In the very heart of Kislovodsk, at the entrance to the Kurortny Park, there rises a Gothic building made of yellow stone, reminiscent of a revived illustration from a medieval knightly novel - Narzan Gallery, one of the most popular sights of the city. It is hard to believe that once on the site of the fairytale Palace there was an ordinary wooden well with the fence, from which local residents took water to treat chronic ailments. Over time, a canvas gallery was built around, where the gentlemen who came to improve their health on the healing waters made a promenade, admiring the surroundings. In view of the growing popularity of the spring among vacationers, in 1851 it was decided to replace the canvas with a more durable material - stone. The development of the project for the new gallery was entrusted to the English architect Upton. Mosque "Heart of Chechnya" of Grozny

The Gothic building, built according to his sketches, has undergone very minor changes over the past years: in 1893 the depth of the well was increased and the capturing was reconstructed, after 2 years an 8-sided glass dome was installed on the top of the source, and after 13 years the base of the well was strengthened and the cracked ones were replaced in a glass cap. Since then, the appearance of the Narzan Gallery has not changed.

What To See

The gallery is located at the end of K. Marks Avenue - a walking area filled with slender rows of stalls with souvenir products. To the left of the entrance to the building, there is small square with a fountain, where vacationers like to stroll, leisurely sipping narzan from cups taken with them. Inside, the gallery is lined with marble, so even on the hottest day it is cool. In the center of the building there is a well covered with a glass dome: the water in it boils like a geyser - the result of the action of carbon dioxide, bubbles rising from the bottom of the spring.

Around the entire perimeter of the building, there are pump rooms crowned with lamps with the sights of Kislovodsk depicted on them. Place of Lermontov's Duel in Pyatigorsk

You can come up and collect water for free, the only condition is not to pour the narzan into bottles, but to use a mug. If you forgot to take a container with you, you can purchase a disposable cup next to the stall. 

Water in pump rooms differs in taste and has different effects on the body. What water and in what quantities to drink will be advised by doctors who advise all vacationers for free right in the gallery building.

If a doctor is absent, you can refer to the general treatment regimen hanging on the wall of the room. Opposite it is a nice sculptural composition in antique style - a round pool with a half-naked bather, where visitors throw coins in the hope of someday returning to the hospitable city.
