The central Caucasus begins to arise from the steppe in a fascinating landscape studded with mineral springs, mountain chains and dead volcanoes. The springs curative power has always attracted wounded, sick or holiday-minded people from all over Russia.

Today this land known as Kavkazskie Mineralnye Vody (Caucasian Mineral Waters) is the biggest holiday resort in Russia for both holidaymakers and patients. The parks and elegant spa buildings recall the late 19th century, when fashionable society came here for rest, balls and even for a spouse.

The whole region is also connected with the name of Mikhail Lermontov, great Russian poet, who lived here for some time, described the area in his bets novel A Hero of Our Time and was killed in a duel in 1841. Many local sites tell about the poet and his life in the Caucasus.
