Despite Recent Political Upheaval, Crimea Is Still a Top Tourist Destination

Even after 2014’s forced annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, the peninsula is still one of Eastern Europe’s premiere tourist destinations. Husband and wife filmmaking duo Richard and Dasha Hugg vacationed on the peninsula this past May. The short film below documents the couple’s journey through Yalta, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Sudak, Balaclava, and Ai-Petra. See more of the Hugg’s work here.
