What to see in Lazarevskoye and surroundings - list of attractions

Lazarevskoye - the very first resort on the Black Sea,where i got to be It was a long time ago in my childhood, at 3 years old. We went there several times and I waited every trip with a sinking heart. Perhaps that is why I have warm feelings for this village. Otherwise, it is rather ordinary, crowded during the season, with the railway near the beach. If you like to relax in quieter places, then it is better to rent a house in the neighboring villages. Sights can be visited wherever you live.

Well, if you do go to Lazarevskoye, then look at my post - A selection of cheap hotels with the best ratings and reviews. After all, it is better to book everything in advance, especially during the season, otherwise you will find something completely wrong on the spot that we would like.

What to see in Lazarevsky

Park of Culture

Recreation Park Lazarevsky was foundedback in the Soviet years, in 1975. It is located in the heart of the city, near the waterfront. The park is decorated with walking paths, flower beds, lawns, green alleys. Magnolias, eucalyptus trees, palm trees and rhododendrons - all these southern plants give shade on hot summer days, delight the eye and make walks in the park especially pleasant. In addition to a variety of exotic vegetation, the park is notable for attractions. It has the highest Ferris wheel in Russia, you can ride a roller coaster, play classic slot machines, visit the room of laughter and a shooting gallery - just like in Soviet childhood. Modern children's playground for kids here too. As in all entertainment places, there are many cafes, snack bars and stalls with all sorts of goodies. In general, the standard set of pleasures, especially characteristic of the southern resort town.

Ferris wheel

Ferris wheel in the Park of Culture and RestLazarevsky began work in 2012. At the moment it is the largest Ferris wheel in Russia, its diameter is more than 80 meters. A full turn the wheel makes in 8 minutes. From its highest point a wonderful view opens up on the coast of the Krasnodar Territory, up to Abkhazia. On the wheel there are closed and open cabins for six and four people respectively. It is better not to plant children in open cabins, as it is shaken by the wind, it is scary to sit there. In the evening, almost nothing is seen from the wheel, so it's not very interesting to ride after dark. For an additional fee before landing you can rent binoculars. Service, however, as in the whole park, and specifically on the Ferris wheel is not the most "European" in quality.

Ticket price: from 200 rubles

Waterpark "Nautilus

The water park is located near the Park of Culture andrecreation Lazarevskogo, on the banks of the river Psezuapse. Nautilus is already a pretty old water park (it opened in 2004) and looks worn. Attractions are not as exciting as, for example, in Golden Bay, butt joints are felt on the slides, and the area is small. But still in the heat it is a good place for a family rest. However, as elsewhere, there may be queues in the season and it is difficult to find a free deck chair with an umbrella, a life jacket or a rubber ring. In the water park there are 4 pools: swimming, with slides, for children, and a pool with an attraction "Tsunami", which is 14 meters high - quite an extreme entertainment. In the Nautilus there are no pools with waves, but the children's area is not bad. If you don’t compare the Nautilus with anything, you might like its slides and pools. On the territory of the water park there is also a cafe, you can buy corn, ice cream, hot dogs. True, prices in cafes and other services inside the water park are not the most attractive.

Ticket price: 800 rubles

Waterpark Starfish

The water park is located by the sea, as part oflarge entertainment complex "Dolphin". Next to it are also the Tropical Amazon Oceanarium with a penguinarium and an exotherrarium, a starfish dolphinarium and a children's amusement park. The territory of the water park is small, there are few slides and seams are felt on them. For children there is a heated swimming pool, water rides. The closed “Braids” interlaced with each other, as well as the “Cosmic ball” and “Kamikaze” belong to the extreme. In addition to water activities, daily shows are held in the water park. True, the service leaves much to be desired, the water park is very crowded during the season, the queues and local water parks will not be particularly interesting.

Ticket price: 1000 rubles

Tropical Amazon Oceanarium

Dolphin Starfish

Dolphinarium is in great entertainmentcomplex "Dolphin". The presentation in the dolphinarium lasts 50 minutes, two white whales, three dolphins, a sea lion and a walrus participate in the show. True, animals do not always perform the full composition, and not in all cases tricks are obtained from them the first time. After the presentation, visitors can buy souvenirs and CDs with a film about dolphinariums, take pictures with dolphins or swim. At extra charge. Swimming with dolphins immediately after the performance costs 2,000 rubles, 4 laps around the pool. According to reviews, this is not the most spectacular performance and not the best dolphinarium of Krasnodar Region Children may be interested, but for adults it is boring.

Ticket price: from 600 to 800 rubles, depending on the series.
