Head to the top of the world at Akhun Mountain
Akhun Mountain has long dominated the skies surrounding Sochi, a Russia resort town along the Black Sea. However, it was not until 1935 that a modern road reached this imposing natural feature. Immediately following the completion of the paved road to Akhun Mountain, builders set about erecting an observation tower near its summit.
Today, the 30-metre (100-foot) observation tower atop Akhun Mountain makes it one of the city's best attended attractions. The vantage point atop the mountain lets visitors see far off into the distance of the Black Sea, plus more mountains in the Caucasus Range.
Guests of the Akhun Mountain will have their breath taken away by the views, but should always remember to take photos of the gorgeous views they encounter there.
