All visitors can look forward to a great city as well. The city of Sochi is the pearl of the Crimea Peninsula- the most northernly subtropics. Sochi is directly situated at the black sea and is one of the most popular seaside and spa resorts of Russia. For a very good reason the area around Sochi is also called the Russian Riviera. The Caucasus with its mountaintops of over more than 3.000 meteres, is only 40 kilometers away from Sochi. This ensures that Sochi is situated in a unique way to be seaside and winter sports destination at once. The climate on the coast is Mediterranean, whereas the mountaintops of the Caucasus are covered with snow.
