Telephoto view of the far end of Balaklav harbor as seen from the entrance from the Black Sea. The Kadikoi location of the Highlanders was about where the long building appears in the distance.

View of Balaklava harbor from the hill near the Black Sea entrance. There is one submarine remaining. The underground submarine base was under the hill on the left side of the photo.

This view of Balaklava harbor is taken from the ridge line very near the narrow entrance. We are looking north toward Kadikoi at the far end and the Balaklava battlefield beyond. Until the breakup of the Soviet Union this was an important submarine base of the Black Sea Fleet. Now it is a fishing village as it was in pre-revolutionary times. Some day enterprising entrepreneurs will turn the lovely place into an artists colony and tourist attraction.

We are visiting a British monument to the Heavy Brigade on the south slope of the Causeway Height. It is in the midst of grape vineyards and not easy to find.

The village of Kadikoi which is to our right off the photo. Canrobert's hill is off to the right. On Sapun Gor ridge we see the white building which is the museum for World War II. It is located close to where Lord Raglan and staff were located during the Battle of Balaklava. The Causeway height is not much of a height but extends along the low ridgeline on the right half of the photo.
