Sightseeing

Gelendzhik extends over a long narrow strip of the seacoast of the Gelendzhik Bay, and the bend of the coastline determines a slightly rounded direction of city streets. In the 19th century it was built up according to a regular planning.

In the late 19th early 20th centuries resort buildings were designed in the style of eclecticism and art nouveau.

In the vicinities of Gelendzhik there is a remarkable forest of Pitsunda Pines, which is a nature sanctuary, as well as gardens and vineyards. Medieval Adygei kurgan burial grounds will be interesting to lovers of antiquity. Gelendzhik has several museums: Local History Museum, V. G. Korolenko's House Museum, the Central Exhibition Hall, and others.
