On the eastern extremity of the Crimean peninsula and the step shores of the ancient Kimmerian Bosporus, as the Kerch Strait was once called, spreads the most ancient town of Crimea — Kerch. It could be called "the eternal town" by all the rights, because it was inhabited even in the Middle Stone Age.

During ancient times Kerch was the centre of a mighty Bosporan Kingdom. In the present Kerch area there remains ruins of ancient Greek towns of Panticapaeum, Nimpheum, Tiritaka and others. There are about 1500 burial mounds, among which the best known ones are: the Royal (Tsarskiy), the Golden (Zolotoy), the Yuz-Oba, and some dozens of ancient settlements and necropolises.

Through the modern part of the town, passing chistian church of 13th cenury, we will climb the top of Mitridate Mount, where in the 6th century BC some citizens of Greek city-state (Miletus, first of all) established their colony — Panticapaeum. Later seperate greek colonies united around this biggest polis, so the Bosporan kingdom was found.
