Anapa is the Russian Black Sea resort located in the Southwestern part of the Krasnodar region, at the junction of foothills of the Caucasus and temperate grasslands of the Taman Peninsula. Area of the region is almost a thousand sq. km.
Anapa is one of the most ancient cities of Russia. Its age is more than 2,500 years. In different periods there were the cities of Sindica and Gorgippia. In 1846 Anapa received the status of a seaport town “for the settlement of inhabitants of commercial and industrial class”.
The status of a Federal resort region was given to Anapa by the decree of the President dated 22.09.1994 № 1954, for relaxation and treatment of children, tweens and parents with children.
Anapa is distinguished by its unique natural resources from most of sea resorts. Anapa is the sunniest city in Russia, where the sun shines almost 300 days a year, and bathing suit season lasts from May 15 to October 15.
Anapa is the only resort, which has curative sandy beaches with a length of 42 km and 12 km-long shingle beaches.
Anapa is rich in its own curative mud and mineral waters. Powerful healing effect is given by ionized air of centuries-old relic juniper forests located near the village of Bolshoi Utrish, and sunbathing on quartz sands – psammotherapy.
All over the town and its main highway - the Pioneer prospectus – there are walking health trails for “Terrainkur” with a length of 22 kilometers. Drinkable pump rooms with local mineral water are available along the trails.
Climatic and therapeutic potential of Anapa was repeatedly marked at the highest level. General Assembly of the World Federation of hydrotherapy and climatotherapy (FEMTEK) entitled Anapa as the “Best resort region of the world” twice. Three times Anapa became the winner of regional competition of the “Resort Olympus” in nomination of the “Resort of the year” and was recognized as the safest town in Russia.
In May 2011 by the decree of the President of Russia, Anapa was awarded with the title of the “City of Military Glory”.
The largest sector of Anapa is sanatorium-resort and tourist complex, which includes 207 sanatorium-resort establishments, 89 hotels, more than 4,100 specialized and individual accommodation, 30 tourist and excursion companies, 19 objects of tourist interest, and infrastructure objects.

A number of resorts have certificates of 3, 4 and 5 stars. The best doctors of the resort mastered and implemented more than 400 diagnostic and treatment techniques, many of which are unique and one-of-a-kind.
Anapa is a major transport hub with an airport, railway, sea and bus stations, and developed network of highways. This provides an opportunity to visit the resort by everyone.
Anapa is rightly called the festival harbor of Russia. Annually the resort welcomes more than 20 major festivals.
In recent years the resort has become a real small sports Mecca. Every year 500 sporting events at Russian and international level on a high organizational level take place here.
Anapa is one of the most comfortable resorts of the Krasnodar region. The town is distinguished by clean streets, flowers, landscaped Promenade, well-maintained facades of houses, furnished, beautiful and clean beaches.
There is an ongoing program of “Anapa - town of flowers”. In recent years the town was decorated with new objects - the Alley of Roses with waterfall fountain, small architectural forms: family of elephants on the Pioneer prospectus, the giant butterfly in the Park of 30 Years of Victory and the flower ship with crimson sails on the Promenade. On the area of 7 hectares there is the Park “Orehovaya roscha” with the largest rose garden on the Black Sea coast.
New sports facilities were built in Anapa. Multifunctional sports complex on Omelkova Street was opened in April 2011. At the end of 2011 on the territory of sanatorium “Neftyanik Kubani” will be completed the construction of a swimming center with spectator stands for 1,200 seats, two swimming pools for swimming and water polo, for competitions of European and world level.
By combination of natural factors and dynamics of infrastructure development, Anapa has a special investment appeal and strong potential for implementation of projects of any degree of complexity. The resort confidently looks into the future and prospects of its development are indisputable.
Currently, sanatorium-resort industry continues to develop dynamically, to offer its guests new promising services in the sphere of relaxation and recreation.
