This is a trip for those who have long dreamed of disconnecting from everyday problems, bustle and spend the weekend with family. The program of this trip will make you remember what a real "children's delight" of people of any age is! You can enjoy the beauty of the Krasnodar region, visit the unforgettable Abrau Durso park, plunge into the world of fairy tales, as well as see with your own eyes real knight tournaments.
On the first day of the trip we will visit the archaeological museum, where we will be able to see the ancient excavated city of Gorgippia, watch a performance with sea animals in the dolphinarium "Nemo", walk through the walnut grove, meet the sunset on the lookout area Utrish, and also try the cuisine of the restaurant "Mountain", the interior of which resembles a real medieval castle!
The first point of our cultural program will be the open-air archaeological museum Gorgippia, located in the historical part of Anapa. Horgippia is a once ancient city, which, according to scientists, was burned already in 238 AD. Today you can see only a small excavated part of the former city: several blocks and the main street, wells and defensive structures. In the same museum building a tourist can see marble sculptures, weapons, coins and even jewelry of that time. Such excursion to the past will not leave you indifferent!
Not far from the museum is the Jan Pizza Café, where you can have a delicious and inexpensive lunch. Despite the name of the facility, cafe's menu is not limited only to pizza, here you will find European, Caucasian and even Japanese dishes.
Well, now we can have some fun! Dolphinarium "Nemo" - a real find for a family vacation, because here you can not only see the performance of sea animals, but also swim and even take pictures with dolphins, take a dolphin therapy course, as well as visit the oceanarium. This pastime delights not only children, but also adults!
Peanut Grove is one of the local residents' favorite parks. You won't see the crowds of tourists or the many attractions like many of the major city parks, because this place attracts completely different people. For example, here you will find a huge rose garden, trees with walnuts, shady alleys and the main thing - the atmosphere of calm, which can be so difficult to find in resort towns.
The Utrish observation deck is a place with incredible sea views. Not far from there you can spread a blanket with a small picnic and meet the sunset.
Restaurant "Gorny" - a unique place, located in the village of Sukko, which will definitely surprise you not only with a great variety of delicious dishes of Russian cuisine, but also with its interior in the style of a medieval castle. In the evenings, live music is played here, which creates an incredible atmosphere that you won't even want to leave!
On the second day of our journey, we will be visiting a fairy tale! We will become spectators of a real knight tournament and feel the incredible atmosphere of the Middle Ages, visit an unusual museum "House upside down", as well as visit your favorite characters from children's tales and cartoons.
Today we will start with breakfast in the restaurant "Nirvana", where you can enjoy the cozy atmosphere and culinary delights on the open veranda of the restaurant.
Castle "Lion's Head" is a complex of entertainment that immerses viewers in the Middle Ages. The most spectacular event here is the tournament, where knights fight for the heart of beautiful ladies. The performance involves real masters of their craft: actors, magicians, acrobats and stuntmen. The performance itself starts at 10:30 am and lasts about an hour, after that there will be enough time to get acquainted with all the sights of the complex. For example, there's the Robin Hood shooting gallery, pottery workshop, tavern and souvenir shop where you can even be photographed in knight's armour or in theatre costumes.
Many tourists in the Abrau-Durso Park are attracted by gastronomic tourism and wineries, where in addition to tasting wine you can even learn the secrets of its production. However, this is not all that this place boasts. You can visit one of the favorite attractions of locals and tourists of all ages - "House upside down", which can safely be called not only a museum, but also a real attraction. All the things in this house are upside down, the floor is the ceiling and the ceiling is the floor, which completely breaks the picture we are used to. The park has a developed infrastructure, cultural and historical attractions, fountains, as well as many art objects that you can touch and even climb in them! For example, here you will find a gazebo that fulfills all desires: you only need to sit in it, perform certain actions and the mysterious wish will come true for sure! At the lake promenade you can hire a boat or take a touring boat ride. And if you are a true connoisseur of art, you should definitely visit the Media Art Center "Mars", which hosts exhibitions of talented contemporary artists and sculptors.
Berendeevo Kingdom - a park where you will see a lot of pets and wildlife, carved wooden huts, magical wells and even your favorite characters from children's cartoons and fairy tales. In the kingdom of Berendei there is amazing nature: river, forest, mountain slopes and the cleanest air. On the territory there are also small cafes, where they always cook excellent shish kebabs, and souvenir shops, where you can buy a small gift as a keepsake or a jar of local honey.
On the way home you can stop for dinner at the restaurant "Oshaley" where you can taste not only simple dishes of Russian cuisine such as homemade dumplings, pies and potato pancakes, but also try such unusual dishes as wild sturgeon steak, veal liver pancakes and venison stuffed cabbage. So you can rest assured that this place is worth your attention 😊...
