The Black Sea coast Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see


The Russian part of the Black Sea coast has always been the most popular Russian holiday resort during more than hun­dred years. Warm Black Sea and the Caucasian mountains blocking up the northern winds create here a special microcli­mate. Here the swimming season lasts from May till October, and in summer the water temperature reaches 26 centigrade degrees.

The main resort centers of the Black Sea coast of Russia are Sochi, Anapa and Gelendzhik.

Sochi is often called the resort capital of Russia. Every year millions of people come here for a vacation. Sochi is also well known for its unique mineral water and curative mud.

Anapa is a perfect family and children's resort. Here you'll find  wide sandy beaches and the plen­ty of sunny days (more than 280 sunny days per year). This pleasant environment enabled Anapa to become the famous "children's" resort.

Gelendzhik is also well suited for family leisure. It is a comfortable resort with picturesque landscapes and quiet slow atmosphere of life.

The mounting-skiing resort Krasnaya Polyana (Red Glade) is locat­ed in the mountains of Caucasus not far from Sochi. Every year it becomes more popular not only for mountain-skiing fans, but also for fans of the ecological tourism.
