Z22 - the 22nd anniversary of Kazantip Crimea 2014
For youngsters and for not so young, but also loving vacations, Kazantip festival is an event that should be minimum once in your life. Kazantip - it's now or never! The problem that is always in front of a great number of visitors is that to spend a dozen days of vacation abroad - that's rather expensive, the prices in Miami, Cancun and Ibiza have exploded. You should also add the price of alcohol and entrance to the club... But Kazantip is a dream that may become reality... Kazantip is like a Russian version of American Spring Breaks at Cancun or Miami, but it is many times more fun, more electro. A lot of people have already realized it and from the month of April there wouldn't be a lot of available rooms in the village with the exotic name of Popovka where the festival takes place for a month.
The capacity is rather limited - the best hotels of Kazantip are sold out a few months before the festival. If you take your decision before the month of April, your vacation will cost you two, three or even four times cheaper than that at Ibiza. For the moment your total budget for fifteen days at Kazantip in the for three persons room of our hot deal in the village of Popovka where the festival takes place is around 645 Euros (price per person for accommodation, transfers to/from the airport or railway station of Simferopol or Sevastopol, half board and insurance) with kazantipvoyage.com
True or False? It is useful to know before your trip to Kazantip... and also throughout Crimea. It's a pity to miss the best night clubs of Odessa, Evpatoria or Sevastopol. It's a holiday that lasts all the summer in this Ukrainian cities on the shores of the Black sea. Simferopol is the university cities where they party all year long. But first of all - Kazantip!
Entry ticket festival kazantip 2014
How to enter the territory of the festival Kazantip in Crimea ?
You are planning your trip to Kazantip and you ask yourself how you will enter the territory of Kazantip. The territory of the Republic of Kazantip is a closed protected space. In order to pass security post (the border of Kazantip), you must have an entry ticket that is better known as Viza. Viza Kazantip is a plastic card (viza for multiple entries) or a bracelet for a single entry viza. Your photo is registered. Guards can see your image on the screen.
The single entry ticket can be bought only at the entrance to the festival.
The ticket for multiple entries can be acquired in two ways:
1. register yourself already now and buy the ticket to Kazantip online, the price of the ticket grows when the time passes;
2. arrive at the end of July or at the beginning of August and buy your ticket on site.
For those who choose to buy the entry ticket online:
1. register on the official site kazantip viza department . If you've got any difficulties during registration (the site is only in Russian or English), we can provide you with all the necessary help;
2. buy your viza online. The discount system is simple: the more you pay for viza online, the less you have to pay. For an application for registration Viza, you have to fill your identification information and download your photo.
Replacement of viza in case of a loss, theft or confiscation by security
If you don't respect the constitution of Kazantip, your viza can be confiscated and you can be expelled from the territory of Kazantip.
The main reasons for deportation are sexual harassment and peeing outside of the toilets! According to the seriousness of the violation, viza can be replaced by the department Viza or definitively removed. If a citizen pays the fine, behaves in an appropriate way, then a trouble is over, he swear that he will never commit violations again, the fine is 20 euro.
In case of an occasional loss of viza, it is renovated for the same price.
Kazantip True or false?
There is no doubt that you've got some preconceived ideas on Kazantip and Crimea in general. Our experience showed us that there are numerous sites that drive out the false ideas, for example about security, climate and Crimea in general. Here you can get some answers for your questions.
The official site of Kazantip?
Beware of scamers! The ONE and ONLY OFFICIAL SITE of the Kazantip Republic is kazantip-republic.com . Don't let anyone deceive you! You've searched kazantip with google and you've found sites that have nothing to do with the official one. kazantip.com is not an official website. kazantip fr is the same one that kazantip com - that means both of them are not official. Kazantip doesn't have any official representatives in Europe! kazantipvoyage.com is the site of your trip to Kazantip
Where is Kazantip? In Crimea !
The most known website kazantip com is not an official one. In 2012 the name of Kazantip was used for a festival in Portugal.
If you still doubt - Kazantip is in Crimea and nowhere else! You can read what Nikita (the real president of true Kazantip) thinks about Kazantip in Portugal. It will be really a pity to miss the 22nd anniversary of Kazantip and to find yourself in Portugal.
Kazantip is in Crimea. See the red circle on the map !
