Arboretum : From the train station to the Sochi Arboretum at Kurortny Avenue approximately 3.5 miles . , So get to it advise on the shuttle bus .
Go to the stop is not necessary: at the station cross the road — and you have to stop. Transport from there to the Arboretum walks very much. Make sure that you do not was driven past the Arboretum , and if anything, just scream ( we caught a driver who does not stay at the station , and where the people demanded . We did not know where we must go , so we was driven past the Arboretum ) .
In the Arboretum itself can be accessed in two ways: through the main entrance on the Spa brochure , or you can go over the top by cable car. We chose the second option : First, we decided that it would be easier to descend than to rise , and secondly , I wanted to ride on a cable car. If you decide to start with the cable car , keep in mind that the lift station is located a little closer than the main entrance to the park ( there are signs ) . The first departure of the lift — at 9 am .
Once the cable car takes you to the observation panoramic platform , which offers stunning views of Sochi. Next, slowly go down the numerous alleys , picture taken constantly and just enjoying the sights and plants. On the territory of the Arboretum is a cafe and a lot of freestanding tents, where you can buy something to eat .
Arboretum is divided into two parts Resort prospectus . If you have gone through the entire top Arboretum, when you exit the main entrance there is an underground passage that leads you to the lower park ( to go there , you need to show the ticket , which they bought earlier, so do not throw it). The lower park has lakes , various animals , many beautiful colors and unusual trees.
