Sudak (Ukrainian: Судак) is in the Crimea.

It was once a fairly important city; Marco Polo mentions it and the Moroccan traveller Ibn Battuta rated it one of the world's four great ports, as of the early 1300s.

Get in[edit]

The normal route into Sudak is via Simferopol International Airport, the main airport on the Crimean Peninsula. There are flights from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, as well as some other major cities in the former Soviet Union.

There is a ferry from Varna, Bulgaria (served by charter airlines, and WizzAir flies to nearby Bourgas) to Yalta (sometimes subject to unpredictable cancellation). It is easy to take a bus, minibus or taxi from either Simferopol or Yalta, although it helps if you can speak Russian.

If you have the time to spare, trains also run into Simferopol from Moscow and St. Petersburg. A cheaper option than flying.

Get around[edit]

There is a minibus to Noviy Svet.


Genoa ruled the area in the 1300s and ruins of their fortifications are still there.
