Gelendzhik

3.5
Situated along a Black Sea bay, the town of Gelendzhik is one of Russia's most popular summer destinations. Though the town has a long history dating back to ancient times, it wasn’t until the Soviet era that this location was developed into a spa site. Nowadays, thanks to its long stretches of clean beaches, this bayside resort attracts visitors from Russia and abroad. Beyond the shoreline, you'll discover waterfall chains, beautiful natural surroundings, and the largest water park in the country. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Gelendzhik and add them to your vacation plans using our Russia road trip website.
