A castle in the Green Grove with a private guide


Is Sochi just a resort and Olympic city or has it got a historical value? The answer is found when going to one of its famous destinations, the Green Grove on the slope of Mount Akhun. It is located in a picturesque place within the city limits. The Akhun is the highest point in the city, 663m above the sea level. After the construction of Akhun road thousands of visitors have got the opportunity to admire a fabulous view from the observation tower which is on top of the mount. As for Stalin's villa it has become accessible for the visitors since the 80s and has preserved the atmosphere of the 30s. So, this is a trip for the lovers of history and nature. A cup of tea from an authentic Russian samovar is your award after descending the Akhun tower. While driving to the main destinations you will also be able to get a glimpse of a city.
