If you are tired of resort cities, but you want to go to the sea, this route is just for you! On the way to the sea you will not only visit the most interesting wine museum, but also find yourself in a real pink paradise - the lotus valley. But bathing in the sea you will not stop, as further bathing in mud volcano Hephaestus is planned!
If you take beach shoes and more towels, you have a lot to bathe.
The first stop on our journey will be the Wine Museum. Here you will be told about the history of winemaking and technology of making wine drinks. It is better to plan an individual excursion in advance, and you can do it by phone, indicated on the official [site](http://lefkadiavalley.ru).
After a long journey you should rest and have a leisurely lunch at the oriental restaurant Red Krill.
So we got to one of the main attractions of this route - Lotus Valley. Flowers of this amazing plant reach fifteen centimeters in diameter and amaze with their beauty, and the diameter of the leaves reaches eighty centimeters. We advise you to go to the Lotus Valley during the flowering period - from July to August.
When the lunch heat drops, you should go to the sea to swim in warm water and lie in the sun. What could be better?
Mud volcano Hephaestus is the most popular in Taman, despite its second name - Rotten Mountain (because of loose, fragile soil). Bathing in the crater of the mud volcano is not only a rare entertainment, but also an extremely useful recovery procedure. As far back as 1896, volcanic mud was studied for its curative properties and the analysis confirmed the content of iodine, selenium, boron, bromine and other useful trace elements.
It's worth a tight dinner, as we have a long way home.
We will make a stop in Slavyansk-on-Kuban to stretch a little and admire the fountain with a beautiful backlight.
