Khostinsky District is a famous spa resort, and beach holidays here are less popular than health resorts.


Lazarevsky district is the most remote from the airport and the centre of Sochi. The territory of Adlersky district hosts the buildings that were built in both clusters of the Olympics-2014 - mountain cluster (Krasnaya Polyana) and coastal cluster (Olympic Park in Imeretinskaya Valley).


Sochi has long been a nightmare of a car-driver. The situation with regard to traffic jams worsened before the Olympic Games, but still improved after the introduction of new roads and interchanges - a relief road of Kurortny Avenue, as well as the new Krasnopolyanskoe Highway opened at the end of 2013.


All souvenirs at the resorts of Greater Sochi are, basically, the same. In the season of 2013/14 souvenirs with Olympic symbols practically drove away the traditional shells and trees of happiness.

Anzhero-Sudzhensk means both the mine and the Trans-Siberian Railway. The villages of Anzherka and Sudzhenka that merged into the town had appeared when coal had been found here during the geological exploration for the highway being constructed.


Divnogorsk climbs on a slope of a high hill like a cat. Pine trees on its boulevards, according to local residents, have not been planted they have been saved during the initial clearing of taiga.


Abaza is of interest for tourists not in itself, but rather as a transit point on their way to other places.


There is no tourism infrastructure in Anzhero-Sudzhensk. The city has the only Central Hotel with about three stars, one restaurant in it and several cafes.


One of the newest and most comfortable towns of Khakassia. A large ski resort is located close to Sayanogorsk.

People in Barabinsk bake delicious buns with raspberry, bilberry, and sea buckthorn fillings. The local dairy factory makes a very tasty melted butter.
