Adygeya

Adygeya

In Adygea one can hardly find peaks that experienced climbers intend to conquer, intense parties or cutting-edge architecture. But the flow of tourists here is increasing every year. So the region is among the five most attractive places in Russia. What is its secret? Maybe, its unique nature, rich history and fabulous flowers are the reason. A local specialty is flowers, especially Crimean roses and lavender, grown for scent. On the marshy floodplain along the Kuban River, some 20,000 acres (8,000 hectares) have been reclaimed for market gardening.

The Republic of Adygea is considered one of the smallest subjects of the country, which plays right into traveler’s hands. In a couple of days one can see Alpine meadows covered with herds of cows and horses, cascades of waterfalls-almost like in Scandinavia, and carved granite canyons that resemble American ones. Authentic auls where gray-bearded elders live the same way as their ancestors a couple of centuries ago, early human settlements, dolmens and mounds- all can be easily found at the territory of the Republic.
