Lazarevskoye – the very first resort on the Black Sea, where I turned out to be. It was a very long time in childhood, the year at 3. We went there several times and every trip I waited with a sinking heart. maybe so I have warm feelings for this village. For the rest he rather ordinary, crowded in season, with a railway about the beach. If you like to relax in quieter places, it is better to shoot housing in neighboring villages. Sights can be visited, wherever you live.
Well, if you do go to Lazarevskoye, then look at My post – A selection of budget hotels with the best ratings and reviews. It’s better to book everything in advance, especially during the season, and then on the spot not at all find what I would like.
