The Russian part of the Black Sea coast has always been the most popular Russian holiday resort during more than hundred years. Warm Black Sea and the Caucasian mountains blocking up the northern winds create here a special microclimate. Here the swimming season lasts from May till October, and in summer the water temperature reaches 26 centigrade degrees.
