#3 of 13 in Things to do in New Athos
Begun in the 2nd century, Anacopia Fortress has the power to transport visitors back in time. The tourist site, partially restored to its ancient glory, features a Roman-style tower offering sweeping views of the nearby city, the sea, and the slopes of the region's mountains. The small Christian church near the tower features early Christian paintings and symbols. Mind the steep steps and prepare for the climb by wearing a good pair of shoes.

  • The Ancopyyskaya fortress is located in Abkhazia in the new Athos. Why is it written in Georgia? A couple of days ago we were walking to the fortress. Passed 100 floors. The road to the mountain and in the heat did not bother us. The fortress is located at an altitude of 344 meters above sea level. Thought she'd be a little more:) Entrance to the territory paid: 200 rub. per person. Before you visit the fortress, read the history of its creation. Very interesting. Stones of 5-7 century.... Uuuuh..... Impressions Mass! I advise everyone.

  • At the entrance to the park you need to pay 200 rub + 100 rubles for parking car. Walking uphill 40 minutes. At the top you can go to the tower and climb to the top. Autumn is a beautiful sight: you can see the monastery, the Sea, the city and the mountains. Would recommend for a visit. The nature is magnificent.
