Sochi, Russia – 2014 Winter Olympics city

Not many people might know Sochi – a resort city on the Black Sea in Russia. In 2014 this city will host Winter Olympics at Krasnaya Polyana, mountain region in the vicinity of Sochi.


Sochi became a fashionable place to come for a vacation during Stalin era. He had his dacha there. After the collapse of the USSR and loss of Crimean peninsula to Ukraine, Sochi emerged as an unofficial summer capital of Russia.


In this photo tour I want to take you to my favorite places in Sochi. I hope you will enjoy it and open a new side of Caucasian mountains and the Black Sea.

We were treated to Krasnodarskiy tea with yummy hazelnuts, fig and feijoa preserves, and unforgettable buns with poppy seeds!


Samovar – fancy old-fashion tea kettle


Typical Russian Khokhloma painting


My favorite Dymkovo dolls, probably because they remind me of my childhood
