Seaside cities start from the embankments- it is their heart and place of strength. You can spend here hours watching the sea sparkling in the sun, the docked ships and numerous passers-by on their promenades. The embankment in Sevastopol lays for two kilometers along the center of the city – with views on the sea, lots of monuments and buildings. The most known of them is surely “Monument to Sunken Ships”, a little rock 20 meters from the bank with Corinthian column with flying eagle on top (there are dozens of legends in the city about when the eagle will finally start to fly, but the bronze bird is still on its place). Right across it, on the shore, there is a memorial sign, devoted to the participants of the armed rebellion led by lieutenant Schmidt; a bit further you will see the sundial, and from it you can go down the stairs right to the sea, where waves crash the granite and sprinkle water on those who stand there a bit longer.
