Abkhazia in detail

Money and Costs


Abkhazia’s currency is the Russian rouble (R). You can obtain roubles from ATMs in Sukhumi and Gagra and pay with international credit cards at some hotels and restaurants, and exchange cash US dollars or euros at banks and moneychangers. If possible, bring some roubles with you to ensure you can get to Sukhumi easily once you're across the border, as there are no ATMs there. It's easy to get roubles at any money exchange office in Tbilisi or Batumi.
