Sochi is the most popular spa and seaside resort in Russia.
It will gain worldwide recognition as venue of the Winter Olympic Games 2014 and further
notice as a venue for the FIFA World Cup in 2018. There will also be a Formula 1 event – the
Grand Prix of Russia - held in this buzzing place.
The city runs for 145 kilometers at the coast of the black sea and the Caucasus Mountains
begin to raise only some kilometers upcountry.
Enjoy the beaches, the subtropical vegetation, the numerous parks and monuments and the
somehow flamboyant mixture of Stalinist and art-nouveau architecture that characterizes the City.
Other places of interest are the Michael Archangel Cathedral and the famous Summer Theatre.
