Adler Russia

Sandwiched between the mountains and the sea, Adler is a microdistrict located along the coast in Sochi. One of the most popular Black Sea resorts in Russia, it offers secluded pebble beaches and a waterfront promenade where you can enjoy a sunset stroll.

The 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics were Adler’s claim to fame, with a shining new Olympic Village built for the mega event. You can enter the Sochi Olympic Park for free, and walk around admiring sleek structures like the Fisht Olympic Stadium, Bolshoy Ice Dome and Iceberg Skating Palace. At night, the park comes alive with the sporting venues all lit up, dancing light-and-music fountains and a gleaming installation of the iconic Olympic rings.

For a taste of the pristine alpine air in Adler, head to the Caucasian State Biosphere Reserve – a 280,000-hectare expanse of forested mountains, lush meadows and verdant valleys. You can explore the terrain by hiking or horse riding, pausing to spot the local flora and fauna, take in rushing waterfalls and swim in glacial lakes.

On your Adler trip, set aside some time to visit Sochi Park – a colourful wonderland populated by thrilling rides and rollercoasters, a castle-themed hotel and a dolphinarium. Consistently ranked as Russia’s best amusement park, it offers whimsical lands with fun activities for adults and kids alike, including a Ferris wheel, a fairytale carousel, a Space Jungle playground and plenty of uniquely themed cafes and restaurants.
