Sarikamis – Kars Overview
It is a touristic town, 50 km from Kars. The area surrounded by forests is of particular interest as a beauty spot which is also an important ski resort. Around the city are giant yellow pine trees and natural hard black volcanic stones, called obsidian.
The game-pavilion built for the Russian Czar Nikolai and the Turkish memorial commemorating Turkish martries of World War I are worth seeing.
