Not very peaceful @ all. The Greeks, Byzantines, Tatars, Ottomans, Russians, British, and finally the Germans have all spilled blood to control this strategic (if beautiful) peninsula.(and some of them on more than one occasion)

If the Crimea changed hands any more often, they would just call it 'little Poland'

Very beautiful country, quite peaceful looking. I'd love to visit the east and west of the Urals one day.

Wow...I half expected a "Beautiful Russian women want to meet you" site; it is a beautiful place. About the economy thing, all you guys need to do is build some decent roads, and the rest of it will literally fall into place. People, goods, services and jobs need a cheap, reliable and versatile means of transportation.

In America, we had navigable rivers, then trains, and with the wealth from those, roads, trucks and privately owned vehicles followed almost naturally.

You build a road system for us to drive our SUVs on, mention that housing is cheap, and the Crimea will be overrun with former California residents desperate to escape the crowding and high prices. You'll have your own Disneyland and hundreds of MacDonalds and Starbucks franchises in no time.

On second thought, maybe that's not such a good idea after all.

cheers

Are there any remanants of the battles fought on this part of Russia? The battles for Sevastolpol were particularity brutal during 1941/42.

Uhhuh... And after every Ukranian is working at WalMart, eats at McDonalds restaurants, drives the same badge engineered Chevy Blazer and lives in exactly identical italian style houses behind stone walls, they'll be thinking back to the "good old days" of Soviet Union when you still had a choice... Uncle Joe's vision for the USSR = American Suburbs. The people just don't realize that they're being held captive.

You never noticed that? Soviets had the "state" that tried to provide everyone the same exact conditions - US has a handful of "corporations" that are basically doing the same thing, just different approach. Go look at some of the new construction, you'll see gated communities with identical houses, and the same megastores all over the place, in their standard building designs next to the same chain restaurants. About as warm and lively as a zombie with a smile (that could be just Florida, though ;-)).

As someone who did not grow up in this kind of enviroment, I'm just saying what it looks like to me.

I think you'll find beastiality is illegal there too! I guess your name is a bit of a give away. You must have spent many a happy hour behind a team of oxen. It was bound to turn your thoughts that way! There seem to a few guys on this forum with a passion for our Bovine friends http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

I saw a program a while back on the Crimean war... actually I think it was more specifically discovering the truth behind the legend of the Charge of the Light Brigade... one of the problems they had with the archaeological aspect was that the same ground was fought over in WWII and the whole battlefield was littered with shell casings.
