What awaits you

And at first glance at the Muslim burials you will be able to determine whether the person was buried during his lifetime in Mecca or not

In addition, I will tell you about the Evpatoria dervisheskoy monastery, erected in the 15th century - there are only three such ancient Sufi temples in the world
Gezlev gate and Turkish baths Then you will go to the gates of the wood market, where we will talk about why they were called that way.
