The annual music festival in Sanremo, Italy is very popular in Russia, so it is no wonder that someone would name their restaurant after that town. Especially if it is an Italian restaurant. Sanremo in Sochi is noted not only for its cuisine but also for its seaside location, gorgeous views, and breezy vibe. The restaurant's designers aimed to create a unique "beach feeling," even covering the floor with sand for authenticity. The prices in Sanremo are quite high, but the food makes up for the price and the restaurant also serves as a venue for concerts of popular Russian musicians.
Postmodern Russian architecture, with its towers, columns, balustrades, and general opulence, owes a lot to the eclectic style popular before the revolution. A good example of this style in Sochi is Villa Vera, built in 1910. The building's old-time charm makes it a perfect backdrop for kitschy romantic photographs. Moreover, Villa Vera is situated in a beautiful park with cedars, cypresses, and palm trees. Definitely take a look at this landmark if you are nearby.
Sochi has a Japanese garden, located close to the city's main street, Kurortnyy Prospekt. It has everything that you might expect, from pagodas, Japanese lanterns and arched bridges, to a rock garden and an array of Japanese plants. It's a gorgeous place for a walk.
