Things to Do in Sochi

Krasnaya Polyana Ski Resort
Russia’s premier mountain resort, Krasnaya Polyana shot to fame when it hosted the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Its long, scenic forest slopes are the perfect spot for beginner boarders and novice skiers. Meanwhile, challenging black and red runs and plenty of off-piste opportunities keep even experts entertained.
Beaches in Sochi
A mild subtropical climate and miles of Black Sea beaches make this Russia’s unofficial summer capital. Sochi sees its population more than double whenever the weather gets warm, with celebrities, sports stars and politicians all rubbing shoulders on its shingle shoreline. Head to the pebbly Primorskiy Beach to sunbathe in the heart of the city.
Historic Centre of Sochi
Sochi may be best known for its beaches, but the city centre is a masterpiece of Stalinist-era architecture. Neoclassical arches and columns characterise its buildings, from the Sea Port and Central Station to the Winter Theatre and Sochi Art Museum. Meanwhile, pretty Pushkinsky Park is home to the Anchor and Cannon – the city’s oldest monument.

Review score
Sochi is generally good off-peak season: warm, lost of plants, good local food and wine. A bit loud and "soviet-legacy" is still very strong there in terms of service. May be good for families as there are various attractions around. Best term - 1 week to combine sea shore and mountains.

Good place to spend time, enjoy vacations, to recover health and mind for any seasons, except summer - too expensive for no good reason, a lot of people and there are no a lot of good beaches, unfortunately.

What a fantastic city Sochi is. Many things to do out with the olympic parks however a 90 minute bus ride takes you to Rosa Khutor, which is well worth a1-2 day stay on its own.
