Section of the city of Sevastopol, in Southern Ukraine, on the Crimean peninsula.

In ancient times Balaklava was an important Greek commercial city. In the Middle Ages it belonged to the Genoese until 1475 when it was taken by the Turks, who gave it its present name.

In the Crimean War, Balaklava became famous for an allied victory (October 1854) over the Russians and particularly for the charge of the Light Brigade, celebrated by Tennyson.

On October 25, through a disputed error in orders, the earl of Cardigan led an English light cavalry brigade of some 670 in a hopeless charge on a heavily protected Russian position, and more than two thirds of his men were killed or wounded.

Balaklava was the capital of the former Balaklava district in the Crimean region (see Crimea) until 1957, when it was incorporated into Sevastopol.

There are ruins of a Genoese fortress (14th - 15th century) in Balaklava.
