Akhshtyrskaya Cave and Waterfalls
One of the most stunning natural attractions to be found in Sochi is the Akhshtyrskaya Cave and Waterfalls. Akhshtyrskaya Cave was discovered by French scholar E.Martel and is thought to have housed its first settlers almost 70 thousand years ago.
Although Sochi has vast spades of untouched land and natural beauty, the area has gone through a massive regeneration and there is a wide variety of choice when it comes to bars, restaurants and accommodation in Sochi.
Geographically, the Akhshtyrskaya Cave is the northernmost point in South Eastern Europe and is the place where Europe’s first ancestors lived.
Thanks to its long history, Akhshtyrskaya Cave is an atmospheric place. According to Greek legend, it is the very spot where Odysseus met the one-eyed Cyclops.
Unsurprisingly, the Akhshtyrskaya Cave and the awe-inspiring waterfalls which have been formed here are one of the most popular attractions in Sochi with tourists, and most guides and hotels in Sochi will be able to help visitors reach the area.
Visitors looking to experience more of Sochi’s natural beauty and see some of its wildlife should explore the Sochi National Park and the Sochi Aquarium during their stay.
The Radisson Hotel, Rosa Khutor
One of the most popular resorts in the Sochi area, the Radisson Hotel, Rosa Khutor, is the perfect spot for visitors to Sochi to base themselves whether they are looking for a beach or skiing holiday.
Found at the Rosa Khutor skiing resort in the heart of Krasnaya Polyana, the hotel can help guests arrange skiing trips or guided tours to areas of particular interest (like the Akhshtyrskaya Cave and Waterfalls).
But with a first class spa and fitness centre, not to mention a stylish bar and one of Sochi’s best restaurants, guests may never want to leave their hotel.
