Waterfalls, lakes and mineral springs


Matsesta is the largest balneology and therapy facility in Russia, opened as far back as the beginning of the 20th century in the valley of the Rivers Agura and Khosta. It was here that a large field of hydrosulphuric springs was discovered. Hydrogen sulphide is Matsesta’s most important therapeutic component. Entering the human body via the respiratory tract or skin, it acts on tissue and cell structure and facilitates the treatment of inflammatory conditions. Thanks to Matsesta water Sochi is a year-round resort to which holidaymakers travel throughout the year to improve their health.
