Sevastopol is an important and historical port on the Black Sea. Founded in 1783 as the base of the Black Sea Navy of Russia, it was beseiged by the British in the Crimean War. In the 20th century it was the home port of the Soviet Navy’s Black Sea Fleet, and the city retains a significant Russian naval presence. The population is still largely ethnically Russian and the population’s sympathies still lie largely with Moscow rather than Kiev. Nowadays Sevastopol is the base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and Ukrainian Navy Forces as well as one of the most interesting tourist destinations in Ukraine.
