Cruises from Sochi
Sochi is a multicultural city with more than 450,000 inhabitants representing over 100 nationalities. It is not surprising that it is Russia's leading vacation resort welcoming almost three million tourists each year. Sochi stretches about 148 km along the Black Sea coast at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains, known as the ‘Russian Riviera’. It has a subtropical climate and has almost 300 days of sunshine a year.
Sochi was the venue for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. This included the construction of a new Olympic Park by the Black Sea coast in the Imeretin Valley, with venues clustered around a central area. The city is also one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
