Colors of the autumn Crimea

Autumn is a great time to travel around Crimea. Autumn in Crimea comes much later than in central Russia. 

In November, the Crimean forest is fantastically beautiful. It acquires different shades of autumn: bright red scumpia, golden aspens, beeches, pale red maple, brown oak, and evergreen firs and pines. Indeed, the beauty of the autumn forest is difficult to describe in words. This is delight, and peace, and tranquility, and reverence.
