How to get there
You can get to the Baidar Valley from Sevastopol and from Yalta. The highway connecting these two most important administrative centers passes through the Baydar Pass. It was built in the middle of the XIX century by order of the then governor of the peninsula M. Vorontsov.
You can go to the Baidars from Yalta through Foros, but it is more convenient to do this from Sevastopol. Regular buses No. 37, 41, 182 go from the 5th km bus station to the village of Rodnikovoye. Then you have to walk a bit to the selected point on the route. But traveling by car will be much more fun. You should go along the Yalta highway for about 30 km, then turn left at the sign “Rear. Eagle "and you are in Baidar.
