Referred to as the 'Russian Riviera', Sochi boasts an inviting subtropical climate, pebbled beaches, lush forests, botanical parks, waterfalls, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Caucasian Biosphere Reserve, and a world-class skiing resort Krasnaya Polyana.

Located in 70 km away from the city centre and 40 km away from the airport in Adler, 1,968 feet (600 meters) above sea level, Krasnaya Polyana, meaning 'red meadow' is becoming increasingly popular as a ski holiday destination. Skiers and snowboarders here can enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the West Caucasus with height up to 2500 meters tracks. At present 3 mountain-skiing complexes are functioning: "Alpica-Service", "Laura" and "Mountain Carrousel". All the complexes are at a distance of 1-3 km from each other. Here are the splendid opportunities for isolated rest. Those who has once stayed there are eager to come back again.
