Following the picturesque highway southeastward, passing the aqua park, we get to the health resort Saki. The name of the city is associated with Scythians (the Persians called Scythians Saki), but in reality this town has nothing to do with Scythians. It was just a whim of Catherine II to name it in compliance with the fashion for antiquity at that time. First medical institution, which used balneological factors of the locality – mud, brine, maritime air – began to function in 1827. Historical details you will get at the Historical-Regional Museum. The two-storied villa housing the museum was built in 1913. The well-known doctor M. Burdenko worked in Saki in the first half of the 20 th century. The town is famous for several salt-pans, one of them – Sasik-Sivash – is the largest in the Crimea. The Church of St. Elijah is the surviving sacral construction (1903, 38 Simferopol St.).
