Friends who are fond of history will simply not forgive unless you visit the main historical sight of this ancient city - the fortress of Aluston, built in the 6th century by Byzantium Emperor Justinian I.It is located two hundred meters from the sea at the top of the hill. Once this building had three towers: Ashaga-Kule (preserved to our times), Chatal-Kule (completely collapsed) and Orta-Kule. In general, Aluston is considered the most powerfully fortified structure of the Northern Black Sea region. In the course of subsequent historical events related to the wars and falls of the Khazar Kaganate, the fortress was subjected to destruction, experienced periods of flourishing and decline. Historians have concluded that the June fire of 1475, which arose as a result of attacks by the Turkish fleet, destroyed the fortress city of Aluston. And it was not possible to restore it anymore. Only at the end of the nineteenth century were some restoration works carried out on the ruins of monumental buildings in the past, thanks to which we can admire this historical monument.
