The history of Yevpatoria is incredibly interesting. Originally the settlement based on its place was called Kerkenitida, subsequently Gezlev, and afterwards Yevpatoria. The settlement was founded by the Greeks, and soon it became part of a powerful colony - Chersonesos. The city was perfectly fortified and a fortress was built here with twelve powerful towers. Seven centuries of successful existence of the beautiful Greek city ended suddenly - all residents left the city after learning about the threat of the Sarmatian invasion.
The surviving part of the towers and fortress walls, located on Duvanovskaya Street, today reminds of one of the most important periods in the history of the city. The next historical period concerns Turkish rule. At that time the city was called Gezlev. It had an important strategic importance and was an impeccably fortified settlement with a powerful garrison, where a significant part of the Turkish army was based. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

When the Russian-Turkish war ended, and Crimea officially came under the rule of the Russian Empire, the city was renamed Yevpatoria. It was named after the famous Pontus king Mitridat Yevpator, who repeatedly saved the ancient Kerkinitid from the formidable Scythian tribes. In 1907, between Yevpatoria and Simferopol, the first telephone line was connected, and seven years later the first and the only tramway started to run here on the Crimean coast. The popularity of the resort over time only grew, and so in 1915 passenger trains began to come here. In Soviet times, Yevpatoria was a recognized children's health resort. Many sanatoriums were built here, which were oriented, first of all, to children's recreation and health improvement. Now Yevpatoria is one of the most popular cities in Crimea, which is famous for its developed infrastructure and rich historical heritage.
