Genoese fortress in Sudak

47 photo with description
In Sudak there is especially nothing to look, except the tremendous Genoese fortress which have perfectly remained (unlike Theodosius or fortresses Chembalo in Balaklava, for example). Fortress was built by genoeses in XIV-XV centuries, as a strong point (there is an opinion that the fortress is much more senior also someone dates VII century and that fortification passed from hand to hand: Khazars —> Byzantines —> Polovtsians —> Golden Horde —> Genoeses—> Turks; ostensibly even III century, but acknowledgement isn't present).
