Discover Sochi: Matsesta
March 29, 2018 17:39


 Matsesta is known as a separate area between Khosta and Sochi, but it is an administrative part of Khosta district. It has unusually beautiful views that mostly relate to the Sochi National Park and a very modest infrastructure.

There is no resort zone as such in Matsesta, although the beach is available. There are no hotels or cafes near it, only a parking lot next to the industrial zone under the Matsestinsky aqueduct bridge built in 1930-s. The residential zone on the territory of Matsesta goes deep into the mountains, and are boarding houses and holiday centres built during the Stalin era as part of “Sochi landscaping” are closer to the sea.

Residential buildings are located on the mountain from one side of the avenue, the descent to the sea is on the other side.

The only road leading to the mountains starts near the “Matsesta” sculpture. Matsesta is divided into Novaya (“New”), Srednyaya (“Middle”), Verkhnyaya (“Upper”) and Staraya (“Old”): they are listed in accordance with their remoteness from the sea. The famous balneary is situated in Upper Matsesta.

Old Matsesta is presented by settlements and villages situated along the same road, like seashells beaded on a necklace. The area has its highlights, too. For example, there is a complex of beautiful Zmeikovskiye waterfalls near the village of Izmailovka, besides, tea plantations grow near the village of Semenovka.

The box offices of the hydropathic establishment are open every day, except Sundays, from 8:00 1:00 p.m. The entrance to the territory with sanatorium-resort passes is free and does not depend on the work of the box offices. The springs are open daily from 7:45 a.m. to 2:15 a.m. without holidays.
