Sochi region is a real subtropical paradise. The mild and warm climate creates ideal conditions for beekeeping. A unique feature of the Sochi climate lies in the fact that the Sochi region is surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides, which protect it from cold winds and at the same time retain the accumulated heat, and on the fourth side there is the warm Black Sea, which, warming up in summer, gives off its heat all winter.
In the foothill and mid-mountain zones, broad-leaved tree species are widespread – edible chestnut, beech, oak, hornbeam, maple, linden.
There are numerous wild fruit trees here – real orchards, pears, apple trees, cherries, cherry plums, dogwoods, walnuts, hazelnuts, wild grapes, raspberries, Caucasian blueberries. Further on the ridges and mountain slopes, subalpine and alpine meadows opened up.
