Novorossiysk is the most important Russian port on the Black Sea. It is surrounded by the Caucasus Mountains and sits inside a large protected harbor that has been of significant military importance for the last 200 years. The battle cruiser Kutusov is the city's iconic attraction. Christened in 1951, it is now a Russian Navy Museum. Surrounding the port area are other military memorials and museums with Soviet-era sculptures and granite stele honoring this Hero City of Russia. There are several resort areas very near Novorossiysk, including Gelenjik, very popular as a summer getaway for Russian tourists. Lake Abrau, only 9 kilometers from the port, is one of the most important wine-making areas in Russia producing the Abrau-Durso sparkling wine. Winery tours are available. To the northwest is the historic city of Anapa, first settled by the Greeks and later ruled by the Ottomans.

Visa requirements: Cruise passengers visiting Russia (72 hours or less) do not need to get a visa as long as they work with a licensed tour guide. However, you must make your arrangements prior to arrival since the tour guide has to provide your information to the authorities. Cruise lines often advise that you must take their tours in order to avoid the visa process, but this is not correct. If you want to wander independently you will have to get a visa.
