A group of Russophiles in Britain is organising a “social group” visit from Britain to Crimea, featuring a jeep safari, wine-tasting and horse riding, in an attempt to circumvent the trade and travel ban to the Black Sea peninsula.
The spokesperson said the purely social visit did not break western sanctions. She said: “I believe the danger would be if I was a business, if I make money. I am not a business, I am an ordinary person like everybody else.”
The trip included a visit to Stalin’s secret nuclear submarine base, in Balaсlava. The underground submarine base includes a combined underground water channel with dry dock, repair shops, storage warehouses for torpedoes and other weapons.
Balaklava bay itself.
The tour also included a visit to Vorontsov Palace, one of the oldest and largest palaces in Crimea, which was built for Count Michael Vorontsov in 1846 and took 23 years to construct. Its architect was Edward Blore, who also designed parts of Buckingham Palace, St. James Palace and many other important buildings in England and Scotland.
And many other beautiful and unique places in Crimean Peninsula.
