Sochi is a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast near the border between Georgia/Abkhazia and Russia. It is Russia's largest resort city. Being part of the Caucasian Riviera, it is one of the very few places in Russia with a subtropical climate, with warm to hot summers and mild winters. With the alpine and Nordic events held at the nearby ski resort of Roza Khutor in Krasnaya Polyana, Sochi hosted the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games in 2014, as well as the Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix from 2014 until at least 2020, subject to the circuit being ready in time. It will also be one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Sea Port of Sochi - The port has two passenger berths that have a total length of 330 m, and can accommodate vessels up to 220 meters with a draft of 8.5 m. The port does not freeze; marine navigation is possible year round. Through it are provided passenger service from Poti and Batumi in Georgia, and cargo service to the Turkish ports of Trabzon and Istanbul. In 2013 the port was modernized as part of the renovations in the city for the 2014 Winter Olympics. New berths were constructed. Sochi seaport is now able to admit cruise ships up to 300 meters long almost all year round. Before reconstruction the seaport of Sochi could admit only cruise ships up to 200 meters long. After the reconstruction the port was able to admit simultaneously two cruise ships and a ferry.
