  • zero Abrau. The most beautiful and most mysterious lake of Krasnodar region. Okutanye legends turquoise water framed by mountain ranges. For a long time there is a beautiful legend about love Shepherd of Durso and rich beauty of Abrau. The girl's parents did not want to hear about the poor bridegroom. Once rich arranged a feast, at which, for the sake of fun, throwing bread cakes on Earth. For the desecration of bread Allah punished the highlanders and failed underground village with all residents. On the site of the village formed the Lake. Beauty managed to escape. During the unhappiness she was his lover of Dyurso. Back and not finding his AUL, the girl threw herself from a cliff into a lake. She drowned and ran on water as on zerkaluk the opposite shore in search of loved ones. But finding no one went back. What happened next with the beauty of Abrau and a shepherd of Durso, nobody knows. Since then, the place where the girl ran, formed the Moon path, which can be seen at night. In winter, this track freezes last. There are modern theories of emergence of lakeside. Some scientists believe that the Lake was formed as a result of karst sinkhole Lake, others believe the remainder of the Cimmerian Bosporus, the third basin suggest the emergence of a Lake as a result of selivyh flows and landslides. We love to come to the Lake in the spring, when you can enjoy tishino ...

  • a truly relaxing place by the Lake with wonderful views of the surrounding landscape, I advise you take a water voyage! Wonderful excursions to the factory of sparkling wines, cheap food in the local cafes, and just wander around the village. By car from Novorossiysk approximately 40 minutes drive.
