Sana­to­ri­um them. Ordzhonikidze is locat­ed in the Khostin­sky dis­trict of Sochi. Its his­to­ry goes back to the first half of the last cen­tu­ry. Being a his­tor­i­cal archi­tec­tur­al mon­u­ment of the fed­er­al lev­el, the sana­to­ri­um attracts many trav­el­ers, and even local res­i­dents often vis­it it in search of peace and tran­quil­i­ty in the bosom of stun­ning nature. Every­one, with­out excep­tion, says that the best views of the Black Sea open from here.

10 years ago, the sana­to­ri­um was closed for recon­struc­tion, which has not been com­plet­ed to this day. All this time the ter­ri­to­ry of the com­plex is open for vis­its and excur­sions. Due to lack of funds and tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties, the fate of this site remains unclear.

On a vast ter­ri­to­ry of more than 15 hectares, there are many objects, includ­ing 9 build­ings, har­mo­nious­ly locat­ed around the cen­tral build­ing. A spe­cial dec­o­ra­tion of the resort were its foun­tains, which are cur­rent­ly not work­ing. Each of the build­ings can right­ful­ly be proud of its por­ti­co, but the most large-scale columns are near the main build­ing. Even the stairs of the Ordzhonikidze sana­to­ri­um impress with their grandeur. Among the sana­to­ri­ums in Sochi with treat­ment, this place was con­sid­ered the most unique.

Since you can’t go inside the build­ings, walk­ing around the entire ter­ri­to­ry and explor­ing the sights will take you about two hours. Sports grounds are still open where you can work out, play vol­ley­ball, or ten­nis. There are sev­er­al play­grounds where chil­dren play with plea­sure. Pre­vi­ous­ly, the sea could be reached by cable car, which also fell into dis­re­pair and requires repair. How­ev­er, you can safe­ly walk to the local beach on foot along a scenic path.

Giv­en the unique archi­tec­ture and beau­ti­ful nature, it is not sur­pris­ing that many films were shot here, includ­ing the famous Sovi­et film “Old Man Hot­tabych”. You can walk through the rec­og­niz­able places where the events of your favorite child­hood films took place.

How to get to the resort

Due to its close loca­tion to the city, the Ordzhonikidze sana­to­ri­um is extreme­ly acces­si­ble for vis­it­ing:

  • You can get here quite bud­getary by pub­lic trans­port direct­ly from the air­port, using bus­es 105 and 105c.
  • If you come by train, there are bus­es 121 and 120 from the train sta­tion.
  • Bus route 125 goes straight from Imeretinskaya Bay. You will not pass by a stop with the name “Ordzhonikidze Sana­to­ri­um”, so you can safe­ly use pub­lic trans­port.

How­ev­er, it is most con­ve­nient to dri­ve your own car, which can be parked right at the entrance. At the end of the walk, you can com­fort­ably leave at any time con­ve­nient for you, with­out hav­ing to wait for the bus.
