Krasnodar region > Djankhot
DjankhotSеа welcomes every traveler. But the one, who has not yet been in the comfortable coastal homestead Djankhot can not say that he has seen every beautiful place in Russia. Just 10 km away from Gelendjik, you can find a comfortable and peaceful place in a quiet bay of the Black Sea right at the creek of Khotesai river. Surrounded by the Relic Pinsunda Pine Forest, which makes it a natural health center for those who come here.
Every walk you take in this place is a brand new discovery. For example, walking just for one km along the coast on the pebble beach, you can find the real marine abyss. Here, the shoreline cliffs are looking on the water surface of the Black Sea and the mirror image of the water surface gives you a deep feeling of the edye of the earth.
Djankhot is a great gift of a famous Kuban historian Fedor Sherbin, the greatest
traveler of all time. After 30 years of the end of Caucasian War, he was the
first one in 1893 to find this place and began residing here. He was also the
one who gave a very romantic and sound name to its homestead, calling it "Aul
Djankhot" in honor of an Adygian person. It can also be translated as "Happy
Person". Fedor Andreevich Sherbin was remembered and mentioned in Russian
and Kuban history as the author of "History of Kuban Caucas Unit",
a Deputy of the Imperial Duma, Public and Social Figure and the editor of the
first Caucas newspaper. He was able to build a road from Divnomorsk homestead
to Djankhot, set up grape fields, gardens and formed a farm, where he worked
for a long time. People say, that Fedor Sherbin's archives , that were lost
after his death, are still underground of his unfinished farm.
Based on the right of the first pioneer, a historian himself "chose"
neighbors and after several years, one of them was the Korolenko Brothers. The
older brother, the famous writer Vladimir Korolenko, was looking to find a place
for his younger brother somewhere on the coast of the Black Sea, where he could
set up grape fields and manage them, and in the summer he could invite the whole
family. And he found Djankhot. "Sherbin dreams about finding as many good
people as possible to reside here. Firstly, he wants to have good neighbors
and secondly, more importantly for him, he wants that land surrounding the farm
was divided in sectors. He is energetic and ready to help others", said
Vladimir Korolenko to his brother. Right now, on a steep hillside on the left
side of the river, you can find an old two-store house with a red-colored roof,
white staircases and balconies. Since 1964, on his premise, you can find a Memorial
Museum of Literature, named after a famous sketch "Blind Musician"
and Legend of Polesskoy". Next to the Museum of Literature, you can find
a rare cedar of Lebanon, which is 150 years old.
Djankhot and its surrounding areas, there are 33 cultural, historical and natural
statues. Among them, there is a famous standing rock wall, named "Parus".
Over the years, it separated itself from the hillside mountain and resembles
a sail. In addition, this famous rock wall "Parus" is famous for withstanding
4 heavy bombing shells during wartimes and it continues to stand tall among
the other beautiful sites in the area.
