What to see in Feodosia first of all
Compiling our rating “Interesting places in Feodosia”, we took into account the recommendations of experienced guides and seasoned tourists. According to them, the best excursions in Feodosia are as follows:
1. Genoese fortress Kafa
Genoese fortress of Kafa – medieval fortifications of the XIV century in the city of Feodosia Janmad
This majestic 8-meter and three-level building is included in all lists of the “Best Sights of Feodosia”. For a hundred years, the Genoese reliably fortified and expanded it, and in just five days of siege by the Turks, they lost it. Later, the fortress became the property of the Russian Empire and was on the verge of complete extinction. However, it was saved, and today, with its walls, observation platforms, gates and towers, it serves as a real decoration of the city. Every year the festival “Genoese Helmet” is held here.
2. St. Constantine's Tower
Tower of St. Constantine in the city park Odyanenko Sergiy
An ancient tower named in memory of the legendary commander Konstantin. Previously, the object was located at the border of the sea, but little by little the border moved, and now the defensive structure is located on the square of a landscaped city park. Like many other architectural sights of Feodosia, this one has an original shape: despite the entire fortress of the building, one of the walls is tilted to the side and seems to be falling.
3. Milos Dacha< /h3>
Plaster copies of antique statues line the main façade of the Milos dacha Investigatio
Tourist reviews usually describe this exquisite 1991 “antique” palace as “magnificent” and “charming”. The mansion is an example of Romanesque and Greek architecture. The name of the building was given by the neighborhood with the sculpture of Venus de Milo. At present, the building of the local sanatorium is located at the “dacha”. In the courtyard you can see a portico supported by caryatids and beautiful marble fountains.

The building of the former dacha of Stamboli on Aivazovsky Avenue in Feodosia Victoria Makovskaya
Your trip to Feodosia should certainly include a visit to this object of the early 20th century.

As well as some hotels in Feodosia, it has special interiors in oriental style and unique architecture of the facade. Both levels of the building of the chic palace have retained their expensive decoration of valuable wood and marble.
