“Genoa fortress Kafa,” historical and architectural reserve
The Genoese republic built medieval fortifications in the city of Feodosia in the XIV century for the defense of their largest possessions in the Crimea — Kafa. Fortifications consisted of fortress walls, reinforced with twelve towers; six gates led in the city. Only two towers remained till our times — Clement and Krisco — with the adjacent fortress walls. The fortress is located on the shore of the Feodosiya Gulf. Currently, this is the “Genoese fortress Kafa” Historical and Architectural Reserve.
The first exhibition was opened in 1845 in that part of the building, which belonged to the artist. In 1880 an adjoined exhibition hall was added to the house. After the death of I. K. Aivazovsky in 1900, the gallery according to his will was handed over to his native city. Since 1922 — this is the State National Museum.
