Sukhumi

The capital of autonomous region Abkhazia, Sukhumi claims to be one of the oldest cities in the world. Ancient settlements from the Copper, Bronze, and Iron Ages stand around the city, as do burial grounds adorned with bronze axes, arrowheads, bracelets, and ceramics.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sukhumi: New Athos (Hall Railway Station Psyrtskha, Rock Shalter of Saint Apostle Simon the Zealot, &more). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Sukhumi Embankment, learn more about the world around you at Abkhazia State Museum, take in the views from Besleti Bridge, and identify plant and animal life at Sukhumi Monkey Nursery.

For photos, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Sukhumi online day trip planner.

Tbilisi to Sukhumi is an approximately 6.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of train and taxi; or do a combination of bus and taxi. The time zone changes from Georgia Standard Time (GET) to Moscow Standard Time (MSK), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gagra: Dormition of the Mother of God Church (in Gudaut'a), Beach Golden Shore (in Lidzava) and Stalin's Summer Residence (in New Athos). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Gegskiy Waterfall, admire the striking features of Abandoned Sanatorium Gruziya, make a trip to Park named after Prince Olderburgkiy, and enjoy the sand and surf at Pitsunda Beach.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Gagra online trip planner.

You can drive from Sukhumi to Gagra in 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in October, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can go by car back home.
