Sightseeing in Adler - what to see. Complete travel guide

The city was founded in ancient times, at the time when the savage and warlike tribes of the barbarians lived on the shores of the Black Sea. This is substantiated by the numerous findings of archaeologists: stone weapons and household items found on the fields of former state farms. In ancient times on this territory there lived tribes engaged in farming and fishing. Also, at the coast of the sea were found flat containers similar to pans, in which settlers evaporated sea water and received salt.

At the beginning of the 6th century AD, 1300 years ago, the first Greek colonies were formed on the coast. One of the books, dating back to the beginning of the last century, which describes in more detail the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus, was written by a traveler-geographer, the legendary Swiss Dubois de Montpar. In this book the first name of the city in the local language is Ardlar.
During the Caucasian wars among the Russian officers were Germans. In addition, numerous Russian officers perfectly knew the German language. It was quite difficult for them to pronounce the name Ardlar, in comparison to pronouncing the German word "Ardler", which in translation meant "Eagle". One of the main features of the city was a specific climate. Due to the increased level of moisture and frequent torrential rains, numerous marshes were actively spreading malaria. Until the middle of the XIX century, this disease was a real disaster for all residents and it scared off all visitors. Hardly, not every local experienced the severe debilitating illness.
