Simferopol is the capital of Crimea. It is its scientific, business and cultural centre. It is the largest and one of the most beautiful cities on the peninsula, and it has all the components required for both leisurely and educational tourism.


It is located in the heart of Crimea, near the Salgir River valley. Because all Crimea-bound roads go through Simferopol, it is called «Gate of Crimea». It is from this capital that guests begin exploring the peninsula.

City of Transport

Simferopol has a major railway station, which serves millions of tourists each year. In December 2014 Ukraine cut the railway line to Crimea at the border. Currently, the station serves only a commuter (regional) passenger train and the Moscow – Simferopol train every day.

The city is also connected via the Simferopol International Airport, which was constructed in 1936.

The city has several main bus stations, with routes towards many cities, including Sevastopol, Kerch, Yalta, and Yevpatoriya. The Crimean Trolleybus connects Simferopol to the city of Yalta on Crimean Black Sea coast. The line is the longest trolleybus line in the world with a total length of 86 kilometres (53 mi) (since 2014 again 96 kilometres (60 mi)).

The streets of Simferopol have a rare house numbering – the odd numbers are on the right side of the road, looking in the direction in which the numbers increase.

City with Rich History

The Crimean capital is the best place to start discovering the peninsula’s unparalleled beauty and rich history. One of the peninsula’s largest and most interesting museums is situated here – the Central Museum of Tavrida, whose extensive collection depicts the centuries-old history of the Crimea, the culture of local citizens, and the tremendous nature of the region.

Numerous ancient and medieval structures also give clues to the history of this city. The main archeological monument in Simferopol is the Scythian Naples Reserve, created on the territory of an ancient settlement. The most interesting feature of the complex is the mausoleum of Scythian aristocrats, which are stunning in their opulence and intricacy. The oldest building in Simferopol is the Kebir-Jami Mosque, which was built in the early 16th century, and it is especially interesting and remarkable.

City of Education

The largest collection of higher education institutions in Crimea is located in Simferopol. Among them is the largest university in Simferopol and Crimea, the Crimean Federal University named after V.I. Vernadsky, which was founded in 1917.

City of Sports
