Grafskaya Wharf, Sevastopol

4.5
Walk down the stairs of the white granite Grafskaya Wharf to reach the sea, and find out about historical events that occurred at the site. Dorian columns create a popular photography spot, and thousands of people lounge on the stairs throughout the year. Dating back to 1783, when it was just a wooden quay, the monument has changed in appearance through time, eventually becoming a Roman temple-like structure. Prominent Italian sculptor Ferdinando Pellichio added marble lions, and the city council installed memorial plaques describing historic events that happened here. Of particular note is the fact that the site served as a communication channel between the town's defenders during the Crimean War.

  • Mmm, okay. What's to be done here? There are no ramps, no slopes for strollers. We went down to the water, looked for five minutes, 15 more fought off all sorts of eagles-chinchillas and other poor animals in the hands of inadequate young unregistered entrepreneurs. That's all there is to it.
