Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Abandoned military unit, open-air pool and sauna.

The way to the mountains is not close, but interesting. On the way you will meet a 300-year-old tulip tree and the highest bridge in Russia, impressive viewing platforms and cafes with the best dumplings on the coast. In Tuapse we will try to penetrate the abandoned military unit. The highlight of today's program is the recreation center "Dobrynia" with a heated outdoor pool and a Russian sauna.


Тюльпанное Дерево

The tulip tree in Golovinka has existed for almost 300 years: it was able to survive lightning and other natural disasters. It is believed that touching the tree charges positive energy, which will protect you from troubles and diseases.

The Tooth Slit viaduct.

The Zubova Shchel viaduct is the highest bridge in Russia. It stretches over the picturesque gorge of the same name in the Lazarevsky district. The bridge is 84 meters high and 577 meters long. To admire the bridge from the outside, you will have to pull off the main highway and make a solid hook, but the views from the car window are also quite good.

Podvesnoy Most

Do not be lazy to get to the suspension bridge over the Psezuapse River in Lazarevsky. The 100 meter long wooden bridge is in emergency condition, but it is still an impressive spectacle and a kind of attraction. It is also a great place for selfies!

Monument plane "L-410"

They say the plane L-410 - and now a monument - was presented to the sanatorium "Shift" Joseph Kobzon. The model of the aircraft was developed in the late 1960s by the Czechoslovak company Let. The main customer of the aircraft was the Soviet Union, but it was also supplied to Brazil, GDR, Libya and other countries.


Stop for a moment to admire the views of the village of Yuzhny and the mountains from the observation deck, which will be right along the way.


To taste the most delicious dumplings in the world, you have to go to Tuapse. Don't give up the pleasure of eating cod in cream, squid and marinated beef salad at the same time. For dessert, dumplings again, now with raspberries and custard. The cafe is open daily from 09:00 to 23:00.

Abandoned military unit at Cape Kadosh.

On Cape Kadosh in Tuapse there is an unusual place: a destroyed camp and the remains of a military unit. Militarization of this area began back in the First World War. In the 40's an underground defense system was built on the mountain - there were warehouses and an "infirmary" for exercises. After the war, Kadosha was home to nuclear-powered missiles. Today only a small part of the dungeons is available for inspection. They are in a dilapidated state, but still interesting for history lovers.

Source of mineral water

After a long journey it would be nice to take a break and drink delicious mineral water right from the spring on the outskirts of Khadyzhensk. Iodobromine water from local springs is useful for a number of diseases.
