Resort «Nalchik» is a resort of federal significance (↑)

Resort “Nalchik”, an all-season balneological and climatic health resort of Federal significance, is located in the foothill zone of Kabardino-Balkarian Republic at altitudes of 500 to 560 meters above sea level, in the most comfortable climatic region of the capital of the republic Nalchik-resort area of Dolinsk. Rich traditions of sanatorium-and-spa services for the population and rehabilitation therapy are more than 80 years old as an All-Russian health resort.

Unique climatic conditions, as well as the presence of a large number of effective natural healing factors put the resort "Nalchik" on one level with the world-famous resort centers of Europe. From three sides the city is covered by a wide half-ring of wooded mountains, due to which a certain microclimate is created on the territory of the resort zone, which positively influences the physical state of the organism. The southern part of the city adjoins directly to the mountain-wooded zone, where a huge park with lakes is stretched, and further in three to four kilometers, - the resort area of ​​Dolinsk, where sanatoria, rest houses and tourist centers are located. The resort area covers an area of ​​about two thousand hectares, most of it park and forest-park, consisting of coniferous, deciduous, fruit and ornamental trees.

In addition to its successful location, rich history as a resort of All-Union and All-Russian importance, the resort "Nalchik" has all the necessary infrastructure for treatment and rehabilitation:

- a wide variety of natural medicinal resources, including iodine-bromine, nitric-thermal, hydrogen sulfide mineral waters, hydrocarbonate-sodium medicinal mineral water, significant reserves of the world-famous mud of Tambukansky Lake (long-term bunker storage of volumes sufficient for decades).

- a network of sanatoriums, health camps and recreation centers, as well as medical and diagnostic facilities, one of the few functioning health centers for therapeutic loads in our country;

- universal transport accessibility (including air, rail and road transport connection with other regions),

- recreational facilities for tourists and those who undergo therapeutic treatment, including a wide excursion program for the sights of the republic (all major destinations are in immediate transport access, from an hour to two), cultural events (concerts of national music and dance, performances by the state philharmonic society), access to the points of sale of souvenirs that are on the territory of the resort.

 

Traditions of sanatorium-therapeutic rehabilitation (↑)

Nalchik resort, as a climatic station, exists since 1900, but the wide construction and development of the resort began at the end of the first quarter of the 20th century.

Already in 1921 the workers of the young Soviet republic were sent here for rest. Since 1932, in connection with the search for a new base of medicinal mineral waters, the resort from the climatic station for tuberculosis patients is transferred to a resort for the treatment of general therapeutic patients. In 1935 the construction of the capturing of the Belorechensky sources was completed and their debit was significantly increased. A year later the resort had its own medicinal drinking water. In the same period, mud from the Tambukanskoye Lake was brought.

In 1936 Nalchik was ranked to balneoclimatic resorts of federal importance. Before the war six sanatoria were already functioning in Dolinsk, in which over 10 thousand people rested and treated during the year.

Especially rapid development of the resort Nalchik began after the decision of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR in 1959 “On the development of the resort of Nalchik and the organization of recreation, tourism and mountaineering in the Elbrus region”. In 1964, by the decision of the Board of the Central Council for the management of health resorts of trade unions, Nalchik was recognized as a health resort of Union status by a health center of all-Union significance.

As a result of the implementation of measures stipulated by the government resolution, the Nalchik resort will turn into a blossoming health resort of the Soviet Union, into one of the wonderful places for rest of the working people of a huge country. Residents of all corners of the USSR came here for treatment. The network of medical institutions grew from year to year, their capacity increased, and the effectiveness of treatment improved. The sanatoriums were equipped with new equipment. The resort employed about 400 doctors. In 1969, a well of new mineral hot water was opened with a production rate of over 12 million liters per day. In the sanatoriums of Nalchik rested in 1958 - 36,000, in 1968 - 80,000, in 1971 - 100 thousand people.

In the late 80-ies the resort of Nalchik in its development reached its apogee. To the services of numerous guests of the resort, who came for rest and treatment were 15 sanatoriums, 3 boarding houses, rest houses.

