  • A great place for hiking and small hikes located practically within the city. You can get there by taxi. This is the most convenient way. Well, for lovers of long walks, you have two options: from Matzesta through the attraction of "Eagle Rock", or from the stop "Sanatorium" Sputnik ", through" the Caucasian AUL "Cafe and Agursky waterfalls. To return as well. Cons: Unfortunately there is no public transport. The nearest bus stop 8 km down.

  • The road to Big Akhun is my regular training cycle path. Despite heavy and endless "plowing" I am nevertheless enjoy the beauty and views. Who skated one understands. By car, in my opinion, not so much to consider, not to feel, not to absorb.

  • Liked it. Minus that 100 rubles entry. Essentially what to pay. Would another picture. Then it would be a pity and 150 rubles pay.
