Comment: Cape Fiolent is one of the fabulous places in Crimea. Located in the city of Sevastopol. The cape is a sacred place for many believers, because it is believed that it was here that the Apostle Andrew the First-Called set foot on land. Cape Fiolent formed about 160 million years ago, after a powerful eruption of a volcano, frozen lava flows can be observed to this day. Their bizarre forms make the landscape of the area a truly unique natural creation. A huge number of caves and grottoes, clear water, fresh sea air make it an undeniably unique place on the planet. In the photograph in the cape, there are 2 rocks with the name Orest and Pilad. In the larger rock there is a through grotto, with a length of about 15 meters, through which you can swim. The entrance is at a depth of 13 meters. The rocks got their name in connection with the legend, in reminder of strong male friendships, which are not afraid of any trials, for which life is not a pity to lay down for a friend.
