From a distance Sevastopol looks like a snow-white ship with many funnels floating forth with its white stone palaces and deck-like embankments from the numerous little bays cutting into the steep shores, breasting the blue sea and the sky, and reflecting its evening illuminations of many colours in the waters of the Black Sea.
Under the Soviet times Sevastopol was a "closed city." The Decree of the Ukrainian Government of 1995 "opened" the city and allowed foreign citizens and ships to come into the city.
