I have long wanted to write a note about the Caucasus, about places of power and generally speaking. The topic is quite extensive, as I have been there many times, and accordingly there is a lot to tell. But today, about the dolmens of the Krasnodar Territory. Briefly about what it is and where they are easiest to see. For whom these places pop, do not blame me ...

Dolmens of the Krasnodar Territory
Dolmens are stone constructions built in4-2 millennia BC (dates are different), it is not clear by whom, and it is not clear why. They are constructions of stone slabs of sandstone of large mass, or carved into the rock, usually with a portal (inlet). Dolmens come in different shapes: rectangular, round, trapezoidal. There are more than 2,500 of them in the Caucasus, some are destroyed, some are in inaccessible areas, and some are close to resort towns. Unfortunately, until the 50s, the dolmens of the Krasnodar Territory were not studied and were pulled away by local residents or destroyed. Many of the dolmens and now are not protected by the state.
There are many theories about the destination.dolmens. I always visited the dolmens of the Krasnodar Territory on my own, but a couple of times I managed to overhear guides. Naturally, one of the theories is some kind of funerary structures, like the Egyptian pyramids. And one of the options for sticking inside the body was its softening with cunning compositions, so that it would creep into the hole-portal. There was some theory related to altars, I don’t remember the details. One of the guides pushed the theory that these were houses of little dwarfs, either joking or smoking something. There is also a theory that people went to dolmens to meditate for eternity, plunging into a state of somatic (trance, going into the fourth dimension) to pass on knowledge to their descendants, and it was possible to communicate with them by entering meditation. For what actually dolmens were built, no one will say for sure. But just for some serious purposes. Even now it is difficult to grind and fold plates using modern equipment, and to make a dolmen in a rock is generally how it was necessary to be bothered.
Most of all popular dolmens in Gelendzhik: Mount Nexis. village Renaissance, Pshada and on the way to them. Some of them I noted on dolmen map. There are also dolmens, in the area of Tuapse, Ashe, Lazarevsky and Sochi. But closely located can be counted on the fingers.
Tour or on your own
You can go on a trip, or you canon their own. The second option is closer to me, as for comfort it is not much different, but it is very different in price, and there is an opportunity to plan time yourself. If we are talking about the dolmens of Gelendzhik, then buses from Gelendzhik to Renaissance and Pshada run about 10 times a day from the lower (old) bus station, and the fare costs about 20-40 rubles. Entrance to the territory of the dolmens about 100r. Also, the advantage of an independent visit is that you can stay near the dolmens for as long as you want, and not as much as the guide took. Place of power after all. You can come in the morning and leave in the evening, almost everywhere there is a cafe and the opportunity to plunge into the river.
In some places you can come to a longertime limit and stand up with a tent nearby. I can also advise, when it comes to a few days, to come at the end of spring, at the beginning of summer, people will be exactly a little bit, and already warm.
The sensations from dolmens are different, from different people. It depends on the goals of the visitor, on his imagination, on the mood, on the knowledge of himself. For many, they are places of power, where desires are fulfilled, and answers to questions come. I noticed for myself that I get an answer not to the asked question, but to the hidden one, that is, the one that actually turns out to be more important. I may have been inventing everything myself, but why not? Anyway, answering the tormenting questions is somehow necessary. But the feeling of calm and some kind of lightness is there for sure, though not everywhere.
To believe or not to believe in the fact that there is a certain energy near the dolmens depends only on you.
