Russia's Summer Capital

Called the "Summer Capital of Russia," the busy resort town of Sochi is best known as the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Agura Waterfalls and The Singing Fountains. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Sochi National Park, take in the waterfront at Marine Passenger Terminal, take in the dramatic natural features at Mamedovo Canyon, and don't miss a visit to Dagomys Tea Plantation.
