to smokejim Thank you for your interest to Crimea.The place is really cheap, except for yalta where prices are twice higher than in Crimea in common. The right time to come - depends on what you are planning to do: it's warm here till the end of october, and in winter it's worth to go too. In winter time it's great to go jeep safari, skying and sightseeing.

to mel - help you? With pleasure. What are you interested in? Don't hesitate to ask!

to UtrechtI'm so glad to hear you know the place I live! And certainly you sould come to see everything.

Hi Anna,

My wife, her mother, and I are thinking about visiting Crimea next year. My German ancestors (originally from the Stuttgart area) came from there and Isabel's grandfather was apparently buried there during the war. I doubt that we will find much evidence of either one any more but we will make a pilgrimage of sorts. I might get back to you in a few weeks or so with some general questions.

Hi, Kevin!

As soon as you decide to come do not hesitate to ask.
I can help you with accomodation, transportation, tickets and so on here, in the Crimea and in Ukraine in general.
There is a point you can start from:

German Military Cemetery

During the WWII – time of the siege of Sevastopol by the German Army and liberation of the city – more than 300.000 German soldiers and officers died. Most part of the remains were bought to Germany during the war, but thousands of bodies stayed in the land of Sevastopol.
Because of understandable reasons, during many decades it was impossible even to talk about the creation of cemeteries for German soldiers. But nowadays by the initiative of Germany it became real.
In 1998 in a village Goncharnoye near Sevastopol the German Military Memorial cemetery was made. 5.500 remains of German soldiers were buried here. The territory of the cemetery is surrounded by the hedge and it is guarded. In the center of the Cemetery there is a 2 meters high memorial cross.
