    Krasnaya Polyana General

    Krasnaya Polyana (meaning "Red/Beautiful Glade) is located in the Western Caucasus with a base elevation of 560 meters along the Mzymta River in about 40 kilometers from its influx into the Black Sea in Adlersky City District of Sochi. My fondest memory about Krasnaya Polyana emerges from the beautiful day we spent there in August of 1977 swimming...

  • Rafting on the river Mzymta

    Krasnaya Polyana Sports & Outdoors

    Another possibility of a extreme sport is rafting on the river Mzymta that comes from Krasnaya Polyana, where the "mailinki (small) Mzymta" meets the "bolshaya (big) Mzymta". The river is known to be very changing. One moment it's a peaceful mountain creek and suddenly (after hard rain in the mountains) is swells up to be a all destructive force of...

    Tuapse in 1985

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Nov 4, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tuapse is the first town on the coast of the Black Sea which we can see if we arrive to the Russian South Caucasus by train from other parts of Russia. The train is passing through a lot of tunnels and at last you will see the sea! It means you’re in Tuapse - the northern center of a resort zone which extends south to Sochi.
    I saw it many times out of a train window from in 1960th and 1970th until I got an opportunity to see in reality in September of 1985.
    The scientific conference was held there and I could take part in it to combine business with pleasure. It was the end of September and it was already cold in Moscow. But the resort season was going on in Tuapse and I was lucky to swim in the warm sea and sunbathe in the breaks of the conference.
    But the fondest memory about that my trip was how I could come back home when it came to its end. I couldn’t buy a ticket on plane to Moscow! No one ticket on planes for several days! Unsleeping night in the airport of Adler. I bought a ticket to Mineral’nyye Vody. No tickets to Moscow there as well! I bought a ticket to Saratov. And only after two additional flights I bought a ticket Saratov-Moscow! What an adventure! Amazing?
