Monument to the Flooded Ships in Sevastopol, Sevastopol

4.8
Commemorating 50 years from the First Defense of Sevastopol, rises 16.7 m (54.7 ft) out of the sea. As a part of the memorial complex that was created in 1905, this large Corinthian column with an eagle on the top reminds visitors of the sacrifice made in a battle against the Allied navy. Aware that the enemy had a much stronger army, the Russian military council created a barrier using all its ships, and the entire defense force united at land. This prevented the powerful enemy from approaching. If you swim to the landmark, you'll also see a plaque on its granite base, featuring a map of the sites where the ships sank.

  • Beautiful and well-groomed, the problem is in people who bathe nearby. They leave bags, throw garbage into the sea. Very unpleasant
