What awaits you
Stories of old cottages Graceful facades of the early 20th century, non-touristy colorful courtyards, stories of amazing people and archival photos will help us travel back a century, to the atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Kislovodsk. We will go to the courtyard of the city's first resort dachas, built by the restaurateur Anisim Shavgulidze. Consider the old mansions where Yesenin and Akhmatova stayed, Chaliapin sang, Mayakovsky wrote poetry, and Rachmaninov and Prokopyev wrote music. I will tell you how the royal family and Matilda Kshesinskaya waited out the revolutionary riots in Kislovodsk, and I will reveal how the love story of Kolchak and Timireva is connected with the resort
Resort corners of Kislovodsk We will not bypass the places where the life of the resort town was once concentrated
- From the inside, we will look at the building of the Narzan Baths, decorated with frescoes by M. Vrubel, and try the mineral water in the Narzan Gallery of the 19th century.
- Let's take a look at the “House with Caryatids” on Parkovy Pedestrian Street: you will find yourself inside the frames of A. Sokurov's film “Save and Save”, look at the wrought-iron openwork balconies and hear about the history of this place.
- We will touch the wall of the first fortress of Kislovodsk and, in the end, walk along the beautiful and lively Kurortny Boulevard, admiring the peaks of the Borgustan ridge towering in the distance.