In 1999, by the decree of the Government of the Russian Federation dated October 31, 1999 № 1203 resort Nalchik awarded the status of a resort of federal significance.

 

Balneoclimatic conditions and natural healing resources (↑)

The resort of Nalchik is a balneo-mud and mountain-climatic health resort with the specialization of medical profile for the treatment and prevention of diseases of the circulatory and nervous system, musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, digestive system, genitourinary system, endocrine system diseases, eating disorders and metabolic disorders, as well as skin diseases and subcutaneous tissue.

The climate of the resort is determined by its geographical location. The main Caucasian ridge serves as a sharp climatic boundary between the moderately warm North Caucasus and the subtropical Transcaucasia. Due to the proximity to the snow mountains and the abundance of woody vegetation, the air here is extremely clean, there is no dust, smoke and harmful fumes, the presence of ionization with the predominance of curative light negative ions is also an indicator of the absence of air pollution.

The winter in the resort is moderately cold, with little snow, with an unstable snow cover and frequent thawing of snow. A large number of sunny days makes it bright and beautiful. Spring is early, long, with abundant precipitation and an average air temperature of +8.4°. Morning  and evening frosts and increased relative humidity, causing fog are typical for the region. Summer is relatively dry, hot and long, with a lot of sunny days. Rainfall, with thunderstorms, falls mostly in May. Autumn is warm, dry and long, with lots of sunny days. Since the second half of October, foggy days are becoming quite a lot. Snow begins to fall in late November, but a steady snow cover is not formed. The weather is relatively stable and does not differ by sharp daily fluctuations in atmospheric pressure and temperature, which ensures the year-round functioning of the resort.

Kabardino-Balkaria has significant hydromineral resources, which are successfully used for spa and wellness purposes. Within the republic there are more than 100 manifestations of mineral waters belonging to different groups of waters. 8 deposits of medicinal mineral waters with approved balance operational reserves in amount of 10.835 thousand m3 per day were explored.

At the resort of Nalchik, for external use, Belorechenskaya mineral water and Nalchik mineral water "Dolinsk" are used, and for the internal water - water from Dolinsky springs.

Since 1952, the medical practice of the Nalchik resort has introduced the treatment of bowel diseases by underwater washing with its Belorechensk mineral water, the so-called subaqueous (underwater) baths. The main indicator for the appointment of underwater intestinal rinses with mineral waters are: constipation, chronic colitis, metabolic diseases (gout, diabetes, obesity). The use of underwater lavage of the intestine gives good results.

Especially effective water treatment is observed in combination with therapeutic mud from the Tambukansky lake.

In accordance with the "Classification of mineral waters and medicinal mud for certification (MU No. 2000/34 MZ RF)" mud deposits of the Tambukanskoye deposit belong to therapeutic silt highly mineralized highly sulfide muds of continental reservoirs. Their balneological value is due to good viscoplastic and thermal properties, high content of iron sulphides and water-soluble salts.

Studies have established that Tambukan mud has a broad spectrum of action: immunocorrecting, desensitizing, anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, analgesic and hormonal effects.

Medical indications for the use of Tambukan mud:

Arthritis and polyarthritis of non-tubercular origin, deforming arthrosis, osteochondrosis, spondylosis, infectious non-tubercular infections, otitis, myositis, fibromyositis, bursitis, contractures, osteomilites, trophic skin ulcers, radiculitis, polyneuritis, encephalitis, poliomyelitis, gynecological diseases, digestive diseases, vascular diseases System, diseases of the genitourinary system (chronic prostatitis, cystitis), respiratory diseases of a non-tubercular nature, ear, nose, skin, eyesight, gums.

It is necessary to note the use of naftalan by the method of  N.A.Tuaev in the form of mud-phthalane procedures and photoparafinonaphthalan therapy. The admixture of naphthalan softens the action of mud on the heart and sharply increases the estrogenic effect of mud, especially with gynecological diseases, since fullilliculate substances in naphthalan are several hundred times greater than in mud. Indications and contraindications for the use of this mixture are basically the same as for mud therapy.

