Begun in the 2nd century, Anacopia Fortress has the power to transport visitors back in time. The tourist site, partially restored to its ancient glory, features a Roman-style tower offering sweeping views of the nearby city, the sea, and the slopes of the region's mountains. The small Christian church near the tower features early Christian paintings and symbols. Mind the steep steps and prepare for the climb by wearing a good pair of shoes.

Самая тяжелая часть пути бетонная дорога от пещеры до кассы - это самый сонцепёк. До касс может спокойно такси подкинуть, и у касс тоже полно такси - если здоровье не позволят лучше не рискуйте. Касса... more »The hardest part of the journey from the caves to the concrete road-this is the soncepjok. To Kass can quietly slip the taxi, and Kass, too full of taxi-if not better to play it safe. Cashier 200 p. the entrance, for the quirky, you can crawl through the slope through a bunch of thorns free (get ready in advance, tight pants off) the trail you will find itself. After CASS slope is quite gentle and always in the shade, the road zikzagom-wagging slowly reach any. At the top you will have to wait for a different look (recalled Tower on the mountain of the m. Akhun in Krasnodar Krai) and cold kolodeznaja delicious water (particularly prosharennye take with them plenty of empty bottles for her-really tasty). There is a chapel. You can put candles. On expensive found toilets. There is no food. Cut, deviate from the main trail is not advise-strewed ground as steel balls.

В заголовке - слова Чехова. Подъем на гору не тяжелый, если вы не ограничены временем. Мы - были ограничены. Поэтому наш выбор был - сначала - такси, затем бегом на гору и также бегом с горы... Пошли ... more »In the title-word Chekhov. Lifting on mountain is not hard, if you are not limited by time. We were limited. So our choice was the first taxi, then run on the mountain and also run from the mountain. Went in while the rest of the Group was in a cave. Not quite pozhdaleli. Kinds of awesome. Energy-fantastic. Not to mention that it is one of four districts of the Virgin on Earth.

Ежегодно посещаем Абхазию и непременно отправляется в Новый Афон, чтобы посетить Иверскую гору и крепость Анакопию. Это место по системе три в одном: красота природы, древняя история, религия. В гору ... more »Annually visit Abkhazia and sent in new Athos, to visit the Iberian Mountain and fortress Anakopiju. This place is three-in-one system: the beauty of nature, ancient history, religion. Uphill climb on foot, definitely need to get into the holy place and fetch water from the Holy source. (Always adhere to this rule, though not religious). From the fortress ruins, only works on restoration. It offers stunning views of the new Athos.

The old fortres on the top of the hill. The main tower is illuminated during the night, so it is hard to miss. Breathtaki mg views, especially during cloudy days, when you see the clouds are passing through the top of the hill.
Серёга К.June 6, 2017This fortress on the Hill climb every time visit Abkhazia. Something pulls me back. Everything would be great and good, if not letting folks about parking. Entry fees before lifting take different-who and how enough insolence; look who stands before him. If you do not give a ticket, it can take 150, 200 and 300 rubles. Also saddens zasrannost' roads all debris while you are climbing. There already are to blame themselves and visitors who litter (real pigs), and local, that are not cleaned ... Climb on, quick! Some get tired of the heat to go, just before reaching the parking lot. And all the "charm" ahead.. When you can walk ostocherteet trying to go on the road, and not directly, where possible, climb the Hill straight upstairs. It's harder, but at times reduces the path =) But be careful-there are found the snake.
Олеся ВоронинаJune 19, 2017Very interesting historical place, where there is an ancient Anakopia fortress the 8th century and remained a small chapel with a copy of the Iveron icon of the mother of God. Worth a go see. From the observation deck of the city very beautiful views of the new Athos monastery. But! The cost of entry into the territory of this natural reserve is 200 rubles per adult, with 100 students, children under 7 years old-free of charge
Сергей ГундарцевJune 16, 2017Just beautiful. Just a point of interest is not a fortress and the chapel of the Iberian icon of the mother of God, and a mountain named in her honor. Moreover, the authorities should be ashamed of the State in which is situated the chapel. The mountain is mostly coming from which pilgrims take on 200 rub. Apparently the restoration of anakopia fortress!?
Елена СедоваMay 31, 2017Fabulous place found quickly. The fortress is located 300 m away. above sea level. With mountains and towers opened chic panoramas. Went last night and not during the season, were there alone.
