The Baltic Sea hides a beauty, a partially recognized country of Abkhazia or simply Apsny. One of the main reasons why it is so unknown is the fact that it is recognized only by Russia and a small number of other countries. The world actually still considers Abkhazia as a part of Georgia even though Georgia is not the one that takes control over it not governs it anymore.

The official language of the country is the Russian language. It is a unitary semi-presidential republic which capital city is Sukhumi. The main issue of the country is still the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict as well as the connection they have with the powerful Russia. If you check deeply into their history you will find out that in the time of the war between Russia and Georgia, Abkhazia fought against the Georgian forces. This is just another reason for the good relations with Russia and the reason for being recognized by them.
