The Sudaksky fortress shrouded in aura of medieval romanticism has been constructed by genoeses in the 14-15th centuries. The unique historical complex including gate, the Christian temple, the mosque and many other escaped constructions occupies nearly 30 hectares. Judging by symbolics and texts on plates, numerous towers of fortress generally were called on names of consuls at which were under construction.
From the Watchtower built at the top of the mountain the magnificent view on the sea and surrounding open spaces opens. This tower has the parallel name - Maiden, and the sad legend of the daughter of the governor Sugdei is connected with it. The girl has committed suicide, without wishing to submit to will of the father and to marry the Pontic commander.
Long ago the fortress which has fallen asleep century dream from time to time again comes to life. Here spectacular festivals and knightly tournaments in which re-enactors from the different countries of the world participate are traditionally held.
