Observation deck and restaurant on Rosa Peak

The Rosa Peak observation deck, located at an altitude of 2320 meters above sea level, offers stunning panoramic views. In good weather, these are views of the Caucasus Mountains, including the Aibga Mountains, as well as the Black Sea.

During our winter ascent to Rosa Peak, the weather did not really" smile " and, as a result, we did not manage to fully admire the gorgeous views.

On the site of Rosa Peak there is a high-altitude restaurant "Height 2320" from the panoramic windows of which there is a view of the Main Caucasian Ridge, Mount Aibga and the Black Sea.

The restaurant has an outdoor terrace, and its menu combines local Black Sea and classic European cuisine.
