City Plan Simferopol Ukraine

Simferopol is not located in Ukraine; it is the capital and largest city of Crimea, a region that has been the subject of geopolitical disputes between Russia and Ukraine. As of my last knowledge update in September 2023, Crimea was under Russian control, and Simferopol was the administrative center of the Republic of Crimea, a self-declared entity recognized by Russia but not internationally recognized.

Simferopol is a city with a rich history and cultural heritage. Here’s a general description of the city:
