Аnnotation: Results of the last paleo- and arheoseismological researches of Kerch-Taman region are presented. Data about the local potential sources of strong earthquakes defining a level of seismic hazard are obtained. Carried out researches have convincingly shown, that the level of seismic activity of a instrumental stage of observations far not always characterizes a real estimation of seismic hazard even in the general view. The results obtained allow us to conclude, that now the region is in a stage of seismic gap probably before a strong earthquake.
