OVERVIEW

The gateway to the optimistically named ‘Russian Riviera’, Sochi is a Black Sea resort that received massive investment and media attention as host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics. However, what was billed as 'Sochi' for the Games actually embraced both the neighbouring resort of Adler – home to the Olympic ice-skating arena – and Krasnaya Polyana, a mountain village that hosted skiing and snowboarding events. No actual Olympic events were held in the city of Sochi.

Sochi, a Russian city on the Black Sea, is known as a summer beach resort and host of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Its parks include the palm-filled Arboretum. It's also notable for 20th-century neoclassical buildings like the columned Winter Theatre. Forested Sochi National Park is a 1,937-sq.-km protected area in the nearby Caucasus Mountains. Some 70 kilometers inland, Krasnaya Polyana is a prominent ski resort.


HIGHLIGHTS

 

Agura Waterfalls
Also known as Agursky, the Agura waterfalls are one of the most famous tourist attractions in Sochi. Located just outside the city, these majestic waterfalls that cascade from a height of 98 feet (30m) are a popular stop off along this popular hiking trail in the area along the Agura Ravine. The term 'Agura' means river or stream in Ubykhian. At the Eagle's Rocks hikers can enjoy the view of the crystal clear waterfalls crashing down to the oval pool below and enjoy the panoramic views over the city and Black Sea below.

 

Arboretum
Sochi’s lovely arboretum, with more than 1500 species of trees and shrubs, including numerous species of palm, makes for a relaxing wander. For a scenic overview, take the cable car to the top and walk back down.

 

Lenin Mosaic

Try the 8m-high Lenin Mosaic, opposite Park Rivera, for a backdrop with a difference for your holiday photos. It was unveiled in 1980 to mark the 110th anniversary of the birth of the father of the Bolshevik Revolution.

 

Vorontsovskaya Cave

A popular and worthwhile excursion from Sochi is to Vorontsovskaya Cave, inland from Matsesta. It has about 500m of illuminated passages with stalactites and the like. It gets cold inside, so dress accordingly. The scenic drive from Sochi takes about one hour; a round-trip taxi should cost about R3000 or you could join an organised tour (per person R400).
