the Republic of Abkhazia by jackass94

Last July I visited Abkhazia, here are some pics of major cities and nature of this unrecognized republic. Questions and comments are welcome

Gagra, pop. 26 000

I haven't enough time there so unfortunately I've managed to explore only a tiny part of the city

There are some new and renovated buildings but in general, it's a very poor region

that's all, because taking photos wasn't my primary aim there but I guess Abkhazia is so unknown that any pics would be alright

It can be hardly named a part of Georgia now, Russian money, Russian TV channels, Russian language, I can visit it with only Russian passport (to visit Georgia I need a visa). There are a lot of monuments dedicated to the war for independence (1992-93), those guys don't want to be a part of anything anymore.

So it seems that Georgia lost Abkhazia forever and I'm not trying to start a flamewar

Looks so post-Soviet... though I am surprised about the expensive cars on the road compared to the city itself.

I guess those cars are from Russia, there are more Russian tourists than local people there in summer
