Welcome To ParadiZe
A project, a dream and an independent country; it’s no wonder those who get to taste KaZantip Republic see it as a way of life. This celebration is where beautiful, bronzed hedonists meet the golden sands of the Black Sea; an ideal where freethinkers can party between the palm trees and pyrotechnics of paradise.
The glorious KaZantip Republic has traditionally been located in Popovka, Crimea. It has moved this year to the gorgeous Georgian shores of Anaklia, a little further East on the Black Sea.
With its own PreZident, and ViZas for entry, this Shangri-La soiree delivers the decadent freedom of Woodstock for the electronic generation. Filled with dancers, theatre and art installations, as well as a huge extreme sports playground where revellers can kite-surf, wake board, skate or BMX, few innovative visions grow to be as wild and adventurous as KaZantip.
This unique utopia has its own city of culture which celebrates life with parties around the clock as 300 DJs, big and small, play across six dance floors. Boasting more than 30 bars and restaurants, revellers don't even have to leave if they don't feel they want to, instead they swing from hammocks, point for the lasers and fall in love with some of the most beautiful people in the world for a whole month.
You'll never look at life the same way again.

MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!
KaZantip Republic is now located in Anaklia, on the Eastern Black Sea coast in Georgia. With clear waters, golden sands and a 540-meter pedestrian bridge across the mouth of the river Inguri, this small resort city is a picturesque setting for this year's edition of KaZantip.
The Yellow Suitcase is one of the Republic’s main symbols and each year thousands of smiling revellers can be seen walking around with theirs, especially at the annual suitcase parade. Everyone you see with a Yellow Suitcase has had it approved by the Ministry of Yellow Suitcase Engineering and they are granted special, ViZa-free entry to the Republic territory.
In order to get free entry, revellers must have taken part in the yearly online registration process which lasts several weeks. You can only apply for registration of your Yellow Suitcase during this period of time and if your application is approved, your suitcase will ensure you an unlimited ViZa-free entry to the Republic.
