If you want to find yourself in the Middle Age you should visit the Genoese fortress. This is a place where you feel a special breathe of centuries-old history (located not far from Sudak, (Crimea).
Walking around the fortress you feel how many events took place behind these very walls: it saw Alans (ancestors of Dagestan tribes), Khazars, Polovtsians; later on Turks and Mongols who destroyed the walls only for a reason that it was shame for Mongols to hide behind the walls) . If you enter a two-story tower standing at the precipice you can find a long secret passage leading downwards (such a concept allowed to reach the ship quickly in case of attacks).
Listen! Can you hear noise behind high castellation? Clank of armor, buzz of trade caravans and crowds of people… Watch! The riders are fighting with swords, someone is firing a gun and charming noble ladies strike with richness of the costumes. This is not a dream. This is an annual joust where you can be either a participant or a witness...
