Private Tour to Waterfall Polikarya & Cultural and ethnographic complex My Russia

Dear travelers!

I am glad to offer you a wonderful tour to the waterfall 6000 ft above the sea-level. It 'll be unforgettable! You'll see how beautiful Sochi mountains and landscapes are!

We'll use 4 ski-lifts to go that high and enjoy a nice walk in the relict woods, and to get to one of the most beautiful waterfalls, Polikarya in Sochi's ski-resort Gorky Gorod .
Afterwards we'll move to another ski-resort called Roza Khutor, enjoy a wonderful local meal at the restaurant and have a promenade along the picturesque embankment of the river Mzymta.

We'll also attend the Cultural and ethnographic complex My Russia to see Russia in miniature, to enjoy bell-ringing , to learn more about Russian culture and architecture, to see how rich and diverse they are!

You'll have a wonderful day-trip!!
