So, I'm from California, where we have a Sebastopol in Sonoma County. I wonder: is "Sevastopol" really the most common English name for this place in the Crimea? --Evan 12:26, 31 Jan 2006 (EST)

Wikipedia seems to think so, and it's the correct transliteration of Севастополь. Jpatokal 20:11, 31 Jan 2006 (EST)
"Sevastopol Crimea" outsearches "Sebastopol Crimea" on google by 2:1. The first four results from the latter are Crimean-war or British Military links -- i.e. 19th Century references. Even Sebastopol calls the Crimean city Sevastopol [1]. -- Colin 21:00, 31 Jan 2006 (EST)

Spring 2014 events[edit]

I have updated the information on the page to reflect the status of the city and how it will affect the travelers based on what I know from my friends and relatives in the city, as well as information from Russian, Ukrainian and American news websites. If anyone has more up to date info, please feel free to correct what I have added, but please stay neutral about the issue - as I understand this is not a political forum. Only add facts, not opinions, and just stick to the information that would be important to the travelers (Like long queues to the ferry and which currency is used in the stores). And thanks to User:Ttcf for improving language in my edits! TheRussianSpy (talk) 03:12, 17 November 2014 (EST)

My pleasure - I think you have done a big service to travellers and it would be great if you could keep things up to date... --Ttcf (talk) 05:37, 17 November 2014 (EST)

Visiting Crimea[edit]

Hi, am staying in Moscow for a couple of weeks and visited Crimea eralier this week. I'd like to stress that visitng Crimea is in no way dangerous for anyone. You can only go from Russia, and it's not the case, as stated in the wikitravle page on Sevastopol, that you have to contact Ukrainian authorities. Whatever you think of the annewxation of Crimea, it is a fact. If you go from Russia, you don't need any aditional formal steps in addition to the visa you needed to come to Russia. Wrting that it's dangerous to visit Crimea doesn't refelct reality, it's rather a politcal statement, of a kind that I find totally inapropriate for a site that shoud give you reliable information on how to get around.—The preceding comment was added by (talkcontribs)
