Enjoy views of the city, seacoast, and snow-capped mountains from the top of The Observation Tower on Akhun Mountain. The Romanesque-like tower was built in 1936. Standing 30 m (98 ft), it can be seen from the center of Sochi. On the way up, look for a carved wooden sculpture of animals topped with a stork nest. If you're hungry after the climb, head to the nearby restaurant, which is decorated with stained-glass windows and offers local delicacies.

  • In short, as always it seems to me that we could do better. Well don't we ennoble territory ((of course, climb the tower and see the Sochi-is unforgettable, but somehow all those smelly stalls spoil the impression as a whole. Do not try to buy back the special tour! Take the car out and drive themselves. Well, or ask someone that you were traveling companions for Benz))

  • One of the oldest landmarks of the city of Sochi, once served as a defensive structure and is currently delighting tourists with excellent views of the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus.

  • This is the only place where you want to go back. Sunset is simply gorgeous. Always feel unreal power when you have the entire Sochi on the Palm, and the sea and the mountains.
