It is the largest tourist city in the region dubbed the “Russian Riviera,” as it prepares to see the world as the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Ironically, the Russian city of Sochi has a very mild climate for most of the year, in addition to the Black Sea that overlooks it, which is characterized by its warm waters that can swim in until October. The Arboretum and Rivera Gardens are among the most popular destinations in the city. The Caucasus Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for the city of Sochi, and these mountains include the nearby Krasnaya Polyana ski resort.

Tourist information about Sochi

While the sea is warm and the subtropical climate (among the hottest Russian destinations in winter), the rocky and gray beaches of Sochi are disappointing. You may find finer white sand in some private beaches in the summer months. In any case, the peak season on the beach (from May to September) is seeing a hike in prices. In recent years, Sochi has become more famous as a host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics (although events have already taken place at nearby resorts such as Adler and Krasnaya Polyana).

The most important and famous sights in Russian Sochi

Lenin Mosaic

How about this sparkling, red snapshot, 8 meters high from Ilyich as a background to your holiday photos, this beauty was unveiled in 1980 to celebrate the 110th birthday of the father of the Bolshevik revolution.


It is located on the beautiful outskirts of Sochi on the southeastern edge of the city with over 1500 types of trees and shrubs, including many types of palm trees. It is a comfortable place to roam around for a while. For a scenic overview, take the cable car up and then walk back.

Park Rivera

Park Rivera is a small but lively green park that crosses hiking trails and is full of games and rides. It is a fun place for hiking, especially if you have children who live. Some of the palm trees here were planted by Soviet and Russian astronauts.

Museum of Sochi History

It is a small museum that includes the archeological history of Sochi, its marine roots, its role in World War II and other aspects of its social history. What sets it apart is the Space Show, with the Soyuz 9 capsule that returned to Earth in June 1970 after 18 days in orbit. On board were the local boy, engineer Sevastyanov, and his pilot Nikolev.

Art Museum

In the middle of a lush garden, the Art Museum is housed in a classic building that is an artwork in itself. The permanent collection contains icons and old paintings from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first century, as well as coins and weapons from the first century AD.

Memorial to Victims of Political Repression

This humble memorial lists the dozens of Sochi residents who died in the purges that took place during Stalin’s era.
