 Information about Novorossiysk

Novorossiysk is a city in the south of Russia, in the Krasnodar Territory. The administrative center of the municipality is the city of Novorossiysk. Located in the south-west of the region, off the coast of the Tsemess Bay of the Black Sea. Novorossiysk - an important transport center

It  is a hero city with a rich history. Despite its young age and somewhat “transitory” status among beach people, this place definitely deserves close attention. And here's why: Novorossiysk is not a typical maritime destination, but also not a purely industrial port. There are a lot of worthy sights and, at the same time, all the infrastructure inherent in a big city. And at his side are two of the best wineries in the Krasnodar Territory. Finally, local beaches are still relatively free and comfortable, and in terms of cleanliness or service, they are not much inferior to eminent neighbors. In a word, if you want to have a good rest and find out how the steel was tempered, what the great naval commanders of the 19th century were like, how the White Army came about, Novorossiysk is waiting.
