About the Games

First Winter Games for Russia

The 2014 Olympic Winter Games were the first time that the Russian Federation hosted the Winter Games; the Soviet Union hosted the 1980 Summer Games in Moscow. The host city, Sochi, has a population of 400,000 people and is situated in Krasnodar, which is the third largest region in Russia.

Two Clusters

The Games were organised in two clusters: a coastal cluster for ice events in Sochi, and a mountain cluster located in the Krasnaya Polyana Mountains. This made it one of the most compact Games ever, with around 30 minutes travel time from the coastal to mountain cluster.

Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games Legacy

Discover the lasting legacy that this edition of the Olympic Games created for its hosts.

Coastal Cluster

The Sochi Olympic Park was built along the Black Sea coast in the Imeretinskaya Valley, where all the ice venues—such as the Bolshoi Ice Palace, the Maly Ice Palace, the Olympic Oval, the Sochi Olympic Skating Centre, the Olympic Curling Centre—along with the Central Stadium, the Main Olympic Village, the International Broadcast Centre and Main Press Centre, had been built anew for the 2014 Games. The Park ensured a very compact concept with an average distance of 6km between the Olympic Village and the other coastal venues.
