This railway station, on the one side, shows how brilliant and powerful in its thoughts and people was the former USSR; but, on the other one, it's a monument to the glory that disappeared when it's gone. A good place for a calm walking around when you visit New Atos, especially after visiting the very monastery. No, trains do not travel there - it's a myth for unaware persons :)...; thus, you could patiently take your photos there. Better to visit it by your own without any group and in the very morning - in order to have enough time to walk around without any hurry and crowds :). It's amazing as in spring as in autumn - therefore, do not worry too much in selecting the season - just admire the history gone :).

I'm still not sure if trains actually travel to Abkhazia any more - I certainly didn't see any whilst visiting and none of the stations looked like they were actually still in use. This one in New Athos was no exception - beautiful location, but the station itself in quite poor condition and apparently abandoned.

When strolling up from the Waterfall, you see a mirage on your left, emerging from a small lake is a beautiful structure. It reminds you of the lost grandeur of the Russian Empire, probably end of 19th, beginning of 20th century. When you approach it, you realise that it badly needs restoration. And when wandering around, another surprise, as out of a dream, a freight train appears from the tunner whistling just to disappear a hundred meters later to another tunnel. You stand there wandering if all this was true.
