Arboretum in Sochi City Russia 


In the very center of the city there is one of the most beautiful botanical parks in the country - the Sochi Arboretum. This is a kind of open-air museum: it displays many samples of flora not only from the Western Caucasus, but also from many southern countries. In total, more than 1600 plant species grow on the territory of the arboretum with an area of 49 hectares. In particular, it is here that you can see the metasequoia, which scientists considered extinct about 60 million years ago, but having discovered several plants in China in 1944, they brought their seeds and grew full-fledged trees from them in the Sochi arboretum. Kant Island in Kaliningrad
