Recreation center "Magistral"
Krasnodar Territory is not only Russia's grain and vegetable granary, but also its tourist center. On the Black Sea coast of the region there are hundreds of recreation centers, campsites, sanatoriums and hotels. They receive millions of guests every year, providing treatment and relaxation for every taste. The recreation center "Magistral" is a great place for a relaxing and carefree family trip to the sea.

Mild subtropical climate, warm and clear sea, coniferous and deciduousforests, clear air and friendly people make Agoy a place to which you want to return year after year. The pride of the village is an amazing natural monument - a forty-meter sheer cliff of Kiseleva, which is located a couple of kilometers from Agoy.