For vacationers, according to the doctor's prescription, balneological procedures are available: underwater shower-massage, iodine-bromine, nitrogen-thermal baths, therapeutic mud applications. In addition, the use of mineral water, oxygen cocktails and phytotherapy is widely used.

The peculiarity of sanatorium-and-spa treatment is its preventive orientation, which helps to prevent the development of diseases and the effective treatment of diseases in the initial stage. In this regard, this issue is given paramount importance, for diagnosis and detection of various diseases at the initial stage.

To solve these problems, most health resorts are equipped with the latest equipment. Restorative measures are carried out in a complex manner; actively used climatotherapy in combination with physiotherapy, therapeutic nutrition, therapeutic physical education.


Sanatorium and resort complex (↑)

The sanatorium complex is represented by 22 institutions, including 13 republican property objects, 5 private and 4 departmental sanatoriums providing sanatorium and spa services. The total bed capacity of the sanatorium establishments in the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic is 5351 places.

• nervous system;

• respiratory system;

• gastrointestinal tract;

• musculoskeletal system;

• organs of the ear, eyes, skin;

• occupational diseases;

Also, one of the types of sanatorium treatment is a Health path  (Terrenkur) - dosed walking along the equipped route. This brand of Nalchik appeared in 1979 and was then the only one in the North Caucasus. Soon, the Health path became a favorite vacation spot for many citizens and visitors of the city, was named "1000 steps" or "Path of Health".

The Healt path covers an area of ​​1.6 hectares, and its total length is 2620 m, the highest point is 843.13 above the Baltic sea level, within the Kizilovka mountain range, the steepness of the rises is 20 to 45 degrees. The route was determined on the spot, taking into account the given slopes, geological composition of the soils. For Health path was chosen a beautiful mountain area with clean air, without crossing the center line of the cable car and the road to the top of the mountain. During its construction, the relief of natural gutters and existing vegetation were preserved.

The abundance of greenery and exceptional purity of mountain air filled with the scent of pine trees, the coolness of the waters of the mountain river Nalchik, the majestic panorama of the mountains and the predominance of sunny days create favorable conditions for rest and treatment.

The main means of treatment in the resort: climatotherapy, balneotherapy (iodine-bromine, nitric-thermal, hydrogen sulfide mineral waters), hydrocarbonate-sodium therapeutic mineral water, peloidotherapy (mud therapy using the world-famous mud of Tambukansky lake), paraffin-naphthalan treatment, hydrokinetic therapy Complex of physical exercises on mineral water).

Курорт Эльбрус

The mountainous region of Elbrus in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic has been a popular place on the tourist map of Russia for more than half a century, and tens of thousands of sportsmen and winter recreation enthusiasts from all over the world are eager to attend. They are attracted by the opportunity to conquer Elbrus - the highest mountain of Russia and Europe: its height is 5642 meters.

Modernization of the legendary resort and bringing the ski infrastructure in line with high world standards was launched in 2014 under the management of JSC "Resorts of the North Caucasus".

Now on Elbrus there are 6 tracks - two blue, three red, one green.

The snow-rich fields under the second turn of the cable car (from the “Mir” station) are especially interesting for snowboarders. For fans of freeride and backcountry there is an opportunity to join the groups to the guides.

In addition, the commissioning of the third stage of the Mir-Gara-Bashi cable car allows to increase the skiing period to the summer months.

Slopes which are outside the route in the Elbrus region are located mainly on the north side of the mountain. The northern slopes store fresh and furry snow throughout the winter. The diversity of the relief opens up opportunities for experienced riders, as well as for people who want to try off-piste descents for the first time, to get experience and great pleasure from skating on virgin land.


Чегемские водопады

Chegem waterfalls are considered one of the natural tourist attractions of Kabardino-Balkaria.

