Welcome to Novy Afon

West from the waterfall and church, it’s 650m to the Novy Afon Caves, where guides lead visitors on a 1.4km, 1¼-hour underground journey through a series of impressive chambers. From here it’s 2.5km uphill to Anakopia, capital of Abkhazia in the 8th century AD. Taxis can take you halfway up for R100. Inside the hilltop citadel are a ruined 8th-century cathedral and a recently rebuilt 11th-century watchtower with awesome views.
