After Donetsk we went to the city Yalta on Crimea. Yalta is a seaside resort next to the Black Sea that for decades has been a popular holiday destination. Today there are mostly Ukrainians, Russians and others from the former Soviet Union who visit Yalta. A few westerners also come here but they are easily outnumbered by the Russians.

On the last day we were on Crimea we first went to Bakhchysaray and visited Khan's Palace. In the 15th century a Khanate, an autonomous region ruled by a Khan, was founded on the peninsula today known as Crimea. The Khan who ruled over Crimea had his palace in Bakhchysaray, where the Khan's palace still stands. Visiting the palace was very nice. They have furnished several of the rooms with furniture and carpets in the style that the Khan would have had it.
