"Russia's Summer Capital"

Aptly monikered the ‘Summer Capital’ of Russia, Sochi boasts a coruscating coastline bejeweled with beaches and swaying palm trees. Gracefully sprawling for miles along the Black Sea, this bright and beguiling city once served as a summertime retreat to the ancient Russian elites, while today, it beckons citizens from every part of the country, and tourists from across continents, with wide, open arms. Having especially burgeoned after hosting the prestigious 2007 Winter Olympics, Sochi proffers an unparalleled wealth of beach activities, upscale shopping and a scintillating nighttime revelry. However, the city is as much historic as it is contemporary, harboring a wealth of ancient landmarks within its aegis. Tsentralny Raion comprises the city's historical district, its winding thoroughfares brimming with restaurants, nightclubs and boutiques. The heritage Sochi Rail Station, the Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel and the Sochi Winter Theater are some of its most prized landmarks, whereas Krasnaya Polyana is the newest addition to the city’s urban landscape, a massive Olympic snow-sport park that offers outstanding infrastructure to sports enthusiasts. Nature abounds at the Sochi National Park, a verdant oasis which is mottled with waterfalls, wildlife and enchanting forests, while the teeming Port of Sochi, with its assemblage of charming historic buildings, is the very locus of the city’s marine transportation system.
