Will it be possible to relax in the self-proclaimed countries

Territories that declare independence without the consent of the states in which they belonged are called self-proclaimed …

Will you be able to relax in the self-proclaimed countries
Is there tourism in them and what will really happen if you visit them?

Abkhazia
Previously, it was part of Georgia, but because of the conflict, which lasted about 10 years, in 1992 the state split. Today, the republic, which has gained independence, is recognized by Russia, Syria and 3 states without representation. On its territory there is a New Athos monastery, Lake Riza. Tourism is underdeveloped here, but it does not discourage travelers. In Abkhazia, you can relax inexpensively, and they travel for a couple of days, mostly from Sochi.

Abkhazia
In the border control zone in the capital of Georgia there is an announcement that people entering from Abkhazia from Russia are strictly prohibited from entering Georgia. In fact, according to the stories of tourists, there were no problems. However, this is understandable, because to get to the territory of the unrecognized republic, it is enough to have a Russian passport with you. The visa does not require marks in the passport is not set.

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
The division of Cyprus took place in 1974, when Turkey invaded to annex the island to Greece. The attempt failed, but more than 35% of the island’s territory was occupied. After 9 years, a new republic was proclaimed here, the TRNC. Today, only Turkey recognizes it. From here, the easiest way to get to Northern Cyprus is by ferry or by plane from Istanbul, Ankara and some resorts.

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
It is enough for those who are in Cyprus to cross the land border, and rarely are they denied entry into the territory of the unrecognized republic. Among the tourists on its territory are Turks, tourists from Germany, Great Britain. They are attracted not so much by the sights (there are few of them in the north), as by a quiet and relaxing inexpensive vacation. The beaches here are not crowded, there is a casino (they work legally).

Kosovo
Previously, the republic was part of Serbia, but in 2008 proclaimed its independence. It has not yet been recognized by Russia, Serbia, China, Spain and other countries. Some tourists are afraid to enter Kosovo, while at the same time, those who crossed the border admit that they ask the customs to fill out a questionnaire, but the staff are very polite.

Kosovo
Locals also treat tourists friendly, most speak Russian. Some even invite to dine or spend the night in case of problems with food and housing.

At the entrance to Kosovo, Russians put up a visa. If at the same time they have multiple Schengen, allowed to stay in the territory up to 15 days. There are no resorts here, but the rest are beckoned by calm streets, reminiscent of Soviet cities, old Ottoman quarters.

Palestine
Once it was part of the Ottoman Empire, which split after the First World War. The UN approved a plan for dividing the territory into 2 states in 1947, provided that Jerusalem falls under international control. Not everyone agreed with this, and the following year, with the proclamation of the State of Israel, a conflict began here.

Palestine
At the moment, Palestine is partially recognized (Russia, a number of UN member countries). It includes the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. It also claims East Jerusalem, which is controlled by Israel (therefore, the UN considers it occupied).

People go to Palestine to see the ancient city of Hebron, to visit Bethlehem. To get to the West Bank, cross the border from Israel (Russians do not need a visa). Since Israelis are forbidden to go to Bethlehem, driver guides hide an Israeli passport and show a Russian foreign country.

Holidays in Russia
