Panticapaeum (Ancient Greek: Παντικάπαιον, romanized: Padikápeon) was an ancient Greek city on the eastern shore of Crimea, which the Greeks called Taurica. The city was built on Mount Mithridat, a hill on the western side of the Cimmerian Bosporus. It was founded by Milesians in the late 7th or early 6th century BC. The ruins of the site are now located in the modern city Kerch.

  • Gorgeous! The place has so much history in it, but no one wants to dig deeper. It's sad. No offense, but if no for lazy russians or ukranians, this might be a second Pompeii.  more »

  • If you ever happen to come to Kerch you should climb up the flight of stairs to the ancient city of Pantikápaion situated on the hills right above Kerch. (Or you might go there by car.) You will be rewarded with a magnificent view both of the city of Kerch, and the Kerch Strait with the Crimean Bridge.
