WAUW...I had never heard of this city, but..DAMN, it looks like paradise. It doesn't look Russian at all (no offence, I love Russia ) It looks like a resort city from Italy or France. It never ceases to amaze me, how beautiful Russia are...such a great and interesting country Thank you so much for sharing your photos from Sochi, my friend

I'll be back

I heard this city here 'cause its the next venue for the winter olympics.
I'm guessing there would be more construction developments in preparation.

Wow, amazing photo thread, vir2oz!

I was wondering what Sochi looks like. If you were to show me these photos and then have me guess where this is, I would never in a million years guess Russia (although the Cyrillic letters on signs give it away).

It seems so bizarre that a city that's warm enough to support palm trees will be hosting a Winter Olympics.

Really impressive! I doubt that many people are aware that Russia has these kind of summer destinations with such a warm climate.
