Adler: Walking Route
August 5, 2020 15:42

To discover Adler it is worth starting the walk from the Imeretinsky Park station.   The building made of glass and concrete, super-modern and high-tech, was built specifically for the Olympics - the first station in Russia to meet green environmental standards. There is a palm alley next to it, a favorite place for Sochi photographers and newlyweds.

Then we turn to the Olympic Park. Here, in addition to admiring the objects of sports glory, you can visit one of the many museums, for example,   in the Museum Center. It sheltered the Nikola Tesla Electric Museum - an interactive one, where instead of lectures, visitors will enjoy performances and  feel like  students of a sorcerer.

There  is the Leonardo Museum nearby, which displays working models and mechanisms assembled by Russian historians and restorers according to Leonardo da Vinci's drawings. A perpetual motion machine, a glider, a crossbow, a catapult, a trebuchet and other exhibits, conceived 500 years ago and admiring scientists to this day.

If you want to travel back to the Soviet past, visit the USSR Museum. Opened with the slogan "Welcome to childhood!", it collected five thousand exhibits under one roof, reflecting the way of life and ideals of that time.

Do not miss the Bogatyr hotel complex, a fairytale castle in the heart of the Russian Disneyland.  It   is open for walks for everyone.

Do you want to see the whole complex  from a bird's eye view? Then you need the Ferris Wheel. The booths soar to a height of 60 meters, where you can take a look at the stadiums   in the Olympic Park, and the Caucasus mountains surrounding Adler, as well as the sea coast. The "flight" lasts 15 minutes.

Now it's worth walking to the embankment. Long and very beautiful, it separates the sea and the Olympic venues, giving excellent views to those walking. Here you can rent a bike and ride, the length of the embankment  is 7 kilometers.  There are many cute cafes here.

Taking a walk, you pass numerous hotels and come out to the Natural Bird Park. Its territory is large and beautiful, it is definitely worth seeing. A wilderness corner that has survived despite the global redevelopment of the area in preparation for the Olympics.  

Museum of the history of the Adler region is an Archaeological Museum. It shows a collection of paleontology and archeology, finds from the sites of ancient people, medieval settlements  on the territory of Adler. There is an excursion about the ancient inhabitants of the Black Sea coast,   the fortress of the Holy Spirit,  the pre-war Adler and the culture and life of the peoples inhabiting it.

You can finish your walk with the historical exhibition by plunging into the past of the famous resort, or continue it   relaxing on the beach and planning new routes.
