Locals in Sochi adore Caucasian, in particular, Georgian cuisine. Its distinctive flavors fill the air around Sochi and Adler as soon as the first warm summer days roll in. You can buy lavash (thin wheat flatbread) in any supermarket in the city. Stews, meat grilled on the coals, piles of fresh herbs and vegetables, soft cheeses, delicious pastry, and sweet red and dry white wines—this is what a traditional Caucasian feast looks like. Tkemali, satsebeli, adjika, and nasharab are all sauces that are highly popular in Russia. Here’s our selection of the best Caucasian restaurants in the city.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
