Sevastopol, 16th and 24th coastal batteries

52 photo with description
Nearby village Uchkuevka under Sevastopol the rests of 16th and 24th coastal artillery batteries.

Construction of the coastal battery
Having seen after the journey a certain concrete construction, I have decided that it is the rests of any PILLBOX of the Second World War. It has in actual fact appeared that the rests of structures — a so-called fort of Hrulyova (Germans named its fort «Shishkov», under the name of not remained farm which was on this place). These two batteries covering Sevastopol from the north, have started to build in 1905, and have finished only by 1912.

Index of entrance to Sevastopol
Entrance index in Sevastopol. A reference point if will decide to find the battery (between Uchkuevkoj and Ljubimovkoj, on the right on road from Sevastopol; after Ekaterina's mile and the index of entrance to a city). Co-ordinates: 44.655323, 33.549533 and 44.653440, 33.546682

These batteries of all once participated in operations. During the First World War cannons shooting on the German linear cruiser «Geben» which attacking Sevastopol in October, 1914 (damages has received both a cruiser, and one cannon of 16th battery). Crimea

At the Second World War defensive works have been spent on drink by proletariat have become unfit for use, but were used by infantry of Red Army as a strong point. Germans have qualitatively pressed batteries to what numerous traces of shells and splinters on walls of constructions of batteries testify. During German storm all defenders of batteries were destroyed.

Constructions of these two batteries have very much impressed me. They it is considerable larger than 35th battery on cape Chersonese of which have made a memorial complex.

And it is literally nearby, at settlement Ljubimovka, there are restored efficient towers of legendary 30th artillery battery with two triple 305-millimetric (!) cannons. It is a pity that I have not found out them and did not know about their existence (however as did not know and about these two batteries).

The rests of 16th and 24th coastal batteries — one of the most picturesque and interesting fortification constructions in Crimea. Times of the last century, certainly. The Genoa fortresses in Crimea — a special pearl.
