Sochi (Сочи) is a city in south-east Russia on the shore of the Black Sea (see map).

With a permanent population of roughly 315,000 inhabitants (2004), millions more arrive each year for its favorable climate, beautiful landscapes, beaches, parks, health resorts, mineral springs, festivals and downhill skiing.

Sochi became a fashionable resort during the era of the USSR when Soviet elite (including Joseph Stalin) came to rest in the regions subtropical climate. Currently it is regaining its reputation as a world class retreat. It is now serviced by a large international airport and sea port as well as numerous 4-star hotels and resorts. The city is home to the annual Film Festival "Kinotavr" as well as a world class tennis school that has spawned the careers of such notable players as Maria Sharapova and Yevgeny Kafelnikov.
