  • Arriving in new Athos, be sure to take the Iberian Mountain, explore the ruins of the fortress of Anacopia fortress is located in the Iberian Mountain in new Athos. This great fortification 4-7 century. The road to the mountain starts from the cave complex and goes up, everything is becoming steeper and steeper. Better to go to the mountain in a comfortable athletic shoes or the camera or camera be sure to take with you. Beautiful scenery, dense thickets of trees and the road leading to the traveller serpentine fortress entrance to the fortress of Anakopijskuju. The mountain is a wonderful overview of new Athos, mountains, sea. If you can climb to the top floor of the Tower, the entire fortress can be seen from above. This is a great excursion for the whole family.

  • We went from the caves to the fortress on foot with a child 5 years of age in January))) Outing took about 2:00 at one end. We went slow, admired the views along the way, growing tangerines. Had to climb up the Hill, sometimes steep. Entrance to the 150 rubles, kids free. The fortress itself 6-11 century. You can enter the Tower, 4 floors, stunning views from the top. In the Center there is a small chapel. You can bring candles, they are not for sale. Recommend that you bring a bottle of water, you can dial from a mountain well. Written there the Holy source. Well it is handwritten. Even if you go by car to the entrance to the territory, yet have to go somewhere kilometer before the top.

  • 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.
