After visiting the colony we advise you to ride westward to Novyi Svit. In the past this picturesque settlement was named “paradise.” In 1878 Prince L.Golitsin purchased these lands, laid out vineyards, and built a winery. Champagnes of Prince Golitsin caused a sensation at the Paris wine exhibition in 1900, and were awarded Grand-prix. The winery has been working so far, producing the best Ukrainian champagnes. At the museum (11 Chaliapin St.,) you may become acquainted with the history of development of wine-making in Ukraine, and order an excursion to the winery, visiting the tasting room.
Another zest of the settlement is the so-called Golitsin’s path, which was made in the rocks jutting out into the sea and forming three beautiful bays – Dark Blue, Green, and Sky Blue. A walk along the path is paid, because the capes Koba-Kaya, Kapchik and Karaul-Oba with their thickets of rare dendriform juniper have been declared a reserved zone. The parking lot is located at the eastern outskirts of the ‘settlement; further you goon foot. The next route is leading to Feodosia. You can turn right in Schebetovka in the direction of Kurortne and visit the biological station with a pool, where dolphins and fur seals give performances. There is a shady park there. Scientific workers of the biostation organize excursions to the mountain range Karadag. The trip takes a few hours so you must have with you appropriate footwear, a hat, and drinking water. You will see landscapes of unprecedented beauty so fatigue can be ignored.
