Volcano Tizdar in the village of For Homeland
Za Rodina village 45.356847, 37.098487
Perhaps this is the most popular mud "font" among tourists. There are always many who want to plunge, not with their heads, but on the neck for sure. A small foundation pit is filled with mud, into which it is immersed.

Monument to Lermontov
Mikhail Yuryevich stopped in the village of Taman on the road of Stavropol to the Caucasus. He outlined his acquaintance with Taman in his work “A Hero of Our Time”. The monument to the poet is erected in a small square named after him.
To get to this place, by car you need to turn right from the T-34 tank, and drive about 400 m to Pronina Street, where turn left. There is a small parking lot. Often there is a mini-market with souvenirs.
Lermontov House Museum
Not far from the monument is a house-museum dedicated to the poet’s stay in the village. The hut and shack, an old boat, a well and a cart are the main expositions.
A little further there is a modern building, where Lermontov’s paintings and works are exhibited, as well as things related to his name.
A ticket to the museum will cost 80 rubles. for adults, children up to 3 free.
Personally, after visiting the museum, I had a desire to re-read the novel “A Hero of Our Time”, written by a great poet.
At the exit of the village are the remains of the Fanagori fortress. Only a small earthen rampart reminds of its existence. If you look at the picture from space, you can see the outlines of an ancient building. It has the shape of a half-star. Curved shafts go to the Taman Bay. Those who wish can walk along them to the sea. Once there was Suvorov himself!
Currently, at the end of the central "beam", close to the road, monuments to Suvorov and Ushakov are installed. In honor of the 200th anniversary of the fortress, a memorial stone is installed. A little at a distance are three old cannons with cores.
A small house in the center of the village, where the source of fresh water is located, is one of the main attractions of the village of Taman and the entire peninsula. An unusual name for these places - the Turkish Fountain, attracts many interesting tourists. In any heat there is water in the fountain. And the whole secret is in the system of ceramic pipes laid several hundred years ago underground. In them, water condenses and enters the source.
The fountain is located in an open area. Look for such streets and houses as Pushkina, 15, Belikova, 35, Sosedskogo, 23, or move all the time right along Lermontov street.
Fans of military equipment will be curious to visit the museum of military vehicles, located in the city of Temryuk directly in the open. Here are military guns, tanks, planes and ships. Many samples of the Great Patriotic War.
The exhibition is located on the busy Kalinin Street, on a hill. In both directions there are parking places. The museum consists of two parts, which are located on opposite sides of the road. Therefore, you have to cross a fairly wide roadway. There is a zebra. But still be careful and careful!
For a trip to the museum it is better to choose a not very hot day. Since at high temperatures in the open space walking in the hills will not be very comfortable.
Tickets are inexpensive, only 80 rubles. for an adult. Separate photography - 50 rubles.
Museum of Cossack Life
This is the second exhibition dedicated to the Cossacks in Taman. It is located in the village of Starotitarovskaya on the main street. Nearby you can easily find a parking place.
Expositions are located in three small halls. There are few visitors. During our visit, we were alone. The female caretaker kindly told us about each exhibit.
There is no doubt something to see in Taman. You can plan a trip along the Taman Peninsula in advance, having thought over all the routes, or you can go to it spontaneously, after an idea that suddenly occurred to you while reclining on the seashore. One way or another, it will be interesting and informative for both adults and children. Therefore, when you are near Taman, be sure to visit this corner of the Krasnodar Territory.
We wish you all a pleasant and amazing journey!
