A cable car will take you from the upper part of Pyatigorsk to the top of Mashuk for fresh breezes and a great panorama. It takes you 3-4 hours to come up and down the mountain. On your way you’ll be able to visit the Lermontovs Grotto, a small cave which the writer used to visit, the Academic Gallery built in 1851 by an English architect Upton to house one of Pyatigorsks best known springs, and the Proval, a cave open to the sky where 19th century couples would dance on a bridge over the pond of light blue sulfurous water.
