Adzyubzha (Georgian: აძიუბჟა; Abkhaz: Аӡҩыбжьа; Russian: Адзю́бжа) is a rural settlement in the Ochamchira District of Abkhazia, Georgia’s breakaway republic.

Situated at the mouth of Kodori River, the settlement was known as the most important centre of the Afro-Abkhazian population who lived in Adzyubzha and its vicinity. Adzyubzha had a population of 3597 people in 1989[1] but it was virtually depopulated following the 1993 War. The Georgian population (mostly Mingrelians and Lechkhumeli) moved to Georgia, while non-Georgians immigrated to other parts of Abkhazia as well as Russia.

Demographics[edit]

At the time of the 2011 Census, Adzyubzha had a population of 1,072. Of these, 84.0% were Abkhaz, 6.0% Russian, 5.8% Georgian, 1.0% Armenian, 0.7% Greek and 0.1% Ukrainian.[2]
