Resort city Gagra, Abkhazia

 

Gagra is a town in the northeast coast of the Black Sea, and is part of Abkhazia, a disputed territory in Georgia. Abkhazia considers itself as an independent country, though Georgia considers it as an autonomous republic.  In Imperial Russia and Soviet times, it was a popular health resort due to the nice subtropical weather in the area. This card was sent by Olga, from Russia, and she was born in Abkhazia.
