  • Regular ruins in Gagra. We finished here, its a walk in the Park of the Prince of Oldenburg. But interesting beer restaurant around.

  • Fortress Abaata might not notice if you do not know what it is. Gagarin square, which is next-once was the site of battles with different invaders: extending from the modern Sochi and from the mountains, through the Gorge. Further, in the direction of Abkhazia was straight road. For a long time the fortress was abandoned around were marshes, etc. Already in the recent history of the Prince of Oldenburg became interested in these places and began a grand establishment resort area. On the mountain you can see his Castle, a better look at it from the bottom-just from the territory of the fortress. He, as a building material, used stone from the ruins of the fortress. But he was not the first-an ancient temple on the territory of the fortress is also partially constructed of the same material. Most likely, the locals also did not disdain to pull from the stone walls of the fortress. In order the fortress led when councils. After Sovietov-once again became acting Temple. Visiting the Castle, don't forget that the land around the Church was consecrated. Respect the feelings of believers, at least don't smoke. Now the walls from the street about two meters, maybe less. And from the side of the temple is much higher. Masonry walls of the fortress remained the same.

  • From almost nothing left. A large part of the territory ceded under the eponymous hotel. Inside there is a small church. On site you can take the scarves to cover her head. Recommend reading the history of this church, then this place would be any interest.
