Volkonsky Dolmen – Sochi National Park

Volkonsky Dolmen is situate along Lazarevskoe- Sochi highway just 2 km from a village of Soloniki and about 1 km from a Black Sea. This magnificent structure was carved from a single boulder. Inner chamber measures 1.65 mmeters by 1.90 meters by 0.90 meters. The entrance is a hole with a diameter of 0.45 meters and points in the South Eastern direction. It was made by ancient people 3000 years ago. This monolith is situated near a sulfur spring so the smell might be somewhat unpleasant.
