            Sochi is not only Russia's largest and most popular holiday resort; it has now also emerged as one of the country's top sporting destinations. The city hosted its first Formula One Grand Prix in 2014, followed by the 22nd Olympic Winter Games and 11th Paralympic Winter Games. It was also a host city for the 2018 FIFA Football World Cup. Nicknamed 'the summer capital of Russia', the city of Sochi often has more than 200 days of sunshine a year and is characterised by a unique blend of beautiful scenery, the warm azure waters of the Black Sea and high mountains of the Caucasus, all of which provides a distinct and spectacular setting for the Grand Prix. The 5.848-kilometre circuit is located within Sochi's dazzling Olympic Park and winds its way around many of the architecturally eye-catching venues that were built for the Games. 

           "I'm very impressed with the layout of the track" was the verdict of FIA Formula One race director and safety delegate Charlie Whiting. "The size of the project is very impressive".

Sebastian Vettel:
"It's an interesting layout with a good mix of high-speed corners and technical sections", he said. "It's a huge challenge in a Formula One car." 

Sochi's primary gateway is Sochi International Airport, which is situated just 7 kilometres from the circuit. As befits a major sporting destination, the city is well served by public transport. To get from the airport to downtown Sochi or the Olympic park, you can take a shuttle bus or travel on the train. Hire cars and taxis are also readily available, though Sochi's numerous parks, beaches and architecture also make it a pleasurable city to walk around.
