Surrounded by rocky hills and a small town, Balaklava Bay hosts several historical fortifications and one of the former Soviet Union's best-kept secrets. Explore the area around the sea by strolling through the quiet streets of the bay's namesake town, once the site of one of the Crimean War's most famous battles in 1854. Alternatively, visit the naval museum by the bay, housed in a formerly secret underground Soviet submarine base, to learn the inner workings of the USSR's Black Sea submarine fleet.
