Lazarevskoye (Russian: Ла́заревское; Adyghe: Псышӏуап IPA: [psəʃʷʼaːp]) is a microdistrict of Lazarevsky City District of the city of Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia. It was a resort settlement before 1961, when it was merged into Sochi.

Geography[edit]

The microdistrict is located on the shore of the Black Sea at the mouth of the Psezuapse River.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1869 as the village of Lazarevka in place of the former Lazarevskoye Fortress, which existed in 1839–1854.[1] The fortress was named after Admiral Mikhail Lazarev.[citation needed] Later the name of the village was changed to Lazarevskoye.[1]

On July 12, 1949, it was granted resort settlement status.[1] On February 11, 1961, it was merged into the city of Sochi and ceased to exist as an independent entity.[1]
