First off: if you’re thinking that visiting this location would be an interesting day trip, you’d be right.

It’s the rare occasion where getting into one of these abandoned sites is monumentally easier than getting into the country where the site can be found.

Such is the case with the Council of Ministries building.

It involves applying for permissions to enter Abkhazia (online, at least), obtaining the proper visa, crossing a border with Georgia (which we are told is an exercise in frustration most of the time) and finally having to register your visa in Abkhazia so they know you’re on their soil.
