Tsey Alpine Resort

Reviewed By ShilohinBC - Lower Mainland, BC

Air is so clean and fresh. One can see the high Mountains with large glaciers. There are many interesting places around the area such as the Rekom Shrine, the town of Mizur, the village of Ursdon where there one can walk up to the old cemetery with small crypts and towers set on the mountainside.

We stopped in and saw the Russia Orthodox Monastery, the monk who greeted us was nice gave us a short tour due to the construction work being done for restoration.

Mukhtarov Mosque (Sunnitskaya)

Reviewed By ShilohinBC - Lower Mainland, BC

Very unusual style built for a millionaire from Azerbaijan around 1900. Very colourful and based on Egyptian style. I was able to enter the Mosque (headcover required). Interior was being renovated while I was there so there were scaffolding everywhere. Located in a beautiful location next to the river.

City of the Dead

Reviewed By FilAmfighter1 - Torrance, California

This is the city of the dead, the place is something to see, at first I was like really but once I got here I found it really cool to check out. The watch tower is worth the climb. Very interesting over all, graves are open and things are kind of preserved.

Kosta Khetagurov Park

Reviewed By Mikhail Y

Большой аккуратный парк. Набережная, пруд. Здесь отдыхают и пожилые, и молодые, и совсем еще дети :-)
Позабавила манера юношей садиться на лавочки верхом :-) Зато лицом к сидящей рядом девушке :-)

Arkhonskiy Mountain Pass

Reviewed By AIBASHEV - Moscow, Russia

Мы проезжали Архонский перевал на автомобиле. Нас вез местный житель из Владикавказа. Он нам много интересного рассказывал по дороге в Цхинвал. Обратно мы пересекали на автобусе. Вообще это опасное место, постоянно сыпятся камни на дорогу и снежные лавины могут накрыть

Statue Saint George Is Coming Out Off The Rock

Reviewed By ShilohinBC - Lower Mainland, BC

Drove past this statue in the mist. Spectacular as it seems to fly out of the side of the mountain. Try not to miss as it was difficult for my driver to stop along the narrow and steep road.
