Sochi was always a very popular place to go on a vacation in Russia. Sunny weather, sea, restaurants, cafes - what else do you need to chill and enjoy your time-out. One more plus to Sochi is that this place is very unique for the Russian territory and government really tries to make it look attractive for tourists. Winter Olympics in 2014 was another provement of Sochi’s status. And one of the fanciest places in Sochi is Olympic village. It was built as a place for competitor’s and staff who are taking part in Olympics. The government even decided to build a thermal power plant to produce energy and create great condition for sportsmen.
Village is located in the Adlersky district, in Imeritinsky Valley near the Black Sea. It takes 72 hectares of space and contains 47 buildings. Here you can find many arenas where took places different competitions of Winter Olympics. For example, curling centre, “Ice palace”, “Ice arena”. Also, first “Formula 1” track in Russia was built there. There are many magnificent and interesting places in Olympic Village, Olympic park, so let’s talk a bit deeper about them.
This is the first theme amusement park in Russia, so it just had to be very good. Well, it really is - 20 rollercoaster, puppet show, dolphinarium and man other exciting objects for adults and younglings. Sochi Park takes 20,5 hectares of space and converts it into a great place to hangout with your friends or family. Also, it has a 4-star hotel on the park’s territory stylized like a medieval castle.
Olympic village as a residential complex
A big place with residential buildings or sportsmen and team stuff. Generally, it has 47 housings and can fit in near 3000 people. Also, near every house you can meet symbols of Sochi Winter Olympics: hare, leopard and white bear. One of the main goals for the village was to show Russian culture and traditions, which was done great. You can meet many places that associate themselves with different parts of Russian culture like ballet, classical music, literature, but mixed with the newest technologies. If you want to visit Sochi and have a marvelous experience - book your tickets for these hotels and you won’t regret.
This is a place that was built for curling games, obviously and can fit near 3000 spectators. Besides, it has also many other functions and objects like football fields, restaurants, dance halls.
Fisht Olympic Stadium
And, of course, the grandest stage of them all in Sochi - olympic stadium. It held opening and closing ceremonies. After Olympics, it was rebuilt as a football stadium and hosts matches as a part of the stadiums chosen for World Cup 2018. In my humble opinion, this is one of the most beautiful football stadiums in whole Russia, maybe even in the world.\
In conlusion, I’d like to say that you need to decide, what you want from olympic village and park. Sochi Park is always opened, but if you want to see spectacular events - be wise and look on internet the schedule. Anyway, it will be a magnificent trip for you.
