Gagra, ABKHAZIA, 2009 - Cinema near sanatorium Skala, one of many destroyed Soviet sanatorium in Abkhazia, which was a popular holiday resort during Soviet times. The resort was developed intensively as part of the "Soviet Riviera". .Nowadays Gagra is a town in Abkhazia, the breakaway republic of Georgia, sprawling for 5 km on the northeast coast of the Black Sea, at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains. It had a population of 26,636 in 1989 but this has certainly fallen considerably due to ethnic-cleansing and mass expulsion of ethnic Georgians from Abkhazia..© ROB HORNSTRA/+31 6 14365936
