Yes, it was a one-day excursion, but we got a complete idea of ​​rest in Abkhazia. In addition, many of our friends and friends went there, and supplemented our impressions.

There are in Pitsunda and architecturallandmark, the heritage of the Middle Ages - Pitsunda temple, built in honor of the Apostle Andrew the First Called. The temple, more resembling a castle, was built in the 10th century, which accounted for the rule of the Georgian king Bagrat of the third - from the dynasty of the ancient Georgian royal family - Bagration.

Until the 17th century, the temple was constantly improved andwas being completed until the danger of Turkish expansion hung over the city. At the time of the temple was abandoned, and only in the middle of the 19th century, it was re-engaged and consecrated in honor of the Assumption of the Virgin. Now there are evenings of organ music.

As for the history of the resort city itself,I must say that the first signs of human life in this place were recorded as early as the 4th c. BC Oe., where, later, the Greeks founded the city and the port of Pitiunt (Pitiunt). Until the beginning of our era, the city was part of the Pontic kingdom, and, starting from the 4th century, the center of Christianity in the Caucasus was founded here.

At the end of the 8th century, Pitiount entered the Abkhazian kingdom and remained there until the 17th century, when this land fell under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. Under the authority of the Russian Empire, the city fell only in the early 19th century.
