Welcome to Koktebel
A merry band of Russian bohemians, led by gregarious bearded artist Maximilian Voloshin, descended in the 1900s on what was then a small and remote village of Bulgarian refugees, transforming it into a favourite playground for the intelligentsia. This boho atmosphere lingered for a century, but the tide of wild capitalism has largely washed it away. Still, with two major jazz festivals, a couple of good musical venues and a naturist beach on the eastern side of the bay, Koktebel is not your average Crimean resort town, even though the majority of Russian youngsters who flood it in summer are pretty mainstream.
