Sochi 2014 Olympic Facilities
February 10, 2014 12:26


Preparations for the twenty-second Winter Olympics have come to an end and the Olympic facilities in Sochi are ready to host the best athletes from around the world. Top designers, engineers and architects worked on the design and construction of the arenas, ski slopes, trails and other sports facilities to make the competitions in Sochi as safe as possible, beautiful and memorable.

The map of Olympic venues in Sochi is divided in two parts: the mountain and coastal clusters, where all eleven sports facilities of Sochi 2014 Olympics are located. It was determined by the specifics of the winter sports, when some need mountain slopes and others require ice arenas.

Olympic facilities in Sochi have been tested and official sports competitions have already been held in some of them. Delegations from all over the world are eager to take a look at the locations of the best athletes' battles not only on Sochi 2014 pictures, available in the Internet, but also to see with their own eyes the venues of the great sports event. The map of Sochi Olympic venues makes it possible to appraise the beautiful composition of six buildings that are included in the coastal cluster and dimensions of five venues located in the mountain cluster.

The organizers’ concept was to place all ice arenas of Sochi 2014 Olympics in immediate proximity to each other. This approach was applied for the first time in the world, and led to the creation of a single Olympic Park, where it will be much easier to monitor the safety of athletes and fans. Park is able to accommodate up to seventy five thousand people, who came to support the athletes.

Sochi 2014 Olympic venues are made in today’s popular high-tech style. The architects tried to design Sochi 2014 Olympics stadiums more sensual, emotional and festive to avoid cold and impersonalized standard lines inherent in this modern style. All accompanying facilities that are part of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Park are of the same architectural trend. Organizers did their best to ensure the visitors can feel the atmosphere of a grand sporting festival and plunge into the world of uncompromising sporting battles. Below is the map of Sochi Olympic venues with pictures. By clicking the cluster image, you can find useful information on each of them.
