There never was a wild landscape inside these city walls; it was most probably the city meadow where the goats an cows grazed. Therefore the grass was short and no one had to mow it.
About 10 million years ago there was a shoal.

On an area of Crimea of about 27,000 sq.km. there are three macro-regions and 20 climatic subregions. Due to the complex structure of the topography and features of the atmospheric circulation, rainfall are very unevenly distributed over the territory of Crimea - from 250 mm per year in the steppes to 1000 mm or more in the mountains. The greatest amount of solar heat gets Crimea in summer (up to 2095 MJ/(m² * season), especially in July. The minimum amount accounted for mountains, and the maximum - on the west coast of the Crimea.
On the photo - Evpatoria on the west coast of the Crimea. The most sunny part of the European territory of the USSR (289 sunny days per year). Therefore, in 1960, was built Deep Space Communication Center (on the photo visible big antennas on horizon line).
