How is the Shopping in the Port of Yalta?

The gift shops at the port of Yalta are mostly full of typical souvenirs ranging from key chains to vodka to Matryoshka dolls. However, try to get away from the port to avoid higher prices. If you head to the main market, you will be able to find other handmade goods such as hand-painted wooden crafts, embroidered clothing, linens and more. Yalta offers excellent produce, caviar, honey, and vodka. It is a good idea to carry some local currency to make the shopping process easier with locals. The street vendors outside Alexander Nevsky Church hold an outdoor food and clothing market every day. For more information, read our feature article Yalta Port Guide on
