Introducing Simferopol

With its odd mixture of Levantine and Soviet, the Crimean capital is not an unpleasant city, but there is no point lingering here, as everything else on the peninsula is much more exciting – and it's only a short bus ride away! If you have a night to spend in Simferopol, use this opportunity to chill out in one of its quality restaurants and cafes – a bit of a rarity on the coast.
