Lake Rica, Gagra
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Nestled in the Caucasus in the disputed territory of Abkhazia, Lake Rica offers a tranquil space to explore. The lake, which is fed by six rivers, has a mysterious air about it that has inspired local legends. One such tale tells that the lake was once a river valley that was caused to fill with water by a sword thrown in an attempt to rescue Ritsa, a girl of the valley. Head out onto the lake and take in the views of the forest, which covers the mountains to the water's edge. Swim in the deep blue lake or fish for trout, which are abundant within the lake and river systems. With our custom trip planner, Gagra attractions like Lake Rica can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The Lake is very beautiful and picturesque, but we should go early in the morning, so it was less people, otherwise uncomfortable.

  • Captures the spirit, what a beauty. Definitely worth a visit. We were at the beginning of November, lay a small layer of sleet, soaked through and through. Be sure to wear rubber boots. There are several cafes. Pretty fast service. Shashlyk and ukha from trout liked. Marred one driver took touch hot together with the owners of the cafe. So way back was very "hilarious".
