Bakhchysaray

Getting around

All buses to Bakhchysaray stop at the train station, 3km west of the Khans’ Palace. Through services, however, often lazily stop at the start of the street to the station plaza, so stay alert and alight immediately if you hear the word ‘vokzal’. When leaving town, buses depart from outside the station.

From here, marshrutka 2 (1uah) shuttles constantly to the Khans’ Palace. A taxi will cost up to 10uah. To get to the palace on foot (a 45-minute hike), walk 300m east of the train station, to the large intersection, then straight ahead (third road from left).

Uspensky Monastery and Chufut-Kale are another 2km up the same road; you can walk or catch a passing marshrutka. Near a cluster of Tatar restaurants, a paved path heads up the hill on the right to Uspensky Monastery (a five- to 10-minute walk) and Chufut-Kale beyond.
