  • Lighthouseman's Profile Photo

    by Lighthouseman Written Oct 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For about in 10 km way from Golubitskaya near Temruk town is situated Millitary Museum. It is called "Millitary Hill". This is an open-air museum about Russian defense technology of World War II. You will see and touch by your hands an innumerable quantity of tanks, battle-planes, warships, cannons, helicopters, locomotives, mines etc.
    I reccomend you go there only if the sky is cloudless. This is a pretty god chance to ge wet through if the rain suddenly starts . There isn't any cover.
    I don't precisely remember an entrance prise, but it is about U$1 for person. There is convenient parking, souvenirs' kiosk and snack-bar.

Though we lived only 5 minutes walking from the beach we preferred to go to Dagomys – a suburb of Sochi which is located 12 km from its centre. It took us half an hour and we found ourselves on almost empty...
