Abkhazia is a partially recognized state in the Transcaucasus, bordering Russia and Georgia. Sokhumi is the capital of Abkhazia. The country attracts even the most sophisticated travelers with its nature — giant mountains covered with centuries-old trees, impetuous waterfalls and rivers, clear lakes, and, of course, the Black Sea. Tens of thousands of tourists annually enjoy the clean sea and bright sun at sea resorts (Gagra, Pitsunda, Gadaut, New Athos). You can see the smallest river in the world and the deepest caves on Earth in Abkhazia. Ancient Caucasian customs are still honored here. Local residents will never let a guest go hungry and without drinking domestic wine. Abkhazian dolmens (burial structures) are even older than the Egyptian pyramids. The country can also boast of its Great Wall, 160 km long.
