Now with Russia’s annexation of Crimea plunging the region into turmoil, the pictures take on a poignant and almost sinister quality.
Seaside promenades such as Yalta are shown here as lively places awash with try-your-luck games and fairground abandon.
Many of the images have a playful quality and give a sense of great levity in their own context.
We particularly like this large cat, which has disguised itself as a till, either as an opportunistic embezzler, or because its owner thinks it might get the punters in.
Kroger also reveals a more sedate side to the locations – empty beaches and elderly people playing board games.
While both of these visions paint a slightly different picture of the place, they are completely at odds with recent images of the region in conflict.
Crimean Holidays by Anna Kroeger is on at The Book Club 100-106 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH until 3 July.
