The tower on Mount Akhun is the most famous observation platform of Sochi. It seems that it has been there for centuries. In fact, it was built in 1936, when Joseph Stalin, who loved to spend time in the Khostinsky district at his dacha, climbed the mountain, admired the views and ordered to elevate this place: to build a road to Akhun and a viewing tower.

You can enjoy incredible views from the top: look to the north, and you will see the snow-capped Caucasus Mountains, look to the east to admire Adler, look to the west to contemplate Sochi.

Where did Stalin spend his vacations in Sochi? Sochinskaya dacha, like all Abkhazian dachas, was built by the architect Miron Merzhanov in 1931 over the left bank of the Matsesta River. The mountain slopes are hidden in the dense forest thickets. Exactly here a two-story castle painted in greed was erected.

The spacious house included a cabinet with a fireplace, a billiard room, a dining room and a cinema, many rooms for relatives and friends of the leader. The beautiful decoration of the dacha has been preserved to this day: the walls and ceilings in the rooms are decorated with precious wood.
