Sevastopol is the most important Russian and Ukrainian naval port on the Black Sea and its military importance goes back to before the time that the ancient Greeks set up a trading post on these shores.  The entire city has a military atmosphere with monuments, museums, warships and massive guns both in the city and off the shore.  There are tours worth doing if you are interested in Military History.  Balaklava is most famous as the site of the suicidal Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War that was memorialized in Tennyson's poem of the same name.  The Black Sea Fleet Museum and the Panorama Museum are also of interest.

However, it is also a very walk-able city with many parks and vistas worth the effort. Our experience with the Ukrainians was very welcoming.
