It is best to start exploring the Caucasus by visiting the Caucasian Mineral Waters. This wonderful corner of our homeland has attracted hundreds of thousands of people at all times. The great A.S. Pushkin, M.Y. Lermontov, L.N. Tolstoy, F.I. Chaliapin and many other people who left their mark on the history of Russia forever lived and worked here.

Exciting excursions to the mountain resorts of Dombai, the Elbrus region, the Chegem gorge, bathing in thermal springs, and acquaintance with national cuisine and traditions will forever make you adherents of the hospitable Caucasus.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Arrival, Pyatigorsk, Zheleznovodsk

    Arrival in Pyatigorsk.

    Check-in at the hotel (check-in from 14:00), things can be left in the luggage room at the hotel. 

    We recommend having lunch in advance, as there will be no such opportunity during the tour.

    Meeting in the hotel lobby with a representative.

    A tour of Pyatigorsk with a visit to Lermontov places: lake "Failure", Aeolian harp, Academic Gallery, Lermontov grotto, Lermontov baths, Flower Garden Park, Diana's grotto, Restaurant, Lermontov's duel place.

    Excursion to the "green pearl" KMV — Zheleznovodsk.

    The city is interesting from all sides. 

    He is proud of a small park that smoothly turns into a forest, the sad story of the Emir's Summer Cottage, the Pushkin Gallery proudly bearing its dome and trying to stretch out in a smile of peculiar pump rooms on tiny platforms, and of course his never-recurring Slavyanovskaya and Smirnovskaya water. 

    Being at the top of the Cascade staircase, it is difficult to resist exclaiming: "This is Peterhof!".

    Over the past two years, Zheleznovodsk has turned from a small provincial town into a European-level resort. 

    You will see the already famous FE Square, walk along the shore of the "30-ki" (a lake that attracts hundreds of vacationers every year) and descend the longest cascade staircase in Russia.

    And Zheleznovodsk is also a very "smart city". Why? You will learn about this on our tour.

    Return \ accommodation at the Pyatigorsk hotel. 

    Free time.
