Monument to defenders of Adzhimushkay Quarry, Kerch, Crimea

Black Sea Circuit 2013

Simon Raven braves the strong wind on top of the Soviet style 'Monument to Defenders of Adzhimushkay Quarry', that dominates the suburban landscape near Kerch. Fierce battles took place here during the Great Patriotic War in 1942, and below lies a labyrinth of tunnels named the Adzhimushkay catacombs.
