, busy administrative and cultural center of Crimea.

Not without a purpose the name of the town in the ancient Greek means “gatherer town”. Being situated right in the centre of the Crimean peninsular Simferopol lies in the crossing of the roads from the east, west, north and south. The town itself can be divided into two parts: the old town (with curved streets and lanes, little crooked houses, a mosque and an orthodox monastery) and the modern town (with direct parallel streets, business centres, theatres, cinemas, museums etc.).

The Museum of Simferopol history tells us the story of the town. A lot of museum pieces are dedicated to the famous dwellers of Simferopol, such as Pushkin, Tolstoy, Aivazovsky, Franko, Suvorov and others. Moreover, the Museum of Simferopol history gives an opportunity to be absorbed in other significant events of the town history.

Simferopol disposes also:


  • State Art Museum

  • Ethnic Museum

  • Railway Museum

  • Art galleries with paintings of the Crimean modern artists

  • cosy libraries

  • numerous theatres and cinemas
  • parks with playgrounds and ponds

A small Zoo in the Children’s Park is a perfect place to spend time with kids. Taurida national University has a wonderful Botanic garden with various arts of roses, lilacs and rare trees. This is the favorite place of the dwellers for photoshootings and romantic walks.

The history lovers should visit Neapol Scythius — ruins of ancient town which was the capital of Scythia from 4th century BC till 3rd century AC. It looks very impressive!

At night Simferopol offers clubs, restaurants and theme pubs. For example, “Sila celta” is a Celtic pub with Celtic music and waiters in kilts; “Coffein” is a bar with a variety of coffee kinds; “Knyazha vtiha” is a restaurant with Ukrainian national cuisine etc.

Simferopol is a town where several cultures smoothly interweave that makes the town such an interesting and attractive place for dwellers and visitors. So, if you are already in Crimea tour, favour Simferopol at least one day and plunge into the businesslike but still romantic atmosphere of the town.
