I'm Maria, producer of the "Voice of Russia" Broadcasting Company. The editors office of the radio would like to do a brief phone interview on obtaining a Russian visa by those who are going to attend the Olympics. Are the visas issued faster if you provide your ticket and spectator pass? Does it ease the procedure? If someone can speak about it, maybe you'd like to share your experience with "Voice of Russia"?
For those interested - here is our web-site: http://voiceofrussia.com/
Very much needed! Many thanks in advance!
How can I get from Moscow to Gelendzhik in December? Train? Bus?
How does one get from the cruise passenger terminal in Sochi to Stalin's former villa? I was in St. Petersburg earlier this year and got around fine using public transportation. I enjoyed the experience and I want to do the same using public transportation in Sochi. I have one of the new multiple-entry Russian visas
I'm going to Sochi as a volunteer, looking for someone who's also going to avoid to be bored during long trip, also it could be safe as I have never been there.
Is it hard to get from Lazarevskoye to Sochi for the Olympic games? I am looking at booking a hotel in Lazarevskoye for the Olympic games. How long is the train ride? How much does a train ride cost?
Hello, I am coming for the Olympics and one of the flights I was looking at arrives in at 1245am and I was wondering if it is safe for a single woman to travel from the airport to my hostel at that time of night or if it's better just to hang out in the airport until sunrise. Can you hang out in the airport? Never been to Russia. Also whats the best way to get from the airport to city center of Sochi? Thank you
My name is Graham and I have just been lucky enough to be picked for 3 weeks work during the winter Olympic games. My question is that my partner would like to also come for the atmosphere and bring our little girl she will be 2.5yrs by time the games start. Im planing to fly them into sochi from Moscow as I see this as the best option. Is there anything that we should be aware of when travelling here with our daughter? From reading about sochi it should like such a lovely part of the world and have always looked for opportunity to travel and let her see the world.
Im just looking for the views of others.
With the Sochi Olympics approaching soon, does anyone have any credible updates as to the ground transportation available e.g. airport transfers, and what Sochi/Adler excursions are now available for booking? There seems to be a sore lacking of info in these areas for this time period.
Any one know a good travel agent who can find accommodation in Sochi? We have been looking for 3 months and everything seems booked out. May have to look 30 - 50 km away but will need the rail nearby. Tried all the usual hotel web sites but all booked out.
I am travelling alone to experience my second winter Olympics in Sochi. I am having trouble finding a hotel and am wondering if it is because I am too early (as many are still being built) or if they are sold out (which would not be good). Also, in looking for places to stay in Sochi, I definitely want to be centralized and among the vibrant happenings of culture that the Olympics bring. Basically, any info on hotels, restaurants, and nightlife would be much appreciated!
I am writing this message at an internet cafe in which I have to use the cafe's computer (couldn't quite figure out how to change the settings on my computer to take its network line) at 60 RUR/hr, but would much prefer to just go to a cafe with wi-fi and nurse a piva, getting online with my own computer. I know there is a restaurant (Capri) that is far out from the center that has wi-fi (there is an ad.)
I will be going there from mid February through early April. I intend to take the marshrutka up to Krasnaya regularly to go skiing.
I'm working in Sochi from May 2013 for several months and i'd like to find somewhere to climb.
Are there any indoor climbing walls or climbing gyms in Sochi?
Also what is the nearest outdoor climbing area?
Any help would be appreciated.
I would like to go to Sochi in the winter of 2012-2013 for a month or so, and ski at the great resorts in Krasnaya Polyana. I think the visa (I am USA citizen) will not be a problem, and will be wanting to rent an apartment in Sochi. About every other day or so, I will want to take the train up to Krasnaya Polyana, and hopefully take some bus or marshrutka to the different ski areas from the train station there.
So for this to work out, I will need:
- an apartment to rent in Sochi, close to the train line to Krasnaya Polyana, or at least accessible by a bus or marshrutka to the train station that goes to Krasnay Polyana. -> I think this will not be a problem as Sochi is a very big summer destination and there should be plenty of apartments available in the winter.
- good schedule of trains to Krasnaya Polyana. -> I think this also not be a problem, but I would like to see the schedule.
- bus or marshrutka (mini-bus service from the train station in Krasnaya Polyana to the different ski resorts. -> I am not sure if this available. It seems that as a world class ski area, there should be easy transportation between the different resorts and the ski areas, but I have not been able to locate such information via the internet.
Any information on this would bu very helpful. срасибо
Im planning on living in Sochi/Krasnaya Polyana in February and March next year to ski and speak Russian. So I have a few questions:
1) Would it be better to live in Sochi and travel to Krasnaya Polyana to ski or to live there?
2) Could I find a homestay easily in either place?
3) Is the snow consistently good there?
4) Are the mountains open and not under construction?
A lot of questions but thank you very much! :)

2014 seems like a long time away but we are hoping to go for the olympic games in 2014. Would need to stay at Polyana area in the mountains. I want to get a feel for the area and ask what local customs i should be aware of? Things to stay away from? Will probably rent a house (lots of us going) rather than a hotel.
