A unique monument of megalithic culture Editors' Note

The Dolmen of Volkonka is the only remaining full-sized and well-preserved, monolithic-type dolmen in the world. A popular tourist destination, the dolmen is a protected monument.

The Dolmen of Volkonka is fully carved in stone. Inside, the room is not polished, perhaps because the monument was not completed.

Not far from the dolmen you’ll find a hydrogen sulfide mineral water spring, one of the many “healing springs of Sochi.”