Kazantip will always be in Crimea ! Kazantip takes place in a little village called Popovka, just near Mirny (on the map you can see Popovka). Just see the google map of Popovka
Not so far frome Mirny, you can See Yevpatoria, a good city to make party in nightclubs
Google Map of Popovka with Kazantip and one of our hotels : Galia
Weather at Kazantip? It is warm in Crimea!
In summer the weather at Kazantip is the same that at Ibiza! In July and August the climate is rather warm and dry at Kazantip and the temperature rises up to 35 degrees. The marine air makes this climate not very exhaustive and rather comfortable. At night the temperature descends lower than 25 degrees above zero. The temperature of the water in the Black Sea is about 20-25 degrees. You have good chances to be successful with the weather during your vacation at Kazantip. So it is not only a musical festival; you can also spend a perfect vacation by the seashore. The weather in Sevastopol, Yalta or Odessa is also very favourable in summer. With Kazantip Voyage you can book a tour uniting at the same time Kazantip, Sevastopol, Odessa etc. The weather is perfect in Crimea not only in summer, but also in spring and autumn.
Is there enough water and is it hot?
In the village of Popovka there are sometimes certain problems with water supply, but it is not a problem for our hotels, having their own stockages, that are enough to supply you with water for a shower during day or night. The warm water also exists in Crimea:) , so no need to bother. The rooms that we offer correspond to the European standards of comfort and hygiene!
Crimean mafia and delinquency?
Mafia exists in Crimea. It also exists all over the world ! It is an Italian word, isn't it? It prevents you from going to Italy? Or to live in another country ? Surely not. But think in the other way. Do you believe that 150 000 of festival visitors are involved in mafia business? It's not dangerous to have a walk at the festival or nearby… The chances to meet an aggression are not more than at the airport of Kiev or Simferopol … The level of delinquency in Crimea is comparable to that of your country, and we can assure you that there is a little chance to see something suspicious, disturbing or menacing. Any event concerning the festival is ensured by the local police. Their outfit is rather differrent... If your behavior is normal you have no risk to have more problems than in any place in civilized city ! The global spirit of Kazantip is the fest, not a crime or a conflict. You'll be astonished by the pacific spirit of people, even of those who drink without any measure. We should mention that the greater part of population of Kazantip are students and active youth. Everyone comes to have a good time - it's thanks to them it feels so good at Kazantip. Our advice for good trip at Kazantip will let you spend your vacations without any problems.
Kazantip is a festival of drugs?
Kazantip doesn't differ from the dancefloors you usually visit. Some people use ecstasy and ganja as anywhere else (but the proportion is a few time less than at Ibiza). Consumption and sale of drugs is not visible and it can't disturb the tranquility of the festival. Attention! This is not a rave party! People here rarely look as "ravers". The common thing between people here is the spirit of openness and accessibility.You don't think so? Come to Kazantip by booking here your promo tour, your hotel or your apartment.
Are there any problems with drinking vodka or other alcohol?
One should admit that the consumption of vodka and other alcohol at Kazantip is rather impressive. But on the contrary to what you can imagine,it doesn't lead to any problems with security or discomfort.
The phenomenon of "drinking bad alcohol" is usual for eastern Europeans; no doubt that it's the force of the habit... The fact that it takes place at the very seashore doesn't mean anything. You don't think so? Come to visit Kazantip. It is not rare to be invited by the Russians/Ukrainians to have a few drinks with them in order to make an acquaintance... We advise you to offer the same when it's your turn.
Attention, it doesn't mean that they don't have fun without drinking! There are a lot of people who don't drink a lot of alcohol, and those who drink are as sociable as the others. The alcohol coma is extremely rare despite the astronomic quantity of consumed alcohol. Anyway we ask you to be moderate with this when you are on place.
Are the girls nice in Crimea and at Kazantip?
This is not a myth! The girls are beautiful here! You can see it yourself on the photos on this website or ask someone who has already been here. You can hardly find anyone who hasn't been astonished with the beauty of the Ukrainian/Russian girls. We invite you to discover it with your own eyes by booking your vacation at Kazantip! They are not only beautiful but they are also not very modest: it seems that the obligatory wearing of strings is written in the Constitution of Ukraine! We'll see...
Kazantip will be for free for girls ...
In december 2011 the president of the Republic Kazantip Nikita 1st offered a "humanitarian aid to the people of Belarussia and promised a viza (pass) for free for all the girls from Belarussia. Why only for the girls? Because men of Belarussia must fight for independence of their country". That's Nikita who said this. So it's better to believe. We are waiting for this summer!

