The Metalurgi sanatorium was completed in 1957 and was for the steelworkers of the Soviet Union.

It is one of several sanatoriums in Tskhaltubo that are partly abandoned and partly occupied by refugees from Abkhazia who arrived here as a result of the ethnic conflict between Georgia and Abkhazia between August 1992 and September 1993. About 8,000 to 9,000 refugees found refuge in Tskaltubo, where a number of sanatoriums were empty due to the collapse of the Soviet Union. The facility was meant to be temporary, but nearly three decades later, the makeshift apartments in the former sanatoriums have become permanent homes for new generations of families. In the hallways, power cables are sometimes tangled up and the doors are secured with padlocks.

This former sanatorium appeared to have a large population and had fewer damaged and abandoned ones
Parts than many other sanatoriums we visited.

The grand theatre/ballroom, or whatever it used to be, is no longer used. The main attraction here was the central part of the building, once the foyer, where there were large interior balconies and huge chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
The exterior of the building was also notable, if a bit difficult to photograph.

Wow, what a place! So strange how it's obviously been kept quite tidy in some ways.
