F1 Grand Prix in Russia

Sochi is not only Russia’s largest and most popular holiday resort, but it has now also emerged as one of the country’s top sporting destinations. Sochi hosted its first Russian Grand Prix in 2014, the same year that the 22nd Winter Olympic Games was staged in the city and surrounding mountains. It was also a host city for the 2018 FIFA Football World Cup.

Nicknamed ‘the summer capital of Russia’, the sub-tropical climate of Sochi offers more than 200 days of sunshine a year and is characterised by a unique blend of beautiful scenery, the warm azure waters of the Black Sea and high mountains of the Caucasus, all of which will provide a distinct and spectacular setting for the Grand Prix.

The 5.848-kilometre Sochi Autodrom circuit is located within Sochi’s dazzling Olympic Park and winds its way around many of the architecturally eye-catching venues that were built for the Games.

Sochi’s primary gateway is Sochi International Airport, which is situated just 7 kilometers from the circuit. As befitting a major sporting destination, the city is well served by public transport. To get from the airport to downtown Sochi or the Olympic park, you can take a shuttle bus or travel on the newly-constructed Sochi Aeroexpress railway. Hire cars and taxis are also readily available, though Sochi’s numerous parks, beaches and architecture also make it a pleasurable city to walk around.

It’s worth noting that foreign citizens are required to have a visa to enter the Russian Federation, although a visa is not needed for the tourists from the countries with which the Russian Federation has established a visa-free entry agreement.
