Greater Sochi
March 31, 2017 00:51


Greater Sochi is a truly gigantic metropolitan area stretching to 105 km along the sea. Mountains are coming close to the coast which does not let it grow wider, only longer.

This beautiful metropolitan area is called “polycentric” and “invisible”: it consists of many settlements and areas, known under their own names, but all of them belong to the administrative entity of Sochi. This “invisibility” causes problems for visitors of the area: it is not easy to guess that Adler is also a part of Sochi, besides, this is not an isolated locality, but the entire area including the Krasnaya Polyana village.

At the same time, Krasnaya Polyana itself has nothing to do with Sochi and is generally regarded as a separate resort entity. The M-27 Highway connects all coastal districts of Sochi, from Lazarevsky to Adlersky.

There are four of them in Greater Sochi: Lazarevsky, Tsentralny, Khostinsky and Adlersky. “Sochi itself” is actually Tsentralny District, the smallest in terms of its area, but the most densely populated. It is worth to tell a separate tale of the districts and settlements constituting Greater Sochi. They are different in atmosphere and in the specialization of spa services, prices and prospects.
