Bakhchisaray means the "palace of gardens" (Tatar). It was a capital of the Crimean Khanate (XV-XVIII).

When the Crimea was absorbed by Russia, Bakhchisaray became a standard provincial town. Old part of the Bakhchisaray has retained a medieval atmosphere with its narrow and curved streets, as well as many other medieval attributes, including Khan's Palace. Bakhchisaray is small and you can get almost everywhere on foot.