A group of Chegem waterfalls form 3 waterfalls. If we move along the Chegem gorge to the south you can see Small Chegem waterfall. It is located on the tributary of Chegem river. The waterfall is located about 200 meters from the road and outwardly resembles a huge stone trough, created by nature - over it falls the waters of the Adaysu river. This waterfall is considered the most powerful of the whole group, and its height is about 30 meters.

Further, to the south of the village of Khushto-Syrt, the Chegem gorge begins (Su-Auzu - "water from the throat") - the width of the gorge in the narrowest place is reduced to 25 meters. Within this gorge are the Great Chegem waterfalls. For traveler first of all opens a waterfall on the Sakal-Tup River - the right tributary of the Chegem river. Like the first waterfall, it looks like a giant trough with water, but different in shape and water content is much lower than that of Aday-Su.

Finally, about half a kilometer to the south opens the Main Chegem Waterfall on the Kayaarti river, another right tributary of the Chegem river. It is considered to be the most unusual of the group of Chegem waterfalls, since it is actually a whole group of waterfalls. Part of the water falls in Chegem in the form of small cascades from a height of 50-60 meters, the other sucks from the crevices of the rocks in the upper part of the wall. Falling from the ledges, the water breaks down and turns into a water dust, which, reflected in the sun, creates a sparkling rainbow pattern.


Голубое озеро

The blue lake is located at the foot of the Rocky Range, in front of a magnificent gorge. The lake is unique: with a relatively small surface, only 2.4 hectares, it has a depth of 258 meters. It is the sixth deepest lake in the former USSR. Microclimate of the lake is  ery peculiar and special.

The water temperature on the surface in winter and summer is 9.3 ° C. Not a single stream or river flows into the lake, but about 70 million liters per day flow out of the lake. Due to the presence of hydrogen sulphide, the water has a blue tone. Just behind the Blue Lake begins the gorge.

Since 2005 the Diving Center has been operating on the Blue Lake. Anyone has the opportunity to dive with the aqualung into the lake, and this applies not only to professionals who have an underwater certificate, but also to those who have never done this before, but want to learn.

One of the dangers that distinguish diving in a karst hole from sea dives is cold. You can protect yourself  by putting on warm clothes under a three-layer suit. The total weight of the equipment being worn can exceed 100 kg.

Another test is darkness. The sun does not penetrate to great depth through a relatively small window of the surface. Deeper than 100 meters, the darkness becomes pitchless, and you can not do without lights. Therefore, they work by two, insuring each other and providing psychological assistance.

You can get to the Blue Lake by shuttle bus, or by car from Nalchik. Near the Lower Blue Lake there is a hostel, which hosts guests all year round.


«Сто шагов к Кайсыну»

"Hundred steps to Kaisyn" - is a hundred marble slabs with poems of the national poet Kaisyn Kuliev carved on them and the statements of famous people about him.

The complex is a 350-meter-long wall that supports the slope along the road leading to the saklya where the poet was born, and protects the road from screes. One hundred of poems are divided into 10 thematic blocks, in particular: "Peace and joy to you, living!", "I tell my native land", "Prayer to the rocks". In the "Message to Women" block, 10 poems are dedicated to the mother, wife, beloved.

The idea of ​​the memorial complex appeared in 2012, when the family estate of the Kulievs was restored – it is a kind of block of 11 houses, the oldest of which is over 700 years old, it is the same age as the nearby Zylga cemetery.

Saklya, where Kaisyn Kuliev was born, is situated at the foot of the mountain. Two doors, one, as expected, leads to the Hall. Here the room is wide. Entering the second, we see a place for the hearth, the smoke from which went into the hole in the roof. Fragments of a spacious wooden trestle were preserved. Another room, intended for parents, was smaller. The youngest of nine children, Kaisyn, lost his father at the age of two. It was not easy for a boy from a distant Balkarian village to comprehend a great literacy and become a teacher in a pedagogical institute.

Today, more than 40 plates have been installed with the poems of the great Balkarian poet. The alley of the complex will be decorated with lanterns and benches.
