Discover Pyatigorsk Russia

It is in this quiet town in Stavropol Krai, in the south of Russia, where Russia's oldest health spa is located. Visitors come to Pyatigorsk to bathe in the very hot waters of its mineral springs and to visit the various monuments and museums dotted around the mountainside. It's also possible to take a cable car alongside the locals up Mount Mashuk, which overlooks the town below and affords a wonderful view of Mineralnye Vody. While you're up there, don't forget to take a photo of the statue of the eagle, the symbol of the spa towns and cities of North Caucasus, and of the statue of Lermontov, a writer who died in a duel in Pyatigorsk.
