If you plan to rest at seaside, take route move in the direction of Bilosaraiska kosa (where there has been created a reserve of colonies of different types of herons) and the settlement of Yalta (Yalta map here). If you decide to stop near the resort city of Berdiansk, it is good idea . The city, which grew from the fishing settlement of Berda, declared about itself in 1841. Every thing started from the order issued by Governor M.Vorontsov to find a place for building a port on the Sea of Azov.

Commander I. Kritsky carried out the order, giving preference to Berdianska kosa, where today one can have a pleasant rest, in front of neighboring Obitochna (for which thankful inhabitants set up a monument to him near Maritime Square). The large port as­sisted the development of industry, however, it managed to avoid the sorry lot of Mariupol, and the city developed as a real resort. Curative mud, the brine of estuaries, the warm sea, and salubrious air create a unique recreational environment.

The history of Berdiansk is linked with such personalities as Piotr Schmidt, the legendary lieutenant, leader of the insurgent seamen on the “Ochakov,” who lived for some time in the city; the memorial museum of the hero of the Sevastopol revolt of 1905 has been arranged in the house he lived in; the artist Isaac Brodsky, former director of the Petersburg Academy of Arts, whose collection of works of art was rather instrumental in creating the city Art Museum in the 1930 s. The Museum of Local Lore with traditional stone im­ages invites tourists to familiarize themselves with the history of the “capital of Azov resorts.” While going for a walk by the city em­bankment you will be able to feast your eyes upon the fascinating beauty of surrounding scenery.
