Contrasts of a vacation in Abkhazia

Abkhazia is an ex-Soviet region on the shores of the Black Sea. Nowadays many tourists come to visit this place, mostly from Russia. For their comfort there have been built a lot of small, modern, luxury hotels and villas, however they are neighboring with old Soviet legacy buildings and there is a big contrast with them standing next to each other there, like in those four photos:

A regular Soviet apartment block next to a luxury pool. Who would have thought this was possible just 30 years ago?

  1. Russian-occupied Georgian Abkhazia. No wonder nobody beside Russians visit the place. Also, no wonder the place looks so soviet in the 21st century…
