Calamita Fortress in Inkerman

N 4436.185', E 3336.542'

Our rating: 7.00
Overall rating:

Inkerman is famous because of its winery. We went there to explore the ruins of the fortress, built in 1427 by Prince Alexii Feodoro. The original name of Calamita was changed to Inkerman in 1475 after the Turks had captured Crimea. The Turks also fortified the walls to withstand firearms. Below the fortress is also a cave monastery, but we didn't go there because we were more interested in beautiful scenery.

It's not easy to get to the top of the fortress. Since it's not a tourist object, there's no special path to it. Look for a gate on the left under the mountain and a small path upwards, then climb over the railway, and you're almost there.

The area is very picturesque. Nearby we found a large and beautiful granite quarry. The fortress has almost disappeared, but the scenery around is nice. Unfortunately, the object seems to be unreconstructible, although local authorities are trying to do something.

Getting there: The easiest way to reach the fortress is from Sevastopol. First, take one of the trolleybuses - ##2, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 or 20 - and get to the "Pyatyj Kilometr" ("Fifth Kilometer") endpoint. Then take a taxi or bus #104 to Inkerman. You can also travel by boat from the Sevastopol sea port from Grafskaya Pristan' (The Count's Quay). The boats should leave every hour, but this information is inaccurate.
