Belated TR: Ukraine – Yalta (July 2008)

(Last Updated On: December 7, 2008)

From Odessa, we took a train overnight, arriving in Simferopol. From Simferopol, we took a mini-bus to Yalta. Yalta is a resort town located in an area of Ukraine called the Crimea. We used Yalta as our base to explore the Crimea, visiting places like Sudak, Livadia, Bachchisaray, and Sevastopol.

Yalta is popular for it’s beaches, located on the Black Sea. Many Eastern Europeans travel here, as well as Russians.
