Trip Planner: Europe / Crimea / Bakhchisaray District / Bakhchisaray / Bakhchisaray Historical, Cultural and Archaeological Museum-Reserve
Tour Bakhchisaray Historical, Cultural and Archaeological Museum-Reserve, a gem of Ottoman architecture that represents the traditional Crimean Tatar lifestyle of the 16th century. Dating back to the 1500s, this complex contains mosques, a cemetery, and former palaces spread across 4 hectares (10 acres) of landscaped gardens. Similar Islamic structures can be found in only a few places within Europe, including the Alhambra in Spain. Observe the compound ornaments fashioned by artists from Turkey, Italy, and Iran, and take time to explore the interior's fountains and bronze furnishings. Look for the fountain of tears that Qirim Giray Khan built for his wife. You'll also encounter one of the largest mosques in Crimea here, built in 1532.
