Lake Rica, Gagra

4.7
#1 of 15 in Nature in Georgia
Water Body Nature / Park
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.
