History of Schengen in the mid 80s of the twentieth century, the mutual integration of the European Union has reached a level that was necessary to make a qualitative change in the rules of migration. As a result, on June 14, 1985 in Luxembourg in the Schengen part of the EU member states signed a document of global significance – the agreement on the abolition of passport control. The new standard visa Schengen he named. Currently, the Schengen area includes two half a dozen countries: Austria, Germany, Belgium, Greece, Hungary, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, France, Portugal, Czech Republic, Sweden, Switzerland, Estonia. The essence of this agreement lies in the fact that citizens were able to move freely within the Schengen area.

Condition for such freedom of movement is to obtain a Schengen visa at any of the above countries. The Schengen visa is a single model for states that do not belong to the Schengen zone. Because the types of visas, the objectives for the citizens of foreign countries differ, as well as the duration of stay abroad – Visas are divided into different categories: A, B, C and D. Category A – for this type of visa applies airport transit visa, which allows the holder to stay in the transit zone of an international airport with no visitation rights territory. Category B – This type of visa, which is also considered a transit is already to travel through the territory of one state to another visit. Category C – is the most sought, type of visa which, in reality, can be identified as the main Schengen visa. The Schengen visa is issued for this category of short-term visits. On it you can enter the country, the embassy which issued it to you, and only then you can move freely within the entire Schengen area without visas in more states within the Schengen Union.

In this case, it is important to note that this type of visa does not give you the right to work in these states. Visa C is divided into subtypes, which represent, as a rule, the length of stay and frequency of entry: C1 – entitles you to enter up to 30 days; C2 – gives you the right to stay in the Schengen group of 31 to 90 days; C3 – issued for multiple entries (multivisa), it is valid, usually within a year and gives you the right to stay in the Schengen area not exceeding 90 days; C4 – essentially the same as C3, with the only difference that is issued for 5 years. Category D – this type of visa is for entry to a particular country (national visa) and gives a fairly broad powers to its owner, namely the right to remain in the state for a long time, to get a job with the possibility of a residence permit, etc. Despite the fact that quite often you can hear the words "Schengen visa type D, still, I want to emphasize that the head of all these type of visas in the first place, the definition of a Schengen visa, falls into the category of visas under the letter S.

If circumstances or state of health do not have to dive in one day, diving can be transferred to another, more convenient. Usually "Daily-diving" is part of a combined guided tour, during which you can see not only the underwater world of the country, but also with its architectural and cultural features. "Diving-safari" offered to those who already have considerable experience in submarine dives, who is not afraid to get out into the open sea and, of course, does not suffer from seasickness. For the rest of the shoot is usually a specially equipped boat, which allows access to the most interesting places where marine life and fauna is represented most vividly. Depending on the itinerary, "diving-safari" can last from three days to two weeks of daily 2-4-dives. Such a cruise is not conducive to extensive acquaintance with the country Departure is at best visitors will see it from the sea, but the cuisine, customs and traditions do not pass by the divers on board.

An important aspect in the selection group for the "diving-safari" is a refinement of diving experience each participant. The ideal solution would be to create separate teams of experienced divers and from those who have already mastered the basics of diving, but whose experience in the sport still small. 'Holidays diving' exotic vacation for modern humans is not limited to excursions to the sights of the country and visiting beaches. Nothing helps to recover for a couple of weeks of vacation as active recreation and total relaxation rate.

Let’s wait a week – like – to pay for a second. No – you will find our neighbors the best option. Another tip: Abkhazia. Beds is 50 rubles per day. The sea is cleaner cars lower rates at all cheaper than in Sochi on 2-3. Problems with Border crossing no. From the train station and airport are GAZelle to the border and from there – also a minibus on Abkhazia.

Second: the food. Or dine at a cafe in Sochi expensive – prices are 30-50% more than in Russia. Of course, if you live in motels – no power supply problems. But if you remove room – advice – prepare yourself. Products a better buy in the shops where the locals buy (in the shops in resort towns and more expensive by 20-30%) or in the markets. As a result, you will save 100-200 rubles per person per day. And the money to spend on entertainment.

Third: entertainment. Of course, you want to travel with excursions in , in Abkhazia, to make jeeping or scuba diving, dolphin, or visit arboretum. Right advice – ask the long holiday, with a guide, they take trips, whether they liked it, how much and by comparing it all, you can choose. It so happens that one firm radeet for quality of service, and another – just tear off the money, providing for tourists broken down Gazelle without a guide. And advertising is the same, and the second is even cheaper the price. And of course, take a vacation or a digital camera camcorder – an indispensable thing for future memories. The result was this: Rest in Sochi will cost you $ 500-700 (a reasonable rate of course) experience is useful for experienced sochentselyubov to conduct this time for maximum benefit, from cooking the food yourself (if you’re not in a sanatorium), it is better not to give up – and stay well fed and to live enough. PS I wish you all a pleasant stay and a reasonable use of available resources ….

During our stay janitors and cleaners trash we saw virtually no boxes – they are replaced by cardboard boxes overflowing, garbage is often stored for several days in black bags at the most inappropriate places. In the parks along the coast lies the old perennial foliage and rake cleaning requests. Appearance and design of green areas the most primitive – the flower beds with flowers in Mishor not, here and there lawns trimmed with just grass. The Crimea has always been something to see. The peninsula is surprisingly rich natural attractions, historical and architectural monuments. Buy the girl, running from the tour desk "Breeze", on the waterfront excursion by cable car to Mount Hay – Petri, 400 rubles per person.

During an excursion to any organization. Continuous delays and waiting in the heat (instead of 3 X-scheduled hours to get 6 hours of tedious). Even trips to Arab travel agents abroad were an order of magnitude better organized. On the next trip to Vorontsov Palace in Alupka go already "savages" – turns out cheaper, faster and more interesting. Go back to Tver in Krasnoperekopsk, Kherson and Dnipropetrovsk region stocks of gasoline and cheap fruit. Customs clearance mere formality. Happy holidays (unless You can be dissatisfied with the sea and sun), but remained a residue of unkempt and desolate.

The magnificence of this nature are used to wear. The impression that just having a rest in the Crimea, a source of enrichment. In average cost vacation in the Crimea on the road, accommodation, meals, excursions to 1,500 rubles per person per night, which is comparable to the cost of holidays in Egypt, but much inferior to him in the general level of service and service. Obtained in Egypt (in the former desert) for the same money you can wash with shampoo paving tiles, and in the Crimea can not even remove the debris. Yuri Chashin 09/01/2009
