There are many boarding houses in Abkhazia, the most famous are in Gagra and Pitsunda. For treatment, they use water from local mineral springs - there are more than a hundred of them in the region. In combination with physiotherapy procedures and physiotherapy exercises, Abkhazian mineral water has a beneficial effect on the health of vacationers.
Abkhazia is located in the Transcaucasus. In the north, it borders on Russia, in the east - on Georgia, washed by the Black Sea. Most of its territory is occupied by mountains; the state consists of seven districts, the population is about 250 thousand people, the capital is the city of Sukhum. The country is rich in mineral waters, useful thermal springs, which attract tourists not only for active, but also for medical recreation. There are two airports in the republic (one of which is considered the best in the Caucasian region) and a seaport, automobile transport is well developed. Therefore, many of our compatriots prefer to rest in Abkhazia with pleasure. What a tourist from Russia needs to know before traveling to this country is a question that worries those who are interested in a useful and budgetary vacation.
The country is located in southern latitudes and due to the proximity of mountains and the sea is famous for its unique landscapes and favorable climatic conditions. Abkhazia is located in a humid subtropical zone, so the resort season is quite long - from May to September. Mountain snows and glaciers serve as a source for mineral waters. Lakes, rivers, reservoirs, coastal waters are the main natural wealth of the country. The republic is famous for its hot springs, mud baths, therapeutic pools, around which health-improving complexes are being built. The most famous of them is "Kyndyg", where there are swimming pools, showers, massage services are provided. There are many oak, beech, hornbeam forests in Abkhazia, where rare species of animals are found.
The Abkhaz Republic is multinational: in addition to the Abkhaz, there are Russians, Jews, Greeks, Armenians, Turks living in it. Local residents speak two languages - Abkhazian and Russian. In families, the patriarchal way of life has been preserved, providing for the subordination of the younger to the elder. Abkhazians are hospitable and polite people, they gladly receive guests, for whom there are even separate houses.
Tourists travel from Russia to Abkhazia by train, train or catamaran (message from Sochi-Gagra). The easiest route is through Adler. Usually planes reach this city in just 2.5 hours; by train, the journey takes up to two days. From Adler, tourists travel to the border by minibuses, taxi or transfer. Many vacationers prefer the latter option to avoid traffic jams. Compared to a minibus, a taxi has the advantage that it takes passengers on a free road.
The minibuses are working well enough inside the country. City bus transport is well developed in the capital. When entering the republic for 90 days, Russians do not need a visa. The main monetary unit is the Russian ruble, so the question of currency exchange automatically disappears.
The most popular holiday destination is Gagra, a city on the Black Sea coast. Its tourist infrastructure is considered one of the best in the republic: there is a beautiful Primorsky Park, laid out in the early 20th century, there are enough cafes, snack bars, bars and excursion bureaus on the streets. One of the main attractions of the city is the famous marble colonnade built in the Moorish style. Tourists willingly visit the already legendary Gagripsh restaurant, built of Norwegian pine. The blue lake with perfectly clear water is a visiting card of the area: picturesque waterfalls and an unusual landscape attract tourists from year to year. Lovers of history will be interested to look at the ruins of the castle of the founder of the Gagra resort, Prince Alexander of Oldenburg, and the ancient fortress of Abaat, founded in the 5th century.
