How to have a rest in Feodosiya? Comfortably, tasty and cheap!
In my opinion, main “counter“ of Feodosiya - the budgetary rest in the beautiful and quiet place. What problems the vacationer needs to solve? They are three:
1. Where to live.
2. Where to eat.
3. What to be engaged in.
We, for example, do not rely at random, and we find housing in advance, on the Internet. There is a number of the websites devoted to rest in the Crimea in general and in Feodosiya in particular. The solution of a question with housing can take 3-5 days.
Only be not guided by the websites of hotels and pass - hotels, and also on intermediaries. You watch boards of personals: as a rule, the prices at private traders are significantly lower, and the choice is very big.
However, the housing, as well as in any resort, can be found in Feodosiya on an exit from the station at once. Plates hang on stalls with food: “I will lease housing“. At desire it is possible to walk on streets, adjacent to the embankment, where similar plates can be seen on many houses. Near the station, a little farther, along the embankment (on the next to it streets), houses of old construction are located, on the following lines the big private sector was stretched.
By the way, it is optional to go directly to the station. Within the city the Ayvazovskaya station is located. Near it there is a bus station from which there are long-distance buses across all Crimea and out of its limits. Having left on “Ayvazovskaya“, you are on Fedko Street at once - the second line where with high probability there will be a housing. So before departure we advise you to study the map of Feodosiya: it is not excluded what to reach the place necessary to you more convenient from “Ayvazovskaya“.
Persons interested can lodge also in hotel, but as I told in the beginning, - it will be a question of the budgetary rest. The prices in the private sector this year of 40-100 hryvnias from the person in days (1 hryvnia at the beginning of June costs 3,8 rub) . We remove a quite good room with a separate entrance and the conditioner for 100 hryvnias a day for two. We received the refrigerator, the TV with fifty channels for this money (local and couple of Russian), the gas stove and the certain vacation spot in the yard.
The shower and a toilet in the private sector, as a rule, also settle down in the yard. By the way, we always open the feodosiysky season early - at the end of May. But only this year found local feature - a water supply blackout for three days. Gathered water in 5 - the liter bottles given by owners and normally endured test. Especially as the city water utility with great dispatch worked and gave water on half-days earlier. Now, our hostess told us, you are the real feodosiyets!
The room in the apartment, as a rule, is more expensive, than in the private sector. Besides many private traders provide also the place for the car, some accept also with animals. Inexpensive options of housing came across to us on suburbs and in near suburbs of Feodosiya.
Choosing the room, consider also what beach is pleasant to you more. City beaches begin near the station. Here they pebble, and sandy begin from recreation facility of “Dynamo“. Good sandy beaches are in the area of Ayvazovskaya station. The place here remote from the center and silent, the park where black crows nest in a set was stretched nearby. Arrived at the beginning of June with might and main will find a season when the grown-up baby birds leave nests, and above park there is a dramatic croak. Crows hoarsely complain of life and show discontent with younger generation.
The second question, “where to eat“, in Feodosiya you should not even bother. In the city (at least, in its part, adjacent to the sea) the cafe is full. It is clear, that generally they are concentrated closer to the downtown but to find “the edalny place“ not a problem on all seaside zone. The prices (especially to the Moscow measures) very democratic. In different places they differ - but to have a bite for 20-30 hryvnias not a problem. Of course, a lot of things depend on appetite of the tourist... We together have normally dinner for 30-40 hryvnias, choosing places without pathos, but with good kitchen (however, apparently, that the bad kitchen does not exist here).
One of places where it is always full of the people and where that is important, local - the Bistro cafe located in ten minutes of walking from the station go. In assortment, besides habitual the first - second courses (by the way, perfectly prepared and given in the solid portions), there is a special counter: the various and most tasty pizzas made here.
More budgetary option very popular among vacationers, especially with children, - the Diyeta cafe located on Fedko Street going parallel to the line of the main city beaches. Such arrangement, undoubtedly, adds popularity to this place organized absolutely in the spirit of the classical Soviet dining room. The next door - bar with excellent Crimean wines.
In general, a large number of various cafes is concentrated around a house museum of A. Green. From here the embankment divided lengthways by a branch line begins. The part located closer to the sea is intended for walks.
Parallel to “walking“, on other side of a branch line, there is a continuous number of stalls with souvenirs. In the same place trade in a shish kebab, jotas - mastiffs and fish dishes (seaside specifics). And, certainly, the cooled wine in pouring, from hundred grams. Wines in the Crimea excellent, sell them here in a set of shops, bottles and on flood. Trade in wine and in the markets, but whether it is worth it if in shops the little can buy guaranteed qualitative more expensively?
By the way, about the markets. Them in Feodosiya two: Central and Crimean. Central it is significantly more, it is located as it is easy to guess, in the downtown. Nearby - bus station from where city and suburban buses go. Here, meters in hundred, - the ware market (though in local sekond - hands clothes very cheap, interesting finds are also possible).
Here ATB supermarket with the excellent range of products. The same ATB is located also near the Crimean market located on Krymskaya Street. The prices here, in my opinion, slightly higher, and a variety of goods is less, than on Central. But if you live in the area of the Crimean market, to go behind products on Central there is no special sense.
From market products I want to note such local counters as mussels and rapana (including marinated) and other marinades from seafood; sun-dried, smoked and salty fish; remarkable home-made sausages: blood, hepatic and so forth
the Official cost of a taxi this year - 14 hryvnias landing + 1 km are free, further - 3 hryvnias for kilometer. Trip cost on transport on the city this year - 2,25 hryvnias, payment to the driver at the exit. In general, I want to notice that buses and minibuses from Feodosiya go practically to all corners of the Crimea.
Local excursion bureaus offer trips around various historical places of the Crimea. Are included in the price of a trip the road there and back and the cost of tickets for object. Usually the trip to the same place the ordinary regular bus costs much cheaper, at the same time you are free in the choice where to go and when to go back. At least, we independently went round the most part of East coast thus - visiting the objects offered by travel agencies.
And, if we speak about the budgetary rest, when moving from one city to another be not conducted on zazyvaniye of taxi drivers. Especially at stations. In the Crimea it is possible to reach by public transport reliably and many times cheaper everywhere.
Finally a delicate question which cannot be ignored. Toilets are on beaches, the markets, along the embankment, well and, of course, you will be able to solve this problem in cafe. The cost from about 1 to 2 hryvnias (in the center, as usual, is more expensive). There is a toilet at the railway station from ways.
I think, this information is useful to you that nothing saddened pleasures from long walks on picturesque small streets of this beautiful ancient city. And the question of what to be engaged in Feodosiya and its vicinities, deserves separate article.
Believe, this subject is rather extensive to try to slip it by the principle “very quickly“.
