Sytyy Kot

The original name of the cafe is so attractive, you can't pass by. Breakfast here is inexpensive, and the variety of dishes will pleasantly surprise you.

Villa Victoria Wineyard


Krasnodar region wines have been very popular recently. So why not visit a private winery on the way to Anapa? Here you can visit the excursion (you should make an appointment in advance), taste both dining rooms and aged wines. Prices and quality are excellent, especially when compared to other wineries that bring groups with tourists. As a pleasant bonus, you can buy several types of cheeses that are made immediately.

Water Parks

In the afternoon you can go to the quite famous water park "Golden Beach". After a long journey, relaxing in the water is a great solution!

Пешков Стрит-кафе


There are a lot of restaurants near the water park, but I recommend to visit the "Peshkov Café". Here you will find everything you need for a pleasant dinner - quality service, pleasant interior design, relaxing music, and most importantly - very tasty fettuccini with shrimps and zucchini.
