Parks · Ski Areas · Theme Parks
Situated in Southern Russia and known as the "Granary of Russia," Krasnodar Krai offers travelers Mediterranean-style beach resorts as well as popular ski centers. Abundant in natural resources, the territory of this region has been inhabited by various tribes and peoples since ancient times. The Kuban River runs straight through the center of Krasnodar Krai, dividing its territory into the plains of the northern part and the more exotic landscapes of the Black Sea coast and the stunning Caucasus Mountains. A biosphere reserve on the alpine slopes of the Western Caucasus is a World Heritage Site and home to the European bison, a nearly-extinct species that was recently reintroduced from captivity. Nature enthusiasts will also love lakes, waterfalls, mineral waters, and caves along the Laba River. On the other hand, nearly 1,500 monuments and memorials dedicated to important battles and heroes of World War II provide numerous sightseeing opportunities for history lovers.
