Today we have a series of very nice piece of architecture staying abandoned for quite a lot already. It is from Abkhazia region, the place that was under Russian rule long before communists came to power. It's located on the Black Sea and was so beloved by old Russian upper class that they called it "Russian Riviera". This place has probably the most picturesque abandons from ex Soviet places. We had once the old abandoned railway station from there, if you don't remember take look here it was very nice looking series too. Today some shots of the
abandoned Prince's House, built almost two centuries ago by special Royal order. That's how it looked when prince got it.

During Soviet Era the house was turned in elite summer residence for Moscow higher up men. That's how the placed look when it was conversed to the Hotel "Seagull" by the personal order of J. Stalin So let's see what's left there today.
