What is the key attraction for travelers when choosing their next destination point? Amazing locations and impressions everybody is always in pursuit of.
Beautiful panoramic views are such key attractions of Skypark. The Caucasian mountain range, Akhtyr Gorge, the Mzymta River, the Black Sea, a trout farm and the Ship Rocks are just some of the beauties.
The park is located in Akhtyr Gorge with its arches rising 200 meters above the river. The gorge is about 2.5 kilometers long and is part of the Akhtsu mountain range. The Jurassic limestones on the slopes show the unusual route of the river. You will be fascinated even hearing this description. Just imagine what a traveler may see when looking at it from a bird's-eye view, standing on the longest suspension pedestrian bridge in Russia. Wow! OMG! Perhaps only similar exclamations can describe this delight.
Akhtyr Gorge hosts another natural wonder: the Ship Rocks. Their outlines resemble ships in a harbor. The legend says that in ancient times, when there was an ocean instead of the gorge, there was a pier instead of the rocks. This also explains the unusual name. The gorge vaults are strongly carstified, and host several caves, the most famous being Akhtyrskaya Cave, where the first settlements of primitive people were discovered. Neanderthals lived there 130 thousand years ago. We can say they were experts in beauty: the location they chose is one of the most picturesque in Sochi.
Bright-green summer, yellow-red spring, and incredible winter landscapes, no matter what season you come, each of them is unique. Skypark is in the Sochi National Park: here you can see the subtropical broad-leaved Colchis forest in all its glory. From the bridge, you can enjoy not only the beauty of Akhtyr Gorge, but also an amazing seascape.
