Soci is situated between the Black Sea coast and the foot of the Caucasus mountains in the Krasnodar region. Soci is situated on the northern edge of the subtropics. Therefore, it has became a popular spa town and a tourist resort. It is the first Russian city which won the right to host the Winter Olympics in 2014.

Glances into History

The first mention of the city Soci dates back to 65 BC, when it existed under the name of Zichy or Dzihi. The area belonged to the Chazars between the 6th – 15th centuries. There are remains of the ruins of the Byzantine basilica of that period. Until the late 15th century the town was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. After the defeat of the Turks in 1829 the whole area of the Black Sea coast was devolved on Russia . Soci became a Russian city in 1838, when a fortress Alexandria was built. In 1917 Soci became the city , and it has become a recreational resort and Stalin´s summer residence. Soci has developed a great reputation as a holiday resort and has become a "good address" also for President Putin, who has his summer house there.
Soci is one of the top tourist destinations in Russia . It offers many tourist attractions. The main source of income is tourism. Tourist boom came in the second half of the 20th century and greatly influenced architecture throughout the city Soci . There were founded twelve modern cinemas, a dolphinarium, luxury hotels, restaurants, a summer theater, and a permanent circus. The coast of Soci offers almost countless hotels, spas, cafes, bars, amusement centers and aquaparks. There is a big attraction near Soci , the Soci National Park or Caucasian Nature Reserve, which is the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
