My dotted map
The map is the points I marked on the OpenStreet Map. Moreover, almost all of them are also on the OpenStreet itself, but in my opinion it is more convenient to use dots, otherwise eyes will run wide. A little later, each of the places will be described by me and, clicking on the link, you can see photos, a description of the place and information.
I recommend installing the MapsMe or Osmand application, uploading a map of the Krasnodar Territory there and getting an excellent detailed map on the spot for orientation.
