Abkhazia Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Abkhazia
Hello and welcome to our Abkhazia travel blog. You will find all our Abkhazia blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Abkhazia travel blog because you are considering a visit to Abkhazia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to the Caucasus region. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Abkhazia.
We wrote these posts following our Summer 2018 travel to Abkhazia, a tiny de-facto state in the Caucasus. We have mixed feelings about Abkhazia – on the one hand, we really enjoyed exploring a lesser-visited part of the region (we saw one other foreign tourist during our 10-day visit), but Abkhazia also has dark memories for us, because it was there that we had our worst-ever travel experience.
Our Abkhazia blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.

Alternative things to see on our Baltic States and the Caucasus trip included street art, abandoned places, Soviet-era architecture, mosaics and monuments.
