Cornucopia’s travel guide

Steppe between two seas: the Kerch Peninsula


The wonders of Kerch: golden steppe, ancient Scythian tombs, secret castle and the Azov's white sand beaches.
What you will see

Head for Arabat, a lonely Ottoman fortress guarding an extraordinary spit, then for Kazantip to swim off the white-seashell sands of the endless Tatar Beach. And take your watercolours, too. The vistas of steppe and sea are quite breathtaking.

Getting around

Best to have a car, or a very fast Mongolian pony.

1Kerch

The other Bosphorus. For the Ancient Greeks, this eastern tip of Crimea was the limit to Europe. Kerch's strategic location on the strait between the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea was always a great attraction.
