On a visit to Pushkin
In Crimea there are two restaurants that seem to take us to the atmosphere of the 19th century, in which poet Alexander Pushkin lived and worked. This is the "Pushkin" restaurant in Yalta and the "Pushkin" restaurant in Bakhchisarai. Despite the thematic similarity, these places are absolutely different. In Yalta, the resort capital, guests are met with refined style, luster and authentic interiors of Pushkin time, with unusual dining halls: "Entresol", "Cellar", "Library" and others. The guests are offered russian and european cuisines.
And in Bakhchisarai the guests will be offered a cozy interior to enjoy dishes of East European cuisine. The atmosphere there is easy and creative with accents of oriental flavor. A skillfully designed interior takes you several centuries ago, but at the same time it does not let you forget that you are in a unique city − once the capital of the crimean khanate.
