How to get to Sochi?

The city of Sochi is located on the Black Sea coast in the Krasnodar Territory, in Russia. This is a beautiful resort city, moreover, in 2014 it was here that the Olympics took place.

We get to Sochi by different types of transport

There is an airport in Sochi, stations to which electric trains are moving. It can be reached by car, bus, train, by sea and air. Let's look at various options for how to get to Sochi from Moscow.

A train

There is a direct train from Moscow to Sochi, moreover, in the summer, additional trains are brought to the railway due to an increase in the number of applicants.

Traveling from Moscow by train will take about a day. It is important to remember that if you want to get to Sochi by train, you need to take care of the tickets in advance.

There are several stations in Sochi - in Lazarevskoye, Adler and other districts of the city (only 4 stations). The central station is located on Gorkogo Street, 56.


Traveling by bus is a bit faster - 28-30 hours. You can buy tickets for a direct bus from Moscow to Sochi during the holiday season at many travel agencies, and, moreover, not very expensive.It is also worth remembering that this is a less comfortable type of travel, since at least you can lie down on the train, and it is very hard to sit on the bus for more than a day.

Personal car

This type of transport can be quite convenient, since stops can be made anywhere and anytime, it will be fast, and you will also have the opportunity to visit the beautiful places and sights of the cities on your way. In order to go on a trip by car, you need to know the route, which consists of only two routes. From Moscow, drive along the M4 Don-Novorossiysk-Moscow highway and drive south according to the signs Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, and Dzhubga. Then you need to go on the highway M27 "Dzhubga - Sochi", which leads to the resort.


The fastest and most comfortable way to travel is an airplane. In this case, you, being in Moscow, for example, at 17:55, will arrive in Sochi already at 20:20. Of course, this is the most expensive form of transport. But, if you can afford it, then for you it will be the best option.

By the way, in Sochi there is a race track for holding Formula 1 competitions.
