The majority of Russians (41.94%) voted for the Military History Museum of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.
"The Sevastopol Museum is visible even from the street. What an architecture! A chic building, inside and out. I haven't been in other museums, but in Sevastopol there are a lot of exhibits. Even the decoration is on a nautical theme. In general, I was delighted after visiting the museum. On the day of the Navy there was free admission. If anybody is going to be in Crimea, keep this in mind. Maybe they will open it, I hope", Anna Kelm writes in the comments on the survey.
