Sochi

Sochi: a few days of spring vacation

Sochi is one of the most beautiful resort places in Russia. We usually go to this city in summer time when the beach season is opened. But we don’t see charm of this city in spring time. Sea, sun, mountains, waterfalls, blossoming trees…What else do you need to enjoy life?!

So, there are a  lot of different excursions here, but if you are going to enjoy this place without tour guides you should know the most beautiful and amazing places in this city.

1. Parks

Dendrarium (arboretum)

Perhaps it is the greatest and the most beautiful park in Sochi. The arboretum consists of two parks — upper and lower. At the top you can climb by cable car. In the upeer park you can see plenty of different trees, flowers and beautiful shrubs.

4. Agura waterfalls

Agur gorge is one of the most picturesque places in Sochi. But the route to the waterfalls isn’t easy. That’s why you should wear comfortable sports shoes. Walk along the bottom of the picturesque gorge of the river Agura takes from one hour to four, depending on what and how you want to look at.
