  • The road to the fortress is quite difficult. Go to serpentine rather long, so athletic shoes required, Yes and a couple of bottles of water too. Local to the fortress are on machines, but does not reach 600 meters have to go anyway. But it's worth it! Simply awesome views of the sea and new Athos! Yes and the fortress itself is steeped in history, it is worth to see and hear!

  • In the past year went to Abkhazia on the sightseeing tour, which, unfortunately, was not the fortress of Anacopia. And when we were about new Athos monastery it fascinated me so much that I promised, that will return to Abkhazia and to climb there. And behold, a year later I returned. I have to say that we have chosen one of the hottest days, and it was a mistake. Because it was very difficult to climb, we simply ispepeljalo Sun! My young man not the sportiest and him straight was very bad, me a little easier. But at the top we felt incredible triumph! This award was for us a well with water, nothing could make us more happy at that moment. And Oh look, of course, is just delightful. It makes no sense to even describe, it's just a must see! Being at the top understand that everything was not in vain. Still I would like to mention a small chapel of the 8th century. I'm not a fan of churches, but this place with incredible energy! There I want to meditate, to think and to be alone with yourself.

  • Must visit. Experience-she dominates over all poberezhem, on the walls of her and feel morale. At the very top of a tiny, open windswept Chapel of the Iveron icon of the mother of God, be sure to stop by and ask for assistance and protection for themselves in your affairs. Right under her wonderful inexhaustible source-well. Be sure and take a drink out of the water with them. You can and oblit'sja, but don't do it near-depart a little further-there are for this area. The water is very tasty and fresh. Where such a large amount of clean fresh water at the top of the mountain? It is absolutely not clear miracle. I was late autumn foliage drifts were. beautiful, but on the slopes outside tracks is not poguljaesh'. A lovely balsamic odor from fallen leaves. Then you can stroll down to the 3 gorges of the boiler, which is directly behind the mountain. The road to the top, you can cut a little, if you go along the street that goes up behind the entrance to the lobby of the new Athos cave station. Entrance to the fortress is worth 150 rubles.

  • 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.
  • It is always interesting to visit places where there is a fortress on the Hill is an observation deck, and an opportunity to learn about local history. Before the first defensive zone (of the three) can be reached by car, and then have to climb on the serpentine. The fortress itself is small, preserved some buildings and monastery where monks still live. The tower can climb anyone offering wonderful and expansive views of the sea on one side and on the village-on the other. Posprashivaja the locals, you can discover the historical importance of this place, myths and facts, that is always more interesting than reading articles on the Internet. Entrance fee, about 150 rubles a ticket issued official, feeling that "cashing in", all as you normally would to visit State institutions history or culture. In combination with a visit to the cave temple and relaxing on the beach-creates a great impression from visiting of new Athos.

  • Right after the cashier across the road to the fortress of tensioned chain at the level just above the knee. The visitor is forced to climb it. Daughter 10 years raised leg low, and dropped rasshibla thigh. I asked the cashier do so pull chain? In response heard swearing and that I should keep the child himself. Through the floor mat. And chain to jeeps not went need. Apparently dug poles-it's too hard. Getting good. The fortress went up, the view is really nice. There is a frank new instead of restoration. A lot of garbage underfoot. For that charge, it is not entirely clear. If it were not for the rudeness of protection put alot. Honestly warned the guard that will describe the situation in response over the Internet. Said they do not care about. Not even apologized.

  • My opinion is that the only thing which kept the Abkhazians is that given the nature of this all by themselves is not appreciated! Entrance to this zapavednik in 2016 year worth 150 USD per person. Inexpensive, but still money. Everywhere some debris lying bottles, napkins, etc. Hence nobody cleans. Climb to the top near the towers also bassist could ever want. Climbing itself just Tin nor the handrails any tether at no what can be grasped. In general money take, and do nothing to keep everything in proper form. But go there worth at least because of this incredible species that opens on new Athos, the sea and the mountains.

  • While waiting for their turn in the cave on foot to go this decided the fortress. Views from the Tower opens fascinating. On the territory of the fortress there is an inexhaustible well with water.
