Lake Rica, Gagra

(4.7/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • We decided to visit Abkhazia-Country favorite soul-during a holiday in Sochi-Adler in September. For this purpose, rented a car. Our hotel BRIDGE RESORT Adler was quite close to the border with Abkhazia. Crossing your car problems did not arise, it is important that the car rental contract was written, that the car can travel abroad Russia to Abkhazia. We tried to arrive early to get ahead of the tourist bus. Cars were, but border guards very spore with all the brainstormed. The road to Ritsa very beautiful along the way were passing the River, along the rivers, the trees stand the freakish form, overgrown greenery-a fairy tale! Sell Mead, honey, something else yummy. On the Lake-André Le Paute! It is located at a kilometer above sea level! Nothing has changed since my childhood, when all it was one country. Many tourists come, excursion buses go one by one. But we found a place on the right side from the entrance to the parking lot. Abkhazians normally relate to Russians, friendly, helpful staff. On the Lake you can go on catamarans, pedalos, boats. Full of souvenirs, there where to eat. There is no special purity (especially in the toilet). We even drove to the dacha of Stalin (need to drive around the Lake on the right). It was interesting to see the Soviet chic. Stalin did not like the sea, not floated, and the mountains opposite, liked. The Caucasus fully his dachas in the very picturesque mountain villages. Fresh air, mountains, wooded slopes, Sun-just live. I advise you to go there and see everything with your own eyes, trails with their feet. The road is not difficult, there's a plot mountain serpentine-beautiful!
