In the 6th century BC Greek sailors settled in the big comfortable bay in the eastern part of the Crimean peninsula of the Black Sea and founded a colony Feodosia. In the 13th century it was restored by the Genoese merchants as the port of Kafa. In the 18th century the Crimea was occupied by Russia and Catherine II again renamed it as Feodosia. Nowadays, it is a sympathetic town that lives thanks to summer tourism and transit trading. Warm blue sea, sandy beaches and accessible costs attract many tourists from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. In summer the population of the town multiplies in several times. Feodosia was a home of a famous Russian marinist painter I. Aivasovsky. It is the center of the Karaim (Turkic Jews) community.
