Chechnya , officially the Chechen Republic is a federal subject of Russia located in the North Caucasus Region. The republic borders other Russian Republic of; Ingushetia, North Ossetia, Stavropol Krai and Dagestan and the post-Soviet country of Georgia.
Chechnya came into the international spotlight in the 1990s and early 2000s because of two Russian invasions which sparked the first and second Chechen Wars. However, since 2009, the region has received large amounts of federal funding and infrastructure upgrades.
Today, Chechnya is quite safe and stable and its capital, Grozny, is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in all of Russia.
Tourism to Chechnya is on the rise. Because of instability after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Western tourists largely chose to stay away from this region in Russia, opting rather to visit other major Russian cities.
However, with the end of the conflict in 2009, stability has returned to the region and Russian and foreign tourists alike have begun to return to this beautiful, historical and untouched region.
Grozny, Chechnya's capital, has undergone massive renovations and infrastructure projects, providing its citizens with a brand new city and tourists with a long list of sites to see.
In addition, outside of the capital, Chechnya is home to unbelievable natural beauty, a long and interesting history and a hospitable local culture.
