Former Pearl Hotel

Completed: Early 1990s
Architect: Not known
Genre: Modernist, Soviet architecture, former USSR
Ochamchire is located on the Black Sea coast, approximately 50km southeast of the Abkhazian capital, Sukhumi. The town was badly affected by the Abkhazia-Georgia conflict of 1992-93 and, as a result, many of the buildings are in a state of abandonment or neglect. The Pearl Hotel was due to open its doors literally one or two days before the outbreak of the hostilities. More information about Ochamchire.
