The Adler-Krasnaya Polyana highway was built over the river at the end of the 19th century, which is so high that its valley below seems to be an abyss.

At the beginning of the gorge on the left bank of the Mzymta River, it fits into the landscape of the Akhtsu tourist resort.

Restaurant with respectable and quiet interior. Lots of wood, white tablecloths, fresh flowers on tables, live fire in the fireplace. Open kitchen is the most fashionable trend of restaurateurs in the last few years, and here it is used beautifully, without interfering with the rest of guests. The concept of the whole institution is sharpened for European author's cuisine. The restaurant does not have a small wine list and a good bar. Very beautiful and exquisitely decorate cocktails.

The restaurant is open from 12 days to 12 nights.

Poyushchiye Fontany

Sunny city of Sochi is famous for its beautiful places. One such place is the fountain in the Olympic Park called "Olympic Bowl of Fire". Many call it the "Waters of the Olympic Plaza". The fountain was built to open and close the Olympic Games that took place in Sochi in 2014. After the end of the Olympic Games in Sochi, the fountain became a legacy of the last Olympics and is rightly considered a landmark of Sochi. At the moment, singing fountains of the Olympic Park every day delight the guests of the resort! A singing fountain in the Olympic Park is built in the form of a sculpture "Firebird" with a "fire crest and huge wings". A mythological bird from our folk tales. She has a long swan neck and fire wings that hug the bowl. At night, the park becomes truly fabulous, as the splashes of singing fountains in the Olympic Park turn into fireworks, which are created with the help of LEDs. Small shimmering stars appear on the water surface. It feels like the fountain reflects the night sky. To enhance the mystery and mystery of the performance on the surface of the fountain, a fog is blown out. Evening show of musical fountains is a unique spectacle.
