The fresh sea air, unpretentious architecture and romantic forts are a world wull of mosaics of the Church of the Savior on Blood. Its gastronomy is not too refinedand the city’s main eating spots are concentrated in the center. Try the Bolshaya Cherepakha Restaurant, where you can find good food and nice atmosphere, eating borsh and fried koryushka.
