Sun, sea, market, relaxation

After two days of travelling around Makhachkala's distant and near surroundings and quite active walks one can relax. Yes, Makhachkala is not a resort town, but there is still the sea here. Don't forget about local cuisine and souvenirs (the best souvenirs from Dagestan are fruit, cheese and spices), and we will look for them in the market.
