Sochi is one of the top destinations on the Russian Riviera, and is locally known as the Summer Capital of Russia. The vibrant nightlife, gorgeous coastline, and warm weather attract thousands of tourists each year; including famous Russian celebrities and politicians. Although the city’s population doubles during the summer high season, don’t expect everyone to speak English. Most of the tourism is domestic, and only a small percentage of visitors come from outside of Russia.
Sochi is an important tourist destination and boasts well over two hundred hotels, ranging from large resorts along the seafront to smaller boutique hotels within the city centre. Some international chains also have outposts in Sochi so if you want the familiarity of home while enjoying a trip to Russia, you’ve got it.
Central Sochi is where most of the buzz, and most of the hotels, can be found. During the summer the area becomes quite crowded, and hotel prices have a tendency to skyrocket. If you book far enough in advance you can sometimes find good deals. If you love being in the heart of the action it’s definitely worth paying extra. The Adler district, where the 2014 Winter Olympics took place, is another popular destination with lots of newly constructed hotels. Prices here can also be quite high during the summer.
If you’re looking for cheap accommodation your best bet will be the Lazarevskoye district. It’s a little way out of the city centre but there’s still plenty going on. The area has a massive coastline and as such is a popular summer destination in its own right. There’s a waterpark, a dolphinarium, and plenty of shingle beaches to lounge on.
