This place is really amazing, here is the this ghost city that is totally open to the public, you pay a small fee to walk around. There is an Ossetian tower there that has been restored and you can climb up inside.
I want to share with you this time instead of mysterious world, few know. City of the dead dergv (Dargavs, Dargavs dergav) which is actually a collection of tombs from the 18th century near the village of dergv, this is an ancient cemetery where people lived in bury their loved ones with clothes and their belongings. The cemetery contains almost 200 fragments of ancient stone, unfortunately not everyone survived. Today it is a place of affordable care to keep the Russian heritage. The Valley itself is amazing in its beauty and power and extends to a length of 17 km and a width of up to 10 km in the Valley crossing the streams also out tbilion dergav village and take care of-rabigdon. The Valley itself is in South Ossetia-Russia. And not exactly easy access. We started in msaino through the shared border of Georgia and Russia. Moved lengthy bureaucratic processes until the long-awaited moment in which we approved to enter Russia. From there we drove to the city and that city oladi Caucasus stamped out of the way. Ovladi Caucasus found a driver that took us all the way to dergav. And be sure to adjust again the same way. This I call the same way the dead through the Caucasus areas. Among ancient abandoned villages, and a primitive villages populated the cows and sheep and ichriham, the ancient towers that are common to that region circa. This is the only way dominates this area. And who comes her way should return it again. Ostianim say the cemetery.
It is difficult to describe the impression of the place. Very big, beautiful, quiet, reasonably priced.
Place simply fascinates with its beauty and zagadachnostju, input 50 rubles, you can work around for half an hour, within almost every crypt still lie the remains of people, the only minus 14 km along a dirt road, but kind of Super.
Place the open graves. In Windows seen bones and skulls. Impressionable people is not recommended. The symbolic entrance fee-1 EUR
