Scythian Naples, the ruins of ancient Scythian capital, is another interesting attraction. Archaeologists have restored the center of the old town located at the top of the hill. Guests of this unique open-air museum can stroll through the historic main square and admire the spectacular building with columns - the mausoleum - where remains of Scythian nobility are stored.
One of the most beautiful buildings of the city is the Kebir-Jami Mosque. It was founded in 1508 and is the oldest object in the city. The mosque is open to all comers; tourists would definitely appreciate fine interior design of the shrine. There are interesting natural attractions in Simferopol, one of which is located near the downtown.
The chestnut tree with five trunks was planted in 1829; according to one of the versions, five chestnut kernels were dropped into one hole, and that led to the unusual appearance of the tree. Currently height of chestnut is about 25 meters and diameter is about 5 meters. Locals care about the tree, so every year it becomes more solid and impressive. There are also quite unusual excursion objects in Simferopol, such as the Chocolate Museum. Among its exhibits are true works of art, including models of world-famous attractions, portraits of prominent men of art and unusual artistic compositions. As you can guess by the name, all the exhibits are made of chocolate.
