One of the most striking sights of the Old Gagra area. The majestic eucalyptus alley is planted along the main highway of Gagra - Nartaa Street. This was done at the beginning of the 20th century, when eucalyptus trees were brought to the Caucasian Black Sea region specifically to combat malaria. Eucalyptus is able to quickly absorb a significant amount of moisture and evaporate it in huge quantities, already saturated with phytoncides that suppress pathogenic microorganisms.
According to experienced tourists, it is best to walk along the alley after the rain, when the unique scent of eucalyptus leaves is in the air. There are many shops, hotels, cafes, restaurants and various entertainment establishments along the alley, so when you get tired of walking you can always find a place to relax. Well, for those who want to take unforgettable photos, it is better to visit the seaside park and the famous colonnade.
The embankment street is also of great interest to tourists. Recently, the authorities have invested heavily in the creation of a single entertainment complex here, so now this place is suitable not only for those who prefer leisurely walks along the picturesque sea coast, but also for lovers of more active pastime..
