Experience To Swim In The Black Sea In Sochi Russia

The city of Sochi Russia is technically 147 km (92 mi) long, but the port, best beaches and grooviest facilities are contained within the 12 km (7.5 mi) of Sochi proper. The city, at the heart of the ‘Russian Riviera’, is an oddity in many different ways. Oddest of all is that a city famous as a summer playground for the Russian elite should be hosting the Winter Olympics of 2014. Politics aside, there are good geographical and historical reasons why Sochi has reached this pinnacle of resort aspiration. Because it faces south, with the Caucasus Mountains rising immediately behind, it benefits from a micro climate that, in turn, has for a hundred years attracted interest from the most powerful people in Russia.
