    Caucasus Biosphere

    by crazyman2 Written Oct 8, 2009

    If you are not familiar with European deciduous woodland then read on. If you know what to expect then check my tourist trap entry!

    About 35 traffic-free minutes from Sochi port there is a Biosphere reserve. Our tour party from the ship consisted of mostly Americans and Mexicans who appreciated the oaks, the old yew, the mosses, lichens, hazels, beeches and so on.
    It's a woodland walk ---but on concrete paths. You are not allowed to leave the path!
    The guides: 'How old is this oak?' Guide 1 = about 600 years. Later, guide 2 = about 200 years!

    You will possibly see a butterfly or hear some birds ---but the wildlife avoids the din caused by the tourists.

    There is a museum (a few stuffed animals) and a small stall selling tat.
    Would I go again? NO WAY!
