Sochi – Russia’s Riviera
Lying on the Black Sea, Russia’s longest city (stretching for more than 148 kilometres) is particularly appealing thanks to its mild subtropical climate. Its unending, black-sand beaches are just perfect for long walks. What’s special about Sochi is that, although it is surrounded by snow covered mountains, it is also dotted with palms and citrus fruit trees thanks to its unique flora. Numerous thermal springs and wellness spas offer year-round relaxation. A UNESCO world natural heritage site since 1999, an excursion to the Caucasus Nature Reserve, which lies just to the east of the city, has become a must for all visitors.

The ski and holiday resort of Rosa Khutor, in the west of the Caucasus is one of the largest in the region.
