A trip on vacation to the sea on your car isA real journey into which a romantically tuned couple can go and a family with children whom adults want to show how diverse and beautiful Russian nature is.
The resort town of Gelendzhik is becoming more popular every year, it is ready to host campers, as almost all hotels and boarding houses have their own guarded parking lots.
If you go from Moscow
The capital with Gelendzhik is connected by the modernRecently reconstructed federal highway M4 - "Don". It passes through the territory of the Moscow, Tula, Lipetsk, Voronezh, Rostov regions and Krasnodar Krai. From Krasnodar on it you will reach first to Novorossiysk, and from there to Gelendzhik only 25 km. Those who go to the sea from St. Petersburg or other northern territories of the central part of the country, it makes sense to first get to Moscow, and then go south on the highway M4.
Of course, during the holiday season, the busyness of the routeEspecially large, and many campers complain about the numerous traffic jams in the Rostov region. Experienced tourists recommend that you calculate the time on the road to drive Rostov at night, in this case in the morning you will be in Krasnodar and by the middle of the day you will reach Gelendzhik, where along the central street there are middlemen offering accommodation. But, of course, it's better to book a place to stay in advance, because it's not a fact that you can easily remove something suitable, especially in August, at the height of the holiday season.
How to get from the Volga
In the event that your route begins inEastern regions of Russia, there is no sense to go to Moscow. It is best to use the proven route through Syzran-Saratov-Volgograd-Salsk-Krasnodar-Goryachy Klyuch-Dzhubgu-Gelendzhik in this case. True, autotourists note a not very good road from Syzran to Saratov and a large number of heavy trucks from Saratov to Volgograd, which, of course, affects the speed of movement. Take into account that the segment of the route from Volgograd to Salsk can not be called brisk, so refuel the car and have a bite by yourself in Volgograd. A large number of traffic cops you can find in the bifurcation area with the M27 - "Kavkaz" route, which will take you to Krasnodar, therefore, even though the road is wide, observe the rules of the road.
