The port city of Sevastopol and the once top-secret Soviet submarine base at Balaklava were both important sites in the Crimean War, immortalized in Tennyson's poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade."
Arriving in Sevastopol is akin to sailing into a fortress, with gray Russian and Ukrainian warships lined up in every direction.
Tours are offered to Sevastopol's navy yard and nuclear submarine depot. Visitors can also opt to take a less ominous excursion to the ancient Greek archaeological site of Khersones (also spelled Chersonesos).
