This trip starts in Suchum and goes to Nizhniaia Eshera, and we promise that all lovers of wild nature and abandoned buildings will highly enjoy it! We'll go to the former Soviet Central Intelligence Agency Helth Centre which earlier of course was closed for mere tourists. Here was an entire town with its own cinema, swimming pool, park, post office, bank, tennis courts and boat station. But during the war between the Abkhazians and the Georgians the place was damaged and now nature takes everything back. And you can see incredible beauty and romance of decline in it!
Moreover we'll have a look at the cromlech and a site of ancient settlement near there - one of the most interesting memorials of the Epoch of the Greek colonization.
