The city of Sochi was founded on the Black Sea coast on April 21, 1838, as a fort called Alexandria in the of the Russian Empire’s mountainous North Caucasus region. For more than a hundred years, Sochi, often named ‘Russian Riviera’, was the main resort of vacation for Russian people. After winning the bid to host the Olympic Games, Sochi reshaped its looks to modern ones, now being an all-season resort of international level.
Sochi is located approximately midway between the North Pole and the equator, at the latitude of Nice, Toronto and Vladivostok. The length of the city on the Black Sea coastline is about 145 km. In Sochi, there are several natural-climatic zones: coastal, piedmont, high-mountain and alpine. Sea and mountains have a significant impact on Sochi’s climate. The mountains protect it from cold winds; the sea warms it up in winter and cools down in summer.
It will take you not more than an hour to reach the mountains and change from beach flip-flops into snowboarding boots.
