Ukraine – Crimean Tatars

Crimea, Ukraine

When I was visiting Crimea, I had the impression that I’m in Turkey, well, kind of Turkey. It’s probably because of some buildings, mosques, people, everything looked to me more Turkish than Ukrainian (it was just my first impression). And there is some sense in it! E.g., there are Tatars living in Crimea.

Crimean Tatars (sometimes called Crimean Turkish) are a Turkish ethnic group that formed in the Crimean Peninsula during the 13th – 17th centuries.
