Short review 

First of all let’s define what it is all about.  Sochi is located in in Krasnodar Krai on the north-east coast of the Black Sea. It has a second name as a Resort or Summer capital of Russia. It is the longest city of Russia, with the length of 145 km. The climate is always very warm and comfortable:  from 30 °C (86 °F) in the hottest summer (average – 24 °C) to little below 10 °C (50 °F) in winter.  


Sochi in summer is a perfect place for different activities. Those who prefer quiet and measured rest will fall in love with swimming in a warm sea, sunbathe on the beach and enjoy splendid views on a sea surface and mountains or take an excursion to “33 waterfalls”.  Don’t forget that there is another side to see all the sights of Sochi: admire the extraordinary landscape and architectural monuments of the best architects of our country with a boat ride along the coast on a catamaran, sailing or motor yacht. If you are lucky, you will meet the dolphins in the open sea, they often accompany pleasure boats. Also tourists can enjoy the sightseeing from the bird’s view with balloon flight and paragliding.

To have more fun you should visit local Attraction Park “Sochi Park” and Water Park “Aqua Loo”. For those who like adventures and extreme, there is a great choice of activities: climbing in the mountains or rafting on the turbulent mountain river, which will make you breathless! Hiking of any complexity, mountain biking, rock climbing, horse riding, canyoning, jeeping, windsurfing, diving, sailing and many others. OLTA Travel is ready to create the best memorable trip for you!

Sochi in summer


In winter the number one goal for you will definitely be Krasnaiya Polyana, the resort village, which is also called “Russian Switzerland” for its majestic mountain slopes. It is located at the height of 600m above the sea level. Right here the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games took place in 2014. It is a perfect place for skiing and snowboarding! Fans of extreme skiing can climb on helicopter above the clouds, to the very tops of mountains, reaching heights of more than 2 thousand meters.

Remember that in mountains the temperature drops to 6 ° per each thousand meters. So, if there is + 25 °C down on the coast, on the height of 3000m it exceeds + 7 °C. In this regard, Krasnaya Polyana offers its visitors a unique package - skiing plus the sea. So after a good skiing you can go down to the coast and enjoy swimming in the warm sea! Besides conquering the slopes we can offer excursions and exciting climbing to the mountain tops.

Winter in Sochi is warm and snow is a rare phenomenon, it covers only mountains. So you can also have a great time visiting museums and famous architectural monuments, such as Summer cottage of Stalin, Tea houses, where you can taste Russian tea with cakes and honey, The ruins of a Byzantine church, Museum of history of Sochi and many others. Or just take a wonderful tour of this beautiful city!



In autumn when the weather is still warm it is perfect to visit open-air museums and parks.

The best one is Arboretum Park, the area where you will find more than 1800 types of plants, trees and shrubs from different parts of the world. Also it is home for rare animals and birds.  Arboretum consists of two parts: the plane at the bottom and on top on a steep mountain slope. Both parts are connected by a tunnel and the cable car.

The unique construction of the Arboretum is a huge marine aquarium, where depending on the season lives from 14 to 27 species of fish of the Black Sea.

Another favorite place of tourists in Sochi is The Ahun's mountain Watchtower. It reminds a medieval castle, but in fact its age is not so solid. The tower's height - 30.5 meters and the highest point of the main mountain achieves 633 meters, so it offers you a stunning view of the Black Sea coast. If that is not enough for you, than try to get on the Ferris wheel and enjoy the panorama!



Spring is the best time to improve your health and Sochi is the best place to do it!  Today in this region there is more than 50 mineral springs and large reserves of therapeutic muds which help to treat many diseases. About a hundred SPA and health resorts provide treatment of heart disease, stress, chronic fatigue, skin problems, weakness, respiratory, gastric diseases, bone diseases and more. 

We highly recommend you to take a Matsesta bath - Russia's largest therapeutic and prophylactic complex. Matsesta means “fire water” because of its high content of hydrogen sulfide. Listen to numerous legends about the history of this miraculous "fire water" and experience it yourself!


Business tourism 

No doubt, Sochi is a good place to spend your holidays. But there is also well-developed business tourism in the city. Large-scale international meetings and forums, congresses and conferences at various levels are taking place in Sochi every year. During the summer, the political and business elite visit Sochi for meetings between the heads of foreign states, Russian and foreign politicians, leading bankers and businessmen.

So if you are searching for a perfect place to organize your business event, Sochi is a good one! OLTA Travel will help you to organize it on the highest professional level and create the best memories of Russia for all the participators.
