Ukraine - Crimea (Chapter)
This is the Crimea chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ukraine guidebook.
Diamond-shaped Crimea is a subtropical paradise with bluff limestone plateaus, lush coastal forests and turquoise bays. Yet, few foreigners are here on a beach holiday. Instead, many of them are lured by infinite opportunities for outdoor adventure, the peninsula’s fascinating ethnic mishmash and its history.
