Introduction of Stary krym
City of the Ukraine, in Crimea. From the 13th to 15th centuries, as Surkhat or Solkhat, it was the residence of the Crimean khans of the Golden Horde and was a major caravan center. It languished when the capital of the Crimean khans was moved to Bakchisaray.
The ruins of several 14th-century mosques, and a caravansary survive.
