Welcome to Feodosiya

Kaffa's fortress, still partly intact, protected it from plundering nomad armies but not the biological weapon used by the Mongols during one siege: they catapulted in the bodies of people in their camp who had died from the plague. It is believed that the fleeing Genovese subsequently brought the disease to Europe.

Imperial Russians built opulent sea-facing palazzos in the town, and some still soar above the present-day city's myriad souvenir stands and fast-food joints.
