Adygea Ethnic Tourism Development

The Head of Adygea Murat Kumpilov commissioned the authorities of the republic to design a program for the development of ethnic tourism. “The republic should reach a qualitatively new level in this issue, we need to take into account all the accumulated experience of event tourism associated with the Adygea cheese festival, Circassian pear festival, pumpkin festival and others” - the Head of Adygea Murat Kumpilov said at a meeting in Maikop.

      So, it is planned to create an ethnic village, develop routes to natural monuments and create a unified tour guide material in this region. The opportunities of development of guest ethnic tourism will also be reviewed: those coming under this program will be able to live in the families of Adygea for two or three weeks, getting acquainted with the language, customs and traditions of the people.

      The Adygeya Republic, though often seen as one of the Caucasian republics, doesn't border them as it is surrounded by the Krasnodar Territory on all sides. The city of Maikop is the capital of the republic. The territory of Adygeya is 7800 square kilometers; its population is 450 thousand people. Adygeya has two towns, seven regions, five urban-type communities, and fifty-five rural districts. The Constitution of Adygeya, adopted in 1995, is founded on the principles of free-will joining the Russian Federation, preserving the entity and integrity of Russia, protecting the interests of multinational people of Adygeya, guaranteeing the rule of law and order, securing peace and inter-ethnic harmony in Adygeya. The republic has a warm climate and good location between three rivers making agriculture one of the key industries. In many Russian shops you can find white cheese produced in Adygeya – it features a mild taste and is perfect for breakfast.

      If you seek beauty of true nature, fresh air full of oxigen and ecologically clean food – Adygeya is one of the best places to go on holiday in Russia. An abundance of deep caves, snowcapped mountain tops, mountain rivers with waterfalls and calm lakes will make you forget of the life in the city. Adygeya has good sanatoriurns and spas and a great potential for developing tourism. The Lagonaki plateau has attracted downhill racers and tourists for over a quarter of a century (snow there doesn’t melt until June). Adygeya is popular with both downhill racers and recreational skiers. The snowy slopes of the Lagonaki plateau are so various that both amateurs and professional alpine skiers will find suitable routes. Spelunking is also well developed in Adygeya, which boasts 125 mines and caves. The local mountains also attract gliders. The first Russian gliding championship was held in Adygeya in 1991. Map of Adygea is courtesy of RareLibra of Wikimedia Commons.
