Winery complex "Lefkadia Valley"

"Lefkadia Valley" is a huge winery complex, which is happy to welcome guests on its territory. You can come here to taste the wine at its place of production and learn how this or that taste is born. The territory of the complex is impressive: the original tower, from which you can see the whole valley with endless vineyards in the palm of your hand, the French garden, the magnificent lake Gechepsin, bridges and rotundas. There are several options for excursions in the "Valley", and the most useful and interesting of them are by bus (1.5-2 hours). The tour may include tasting of local wines and cheeses. It is important to remember that such excursions are only for groups of 5 people, so individual visitors are better to call the administration in advance.

Смотровая Анапа

At the entrance to Anapa we recommend to stop at the monument "Anapa - the beginning of the Caucasian mountains". The stone eagle was installed in 2013 on the first meters of the mountain chain stretching 1,100 kilometers to the Caspian Sea coast. The observation deck at the foot of the monument offers a panoramic view of the city and village of Su-Psekh.

Artsakh" cafe

You can have lunch in the "Artsakh" barbeque shop. Delicious meat, fragrant cakes that are cooked here, juicy cherries, grilled vegetables - the glory about this cafe has spread far beyond the boundaries of Su-Psekh.

Bald Mount Anapa

Finally, we go to the sea! But not just to the beach. Bald mountain is one of the most picturesque places in the vicinity of Anapa. From here you can enjoy wonderful views of the Black Sea, Big Utrish and the highway leading to it, the quarters of the resort of Anapa and the cozy Anapa Bay. It's easy to drive up to Bald Mountain. If you not only want to admire the rocks, but also to swim, you can go down the stairs of 800 steps to the water from here. The experience is not easy, but worth it: below is a beautiful rocky beach with the purest water.

Крест

On the hill behind Su Psekh in 2005 was established Bow Cross in honor of the 60th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. Near the Cross there is an exhibition and sale "Russian Bells", which presents more than fifty ancient and modern bells - reduced copies of the bells known in Russia. The exhibition was founded by the ataman of the Supsekh Cossacks - he brought from the plant in Voronezh a lot of old bells, which were just dusting in the hangar. That's when the idea to create an exhibition was born, in which the ataman was greatly helped by the director of the Voronezh bell factory. The exhibition is open every summer from early June to mid-September. Every Friday from 18:00 to 20:00 there are calls - an amazing spectacle!

Nirvana

For dinner we'll go to the village of Succo, the restaurant "Nirvana". According to many visitors, this restaurant has no competitors in the whole village. Beautiful serving, friendly staff, competently selected music - not to mention the cuisine worthy of all praise. Reservation of tables by phone 8 (918) 485-30-33.

Замок Львиная Голова

It's show time! A great end of the day will be a visit to the Park Extreme equestrian theater. Its main feature is the show "Knight Tournament", which is held in the majestic castle "Lion's Head". This building with its coats of arms, jagged walls and lattice gates is iconic in itself, although the show has not pumped up. The Battle of the Long Hair Knights has been reconstructed based on famous historical events and legends. Stage costumes - armor, ringlets, shields - add to the show of realism. The costumes, by the way, are made on the territory of the complex, in the smithy. Horses participate in the show - they also have their own role in the performance. The show is held on certain days from June to September, at 10:30 and 21:00. In May the show can only be seen on Saturdays, at 15:00. The ticket costs 600 rubles (children's ticket - 400).
