Adventure tourism, archaeological expeditions
Travel companies, the children's educational organisations and amateur associations spend during a school vacation (spring, summer, autumn and even winter) numerous adventure programs. Their basis is made by the richest natural and historical sights, and fashionable "ѕяръютъѕ" - a mountain bicycle, riding, kladoiskatelstvo, pionering (a life in the protogenic nature) and the features everyone fight-scout fairly flavoured with that the real quest (generally is called in the beginning were searches sokrovish, and are then thought up computer games-browsers, but the present generation does not reflect on it).
If other – that is riding, the mountain bicycle, the training programs everyone there of a cord-obvjazki it is possible to arrange all anywhere, such abundance of constant archaeological sensations as in this region, is not present anywhere.
The Bakhchsarai area on scope of black archeology, possibly, one of world leaders. I wish to warn at once that to struggle against robbers of ancient tombs in Crimea now apply and desantirovanie from helicopters, and fire from automatic machines on defeat. At all do not buy gold or silver products from ancient tombs, and also awards of times of the Crimean war or the Great Patriotic War. Serious term can be received and for storage of the weapon of times of the Great Patriotic War, after all it find and in an operating condition.
However, now there are ample opportunities for collectors and even more ample opportunities for kladoiskatelej (if you hand over the finds to the state and to be photographed with gold and silver relics, and also with the weapon - any problem). You can quite collect a collection of stone and bone tools of the primitive person, antique and medieval bronze and ceramics on a lawful basis and even to take out, having obtained the permit in the Ministry of culture of Crimea. Details specify in the Crimean regional customs +38(0652) 54-56-31.
Well now one after another:
- special excursions with metal detectors on places of the most bloody battles of 19 centuries - Alminsky and Balaklavsky - will be organised by the Yalta and Sevastopol branch of Intourist. The finds which are not representing to national value: bullets, splinters of shells, buttons from uniforms and other - quite honourable souvenirs. Well and from cost of the treasure which has been handed over to the state, it is possible to receive the fourth part of its cost.
- excavation of antiquities any expedition which incorporating representatives of the state scientific institutions or museums and has obtained the permit in the Crimean republican committee on protection of monuments now can conduct. That is basically all amateur associations and in general all wishing to participate in excavation now have such possibility!
For work on expeditions on cave cities it is necessary to contact the Bakhchsarai state istoriko-archaeological reserve - +38(06554) 4-74-81, 4-28-81). Expedition on Mangupe is especially interesting, many groups of students and schoolboys already took part in it of Crimea, Ukraine, Russia, Germany and other countries. But the most sensational finds during last seasons does speleotsentr "Onyx-round" on an obsidional well of the cave city of Chufut-kale. Here, by the way, a remarkable example of that the private concern also has extracted an invaluable material for a science, and has created highly remunerative tourist object.
Large universities of Russia have in Crimea constant bases archaeological an expert. If you have an interest to archeology, to begin with contact high schools and historical associations near to your residence.
