What awaits you
Fortress City Ugryup… We will walk the streets of the city, look at the buildings that were once built by the Greeks - even before the population exchange in 1924. You will hear about the revered Saint John of Russia, who was captured from the tsarist army of Peter I and lived here in the 18th century. And in the art gallery, you will watch how they paint on water and fabrics using the ebrulee technique, and, if you wish, take part in a master class.
Uch Guseller - the name of this place is translated as “three beauties”. Three huge stone pillars - according to legend, these are forever frozen goddesses Hera, Aphrodite and Athena. You will take pictures with them and enjoy the volcanic landscapes.
