Great experience and special atmosphere around there. Also good to rent a car ( just down the road) and have a trip to the top of the mountains ( you will be able to see one of the most beautiful views in Crimea)

Very beautiful church and even if one is not religious, there is a very special energy felt in this area. The church which is built into the rock is worth a visit and the view is just amazing.

A monastery and church built into the mountain side. Really interesting even if you are not religious it's worth seeing.

Photos are not allowed inside the monastery but the scenery along the way to the top of the hill is very nice. A quick stop is well worth it especially on a sunny day.
