Novyi Svit (Ukrainian: Новий Світ, Novyi Svit; Russian: Но́вый Свет, Novyy Svet; Crimean Tatar: Novıy Svet; literally: 'New World' or more correctly 'New Community') is a resort town in Crimea, Ukraine, known for Novyi Svit sparkling wine produced there. Champagne production was introduced into Novyi Svit by a local landowner, Prince Lev Golitsyn, in the late 19th century.
The town is situated in a very scenic area where numerous Soviet movies were filmed. It boasts some fine beaches, a couple of resort hotels (one of which was supposed to be for Soviet cosmonauts), a several km tunnel inside a mountain where a factory stores its products, and a large juniper forest.
