      city, Krasnodar kray (territory), southwestern Russia. It lies at the head of Tsemes Bay on the northeastern coast of the Black Sea.

It is still a major Russian port on the Black Sea, with a naval base, shipbuilding yards, a refrigeration plant, grain elevators, and an oil-pipeline terminal.
