Walk on Gelendzhik
• Walk on Gelendzhik
I did not expect anything good from Gelendzhik. He seemed to me something like Adler. The only association in the head was a song about Cord "Wonderful man, I brought in Gelendzhik". All the time envisioned a resort for cattle, where all the fun - cheap beer and discos under Stas Mikhailov, and Irina Allegrova. The first suspicions began to slip when I discovered in Gelendzhik five star chain hotel Kempinski. I decided to go and look at the city-resort, how it really is.
What can I say ... Gelendzhik pleasantly surprised! This is the cleanest city in Russia that I saw. The impression that you are in New Zealand or Singapore. I still can not understand how in the Russian city manages to maintain such purity? I went from house to house, looked for garages, stayed on wild beaches - nowhere is there any bumazhechki! This is a case where the garbage should be really looking to find ... and still can not find! Just unbelieveble. Why Gelendzhik mayor still does not go to Russia to lecture and tells how it happened? Why do so many of the city on the coast looks like garbage, and Gelendzhik was a pleasant European resort? Of course, there are problems with urban planning, architecture and quality improvement, but overall for Gelendzhik quite embarrassing. If I love a beach holiday, you would come here for a vacation.
Let's start with the ideal of purity. I walked across the promenade and have not seen a single piece of paper!
All licked! Before the arrival of Putin, so do not remove!
I went down to the water, I thought, on the beach will definitely be garbage. But it is not! No cigarette butts, no ogryzochka.
The waves carried to the beach a little bit of algae, so they immediately began to clean up! Piled into neat piles, an hour later we collected and taken away. And this despite the fact that now is not the season, holiday-makers there and algae can be accurately scored. But no! Gelendzhik is cleanliness.
It's incredible. Talk with the locals, they just proud that they have clean and tidy, in a cult of cleanliness!
Okay, I thought, they removed the embankment, let's move away, where tourists do not go, there's something for sure ... garbage will be relegated to the outskirts of the city, and there is no waste!
Well, here they could and put away, I thought, let's look down the cliff. There scavenge difficult, so for sure there is something ... But the slope was perfectly clean.
Let's look around the garbage can ... Clean ...
Everywhere clean! If in some cities, it seems that the helicopter somebody flies and scatters debris, Gelendzhik seems that someone cleaned out all the giant vacuum cleaner.
Trash on the outskirts near the construction site. How they do it ?! Why clean? I do not believe...
Well, let's see the garbage cans in a residential area. Perfect cleanliness! This is despite the fact that the trash cans are old and wrong, such can not be set. But here they are, and they are clean! No smell, no waste.
The tanks are so clean that they are placed directly in front of entrances! Locals garbage piled in bags and tie them well. Tank at the entrance does not bother anyone, because it is perfectly clean.
Maybe there throwing garbage out of the windows? No ... under the windows cleanliness.
Maybe the house is not cleaned? No, and the house all licked ...
Please note that the ads then glue only on the special board! In the city there is no advertising of illegal rubbish. I honestly do not understand how in Gelendzhik managed to restore order. Maybe this is the secret weapon experience? Tip residents of Makhachkala - steal the mayor of Gelendzhik and bring it yourself, let the order will bring.
In general, I love the resort towns to come in out of season. Immediately obvious is actually here people live, how they love their city.
It is summer here come the millions of tourists, and perhaps something went wrong somewhere shit. Now, in February, I can see that live here are amazing people who love their city.
In a great hotel I was, it seems, the only guests. The hotel staff is amazingly polite, none of the Russian hotel, I have never met such a polite and helpful staff. In the evening in the lobby with live music, bored bartender is busy only one table - sit two prostitutes, drinking tea.
Local walk on the beach ...
Pier practically built up with all sorts of vile coffee shop and dining room, both Adler and Sochi.
Of course, the very embankment time to renovate and equip. Gelendzhik deserves better.
Most importantly, there is something to work with. Gelendzhik, in contrast to the same Adler, do not completely demolished. There should be only slightly improve some places, and it would be perfect.
In another city it would place on the waterfront was given to the restaurant or cottages, and left the park in Gelendzhik.
Everywhere playground and fitness equipment.
a little collective improvement, but people like.
Gelendzhik no wires terrible ... Moscow, envy!
The roads are mainly good, with no pits, the drivers are polite, do not chase.
Limitation of almost the entire city 40 kilometers per hour, it's very cool. Lots of cameras, people follow the rules.
A good pedestrian crossing at the same level as the pavement, as in Europe.
And in Gelendzhik awesome cats.
There are many.
They are beautiful.
Just like in the Samara.
How many cats do you have counted on this photo?
Yards in Gelendzhik clean and tidy
Residents here feel themselves masters of their yards and houses, so this order. Nobody lets shit at the door.
It can be seen that the repair yard for a long time did not give money, but what is, is contained in the order.
The yard is very cozy, asshole almost never found on lawns.
The city is almost no outdoor advertising. Generally, in visual terms there is also clean and tidy.
The main part of the building - the so-called private sector. Houses neat and tidy.
It is pleasant to look at.
The new architecture also does not cause irritation.
Please note, many fences are transparent. Home without "gypsy".
So the charm!
The townhouses being built.
Gelendzhik pleasantly surprised. It feels like an ordinary Russian city seized the British or the Dutch and then began to restore order. I'm ashamed that I thought badly of Gelendzhik.
