Recently, along with the American Corey, I traveled to Yalta. Just three days, but we had a lot to see (and could further). Before that I was in Yalta, only once, in the year 2000, and held it for a few hours. Measles is not something that in the Crimea, but in general in Ukraine for the first time.

It is also the first time he traveled by train. Before the trip, I told him in detail about the different classes of cars and what it means in practice. Corey assured that he is absolutely calm can go to any class. And although we were set to the compartment, to Yalta, we were able to buy only the upper second-class place car.

The train set off at eight o'clock, and at nine they asked us to take their shelves. Corey has not planned to sleep, so I just stood in the doorway for about an hour. Then nevertheless I decided to climb on the shelf. I said that without shoes it will be more comfortable to sleep on it waved, and said that he was fine.

Waking up at night, I noticed that the shoes are already on the third shelf. As a result, Corey almost not sleep all night and was very wrinkled. Glad that we have back in the sleeping car tickets.

Our fellow travelers were an elderly couple. Grandfather constantly groaned and was very proud to be asked to move or hide the window. He just tried to solve all the questions himself.

Who knows, it is impossible to come to Yalta by train. The final destination on the South Coast is the city of Simferopol. Hence our forthcoming trip to Yalta on a trolley bus.

Why I strongly recommend to go to the Crimean trolleybus?

- Crimean trolleybus is the longest trolleybus system in the world (86 km).

- In contrast to the bus, in the bus is much more spacious, he rides safely, without having to travel into the oncoming lane of dangerous mountain roads, and comes not long after a minibus.

- The fare from Simferopol to Yalta is only 12 USD. (1, $ 5).

Especially because the route goes to a lot of new trolley buses Ukrainian production of "Bogdan", a trip that is comfortable.

In addition, it is also a free tour along the southern coast of Crimea.

So we arrived in Yalta, and the first thing they saw - a trolley station.

We got in touch with the owner, who has agreed to stay, and it has caused us a taxi.

When we piled into a taxi, the taxi driver asked where we go. I honestly do not know where, and I thought that the owner said it already (in any case, in Kiev, the destination always said even when ordering).

I called her and heard in the tube "mateldarstan". Some Mateldarstan - I said to the driver. Some a motel? - he asked me.

It turned out the motel "Darsan". But this information did not help the driver, he did not know where this motel. In the end, he got through to the manager and he explained where to go.

The place where we had to spend two nights, it was very nice. The hostess, love, calls his home "Hobbit House". That part of the house in which she lives - small and located in a small recess, can therefore. And there is always cool without air conditioning. I had to take refuge at night.
