Lonely Planet review
The focus of Sevastopol’s wartime memories is the painted panorama , on a hill near the centre of town. A painting around the inner wall of a circular building is supplemented with 3-D props designed to bring the 349-day siege of Sevastopol to life. Entry is only as part of a group tour, leaving at allotted times (usually every hour in summer; last entry is 45 minutes before closing). Some of the signage below the platform is in English.
