The ruins of the Roman amphitheater sit just outside the city center on the way to Volga Beach. They're in relatively good shape. You can visit the lower area underneath for a small fee.

The amphitheater is easy to find. It is close to the main street and the sea boulevard. We found it rewarding to walk along small narrow streets - children playing outside - lovely sights to key locations in the town - we sincerely enjoyed it!...More

A lot of history but not fully uncovered yet. Maybe some more graphics of the lifestyle of that period and visuals of the original site can bring more added value,
