The visiting card of the city is considered Kiselyova Rock. Many could see this amazing creation of nature in the famous film “The Diamond Arm”. The fishing scene on the Black Stones was filmed right here, at the foot of the cliff. It is named after the great artist Alexander Alexandrovich Kiselyov, who lived in the city of Tuapse and loved to paint local landscapes.
The rock rises 46 meters above the city and looks like a sheer wall cut off with a sharp knife. Access by car to the Kiselyova Rock will cost 100 rubles, but it is more convenient and interesting to get to it on foot from the Spider Beach. For those who want to swim or stay overnight with tents, there is a small beach below, right next to the cliff.
Here you can consider in more detail how alternating stretches of sandstone and harder rocks, which form the base of the rock. All its sides resemble huge reefs, and only the side facing the sea is perfectly smooth and durable. Nature has created a masterpiece that cannot be ignored.

Archaeological site “Psinako”
The mystical terrain called “Psinako” is located 26 kilometers from the city of Tuapse. Psynako is a large mound in which dolmen was discovered. The unusual construction of the mound has not yet been solved, but it is assumed that the construction was constructed in this way to communicate with other worlds. It looks like a kind of pyramid, from which 12 rays depart.
Scientists suspect that previously there was a sanctuary on the site of the dolmen, which they used for burials three thousand years BC, but they can’t confirm their guesses, since only stones were found in the burial places. Another version of the meaning of the construction was the conduct of rituals for worshiping the sun god.