Eat outside Kazantip in the village of Popovka or at Mirniy
You can find several small restaurants but there is nothing extraordinary. We recomend you local meals: pelmeni (ravioli) and plov (rise with meat). We'll show you on arrival the spots that are to visit. If sometimes you want to have a good meal in the restaurant - use our transfers to Evpatoria that is 40 km from Kazantip.
Eat inside Kazantip
To eat inside Kazantip will be even more expensive or much more expensive - minimum two or three times. It's difficult to give you prices as they change every year.
The most efficient solution is: to eat at the hotel or to cook meals yourself. This is also the best solution as for your health! We prevent you from eating at some temporary structures like tents offering shashlik (barbecue), shawerma (lamb on a metal rod). The rules of hygiene are not always respected and each year there are people who feel sick.
That is why there is normally no place in the restaurants of our hotels and we have to add chairs and tables.

Price of alcohol at Kazantip: what to drink at Kazantip
Certain websites offer you a free bottle of vodka if you buy a tour. We think the best is to offer you a cheap voyage and tell you real prices for alcohol at Kazantip. The most popular alcohol at Kazantip is vodka as throughout in Crimea.
Click a photo to enlarge it
Ukraine is the country where vodka was invented (and not Russia as they think). The most popular brand of vodka is Khortytsa. Vodka is the most popular alcohol drink in Crimea and at Kazantip. There are several types of vodka Khortytsa of different taste:
premium, light grey label
platinum, grey label
silver, silver label
classic, blue label
absolute, light blue label
golden cedar (with pieces siberian cedar and with juniper), green label
honey, chilli, lime (they are special for Crimea: we recommend them for strong men!) golden colour of vodka, brown label
plum and cinnamon (for gourmands) yellow colour of vodka, grey label.
Khortytsa is the most popular brand that is sold everywhere but there are also hundreds of other brands. Vodka in Crimea is usually sold in bottles of 0,5L , 0,7L and 1L. Normally it is 40°c.
On the territory of the festival they usually sell 2 brands of vodka on different dancefloors as well as the other types of alcohol.
Vodka is cheaper in our hotels or in the shops of Popovka than inside Kazantip. In 2011 in our hotels a bottle of vodka 0,5L cost 8 €, inside Kazantip - from 15 €. One can find it even cheaper but of low quality. You can even find vodka for 3 euros per bottle 50 cl !
Russians and Ukrainians do not mix vodka with juice. They use two glasses: one for vodka and another one for juice or energy drink.
The second popular alcohol at Kazantip and in Crimea is "shampanskoe" - a light sparkling wine. You can find this product of a rather good quality in Crimea, especially "Sevastopolskoe" and "Novy svet". A bottle of local champagne costs from 3 to 4 euros in any shop (on arrival you will find plenty of mini-markets). Russian and Ukrainian girls like this "champagne" very much. Don't hesitate to invite them for a drink. This won't crash your budget but will certainly build some links.
Another popular aclohol drink, especially in summer at Kazantip, is beer. One can find a very good Ukrainian beer among various numerous trademarks. Speaking only about the best: Tchernigovskoye, Obolon, Slavutich. At Popovka good Ukrainian beer costs from 1.20 euros for 0.5L.
Don't let anyone deceive you. The hotels of Kazantip Voyage propose you drinks at local prices.
Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health, but fortunately Kazantip lasts only one month a year!
Alcohol budget for a week at Kazantip
With an average budget of 50 euros per week you can allow: half a bottle of good vodka and several beers each day plus you will be able to offer your friends a bottle of local champagne. That's really cheaper than throughout the Europe! At Kazantip you won't need an enormous budget to party!
Price of cigarettes at Kazantip: smoking at kazantip
The best selling cigarettes in Europe are probably Marlboro with the price of 6.20 euros per pack while in Crimea the price is about 12 UAH that is 1.20 euros per pack! And we talk about the same pack of 20 cigarettes as it is anywhere in the world. That makes an economy of about 50 euros per carton... If you bring cigarettes with you on your retour (according to customs rules one can legally bring one carton per person), you will save even more. If you travel with two friends who do not smoke and each of them brings carton with them it will make an extra saving of 150 euros. Cigarettes Marlboro or others sold in Crimea are equivalent to the brands sold in Europe.
An average smoker that spends a week at Kazantip can legally economize up to 200 euros consumpting the same cigarettes that in his country. That will let you make your trip cheaper!
