Description of Krasnaya Polyana

Krasnaya Polyana (Beautiful or Red Glade in Russian) is a mountainous ski resort near Sochi, Russia that hosted 2014 Winter Olympics Games and Paralympics Events. You can take taxi from Sochi, but it is fairly expensive at a price ranging from 50- 70 US dollars and even more. It takes about 1 hour to get from Sochi to Krasnaya Polyana ski resort. Additionally you can also rent a car in the Sochi International Airport. However much cheaper option is by taking a bus 105 from Sochi Central Bus terminal or bus 135 from the center of Adler. It is about 60- 80 Rubles one way or 2.5- 3.5 USD. Rosa Khutor Alpine Resort is situated in Krasnaya Polyana. During Winter Olympics it will host snowboarding and skiing competition. The whole sport complex was constructed from 2003 to 2011 under supervision and guidance of Bernhard Russi, gold medalist of 1972 Olympic games. This part of Krasnaya Polyana was one of the first places to be completed and in February 2011 it already hosted the European Cup ski competition. A year later in February 2012 it hosted World Cup alpine races for both men and women. Rosa Khutor region of Krasnaya Polyana has 10 hotels with a total capacity of over 1600 rooms.
