From the highest point you can park your car it would take you another 30 minutes to walk the rocky road to the Anacopia Fortress that will provide you with lovely views over New Athos. I strongly advise wearing either running or hiking shoes because the road is partially destroyed with sharp rocks. Mind your step all the time. There's a well inside the fortress, don't be afraid to use it, the water is clean and safe to drink.

The gigantic cave at New Athos is a popular tourist attraction so be sure to get your tickets ahead of time. The tour is quite good, full of cool damp air, stalagmites and stalactites and black dynamite and campsite and cellulite but worth seeing and experiencing. The underground lake looks frosty to swim in and it won’t take long to get through but is a neat experience for the area.

This huge Orthodox Cathedral and its garden grounds and scenic location near the seaside on a high hill is quite impressive and breathtaking. The interiour is well adorned with frescoes and icons too. The multi-domed architecture is sublime and divine.
This is a short 15 minute drive from central Sukhumi. The little hydro-electric power plant to supply the monks with power to read their scriptures at night is quite innovative and inventive.
I was not there at the right time to hear the bells ring in the 50 foot tower. Maybe next visit!

Nice place, reasonable picture spot, stop over for lunch or come here if you have some time to kill before going to New Athos cave, but as a waterfall, it is not much.

just off the main national road, it has a couple of snack bars, there is where just married couples take their photos, often with local music and dancing (mainly on weekends)

Очередное не восстановленное место, навивающее грусть и печаль. 20 минут хватит на осмотр сооружений и фотографирования. Бесплатные декорации для Сайлент Хилл и Сталкера.

The summer residence of a man like Stalin was not high on my list of things to see when doing our trip to the Caucuses this summer but one of my uncles is a WWII expert and has never been to this particular piece of WWII and Russian history so I said I would go and report back. The place is quite beautiful in a pristine and memorable location, with spectacular views out of the windows. The interior was a lot more subdued than I imagined it would be, lots of wood, the bedrooms were cozy and seemed like a place I would enjoy spending part of my summer in. Still the memory of the man and his plans are hard to shake so once you have done the tour of the home, take 10-15minutes outside with the sea air to clear your juju.

Была в ноябре и к сожалению это время уже не стоит - холодно, скользко и нельзя искупаться... Но очень красиво, обязательно приду летом. Как всегда жалко погибшие самшиты - такая трагедия из-за недобросовестных людей, купивших для Олимпиады растения, зараженные огневкой - все самшиты на побережье погибли. Такие величественные были деревья. В горах видела и живые, надеюсь, что возродятся и внизу.
