We choose Dagomys as our homebase for exploring the greater Sochi area as it is situated in the centre of the long town Sochi (170 kilometres along the coast) to which the village belongs. The name Dagomys has several translations, but most likely it is "shadowy or cool forest" taken from Adygean language. The village is situated just outside Sochi over the top of a small cape stretching into the Black Sea. This spot was popular among the tsar Nicolas II (the last tsar), that built a small summer residence here. Sadly enough, due to war and the revolution, he never got the chance to enjoy it. The Sowyet's took over the place of his small palace and built the Dagomys hotel here, one of the largest of Sochi.
Dagomys is also the place where in the late 19th century a Russian man, Kozman, started to grow teaplants. Russian tea tradition was already excisting, but now Russia got also it's own tea plantages in the surruondings of Dagomys as well as the most Northern area's that this plant is growing. In the smaller village parts up the mountain (Uch D'ray and Soloch Aool) this can be seen as well as enjoyed. A small museum tells about Kozman and his enterprise and a beautifully situated Tea House gives you the opportunity to taste a full Russian tea. This last is done with a spectacular view over Dagomys, it's surrounding foresty hills and the Black Sea.
