Sochi, the pearl of the “Russian Riviera”, is emerging as a trendy destination for travellers, evidenced by its ever-rising number of visitors and its selection of American and European retail shops. Developers have ambitious plans for Sochi and, in coordination with government-funded Olympic development, numerous projects are underway to make Sochi a must-see international destination. In addition to its famous ski slopes, Sochi also attracts visitors in the summertime, when its long stretch of Black Sea beaches beckons travellers. In spring, when the weather favours, it is possible to challenge the slopes in the morning and lounge on the beach in the afternoon.
