Gagra

Gagra ©
Once popular as a health resort during Imperial Russian and Soviet times, Gagra today attracts a small contingent of international visitors seeking ideal summer weather and its seaside promenade, which hugs the coastline of the Black Sea.
Explore Gagra's surroundings by going to Stalin's Summer Residence (in New Athos) and Yupsharskiy Canyon (in Bzipi). There's still lots to do: get outside with Goluboye Ozero, relax in the rural setting at Bee Garden Honey Yard, kick back and relax at Pitsunda Beach, and appreciate the history behind Sculpture Divers.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Gagra fast, fun, and easy.

Irkutsk, Russia to Gagra is an approximately 82-hour car ride. The time zone changes from Irkutsk Standard Time to Moscow Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Irkutsk in July, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 23°C in Gagra. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can go by car to Sukhumi.
