Sail Rock, Praskoveyevka

#2 of 13 in Parks in Gelendzhiksky District
Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Look for Sail Rock by the beach, so slim that it resembles a giant biscuit dipped in the sea. Some 30 m (100 ft) tall and 20 m (65 ft) long, the rock has a width of barely 1 m (3 ft) and stands almost vertical. Research shows that it was once much longer, but has eroded over time. This monument of national importance was once reportedly shot at by battleships; however, they failed to bring it down. Notice the one large hole near its base: the only evidence of these attacks. You can pause for a break at the beach that surrounds it. For Sail Rock and beyond, use our Praskoveyevka trip tool to get the most from your Praskoveyevka vacation.
