Bodies of Water · Landmarks · Waterfalls
Abkhazia is a separatist region and Russian ally along the Georgian Black Sea coast, with sub-tropical conditions and beautiful beaches. The coastline of this area is dotted with pine trees and majestic, snow-capped mountains. Following a war in 2008 against Russia, the country of Georgia lost territory in its defeat, and Abkhazia was among the those regions diplomatically recognized by Russia as a result. Volcanoes and botanical gardens are among the places to visit on a trip to this seaside area. The capital, Sukhumi, revels in the mild climate with its many beach resorts.
