  • It turned out that we are the only Arboretum in November. Last year almost twilight Threesome, this year-clear day four. But clearly understand that it is best to walk there alone, in good weather and very slowly. And best of all climb the observation tower on the ropeway (cable car station entrance on the opposite side of the resort, you have to pay 250 for the kanatku and r. r. 250 for a walk through the Arboretum), climb to the top of the Tower, and it offers excellent views of the city, the sea, the famous mountain Ahun, understand that this famous mountain is good, but spend time on her visit is not worth , then go down to the Park. On exiting the turnstile installed lookout tower apply your ticket and enter into the Arboretum. Look carefully, understand that you are pulling this aside and move there. Don't be afraid to get lost, all roads and paths lead down towards the exit of the Arboretum. Souvenir shops and snack bars are not as nazojlivy as in Riviera, they fit into the landscape and not too flashy. Fountains, small architectural forms 50-IES of the 20 b. carefully and lovingly restored and painted in shining silver color-dive into the past ... Families with children (two and more children) is unlikely to get the full pleasure, because children quickly tire of raznosortnaja Greens and small Zoo is too small, the adults vymotajut bored children)) here's a grandmother with her grandson, you can go to the simultaneous and useful study of exotic flora and fauna)) we walked, occasionally drawing attention to particularly outstanding plants, in a pleasant conversation is silence, clean and healthy air, problems and concerns they literally dissolved. Cheered on the suspension bridge walk)) course, in the heat of sensations and impressions will be totally other))

  • In Sochi, there were a lot of times, but no in the Arboretum. Decided to fill the gap. And we're not that donated and were ecstatic! And the name of this delight-Galina. Let me explain-it is our guide! Amazing man, who turned a simple walk in the beautiful park "in 1.5-hour an interesting, useful and incredibly funny tour! This was not just a banal recitation lecture, is felt as a man loves his job and takes pleasure in sharing with others. Highly recommend everyone to get acquainted with the Arboretum under her leadership! Galina, thank you and the entire staff of naiogromnejshee!

  • We were recently in Sochi, in early November. Very much like to visit the Park. Walked by and saw the cable. Then still did not know that it leads directly to the Park. We only learned at the cash paid for ropeway fares and entrance fees to the Park. Be sure to use the cable cars. Breathtaking views of the Park, the sea and the city. The truth is very quickly coming to your destination). Upon arrival, do not hurry to go down to the Park, up the spiral staircase takes you to the observation deck. A great place for enjoying views of the sea and the city, as well as for photographing. Cabin cableway brings you to the highest point in the Park, then you can go down the tracks. The Park collected many species of trees and plants. There is a mini zoo and a small lake with Black Swans. If you bring sandwiches, the bamboo grove can walk and sit on a wooden table. Be careful, the Park is the continuation of the second part. You must go through the underpass and attach to turniketam the original tickets. Therefore, do not throw the tickets immediately. We really liked the Arboretum.
