Are you curious about ghost buildings and abandoned architecture? Do you love places that make run both your imagination and adrenaline at the same time?
We invite you to explore the ghost parts of the gorgeous SPA Resort Tskaltubo that was booming in the Soviet Union after World War II. Famous for its healing mineral waters and radon bath treatments, it was visited by 125 000 people yearly and Stalin himself had a private dacha and bath. There were built around 20 marble sanatoriums with inner gardens, swimming pools, and bathhouses, hotels with theatres. The resort's focus is still on balneotherapy for circulatory, nervous, musculoskeletal, gynecological and skin diseases.
Though after the Soviet Union collapsed, spa town lost visitors. Today it visits only about 1000 people per year. A lot of buildings became abandoned, but in some of them, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Abkhazia were moved after armed conflicts in this region.
Soon government plans to renovate all sanatoriums in Tskaltubo! Few buildings are already surrounded by a fence and some are dangerous to visit.
We offer you to visit the most memorable and off the beaten path sights in the company of the local guide.
