Tourists still go to Sergeeevka - a cheap Black Sea resort which travel agencies present as a beautiful spot. What we see is not so wonderful. Let's try to figure out why Black Sea resorts die.
The very site is in fact very lovely. It is famous for its therapeutic muds. In the Soviet times everything was fine: people came to this prosperous resorts and a lot of hotels were built.
Let's have a look at one.
Can you imagine 16 storeys of complete ruin? What is even more shocking is that the hotel is recorded as working one. Travel agencies offer this hotel as "modern 16-storey hotel with rooms for different number of people including suites with upholstered furniture".
This furniture is definitely not from the web advertisement. It is probably for simpler rooms.
