Parking in Sochi paid and free - is it all bad?

If you are on this post, then you already know aboutthat “Sochi” and “parking” in one sentence usually occur in a negative way. That Sochi is a hell of a motorist and it can be convenient to drive here by car, but in the end everything will turn into a permanent search for parking. But, firstly, it does not always work this way, and secondly, it all depends on what to compare. We must understand that this is a resort and the number of people in the summer season increases several times. It would be strange to expect empty streets.

Parking features in Sochi

Parking problems due to mountainous terrainand the small width of the streets that has developed here historically. And also the fact that in the summer half of Russia comes here, that is, by definition, there can be no problems with the park. I sometimes had the impression that Sochi was simply not designed for so many tourists.

If you are planning to come to Sochi by car or rent it upon arrival (I recommend Economybookings), then you have 4 options for the future.

  • Hotel. Not all hotels have their own parking, for example, just plain street is used. The smaller the hotel, the less likely the parking. Also, if the parking is small, there may not be enough space. When you book a hotel (I recommend checking discounts through RoomGuru), always look at the list of services if there is private parking and read the reviews as it is in fact.
  • Private sector. In private houses, where rooms are rented, there are also usually several parking spaces in their own courtyard. Do you have enough space, the question, find out on arrival. Also, cars often stand behind each other, which complicates logistics and operational departure from the yard.
  • Apartment in new building. In the elite class new buildings, private house or underground parking can be provided, and if the landlord has bought a place there, then you can use it. But this is not always the case, because it is not profitable.
  • Apartment in the old house. There is usually a pipe. Residents of old houses are forced to solve parking problems by illegal means, being carried away by squatting, hanging chains and installing frogs. Everywhere in the courtyards, butt-car parking is practiced, when one car closes the other, and drivers call each other by phone left under the windshield.

In short, park in the evening in the courtyardsResidential areas may be problematic for you, but this is normal in any city and Sochi is not something outstanding in this regard. The entire elite is fenced off from the outside world, and there is no passage to you, and the old quarters pop up from the personal equipment of the old-timers, and you have to go around looking for free or paid parking. I remember, in the center of the city, I could not find a place on a paid evening.

Types of parking in Sochi

Sochi is a beautiful town with a difficult roada system that has undergone significant improvements during the preparations for the 2014 Olympics. However, these changes affected mainly the outskirts. The central area of ​​the city in terms of expanding the roadway and increasing the number of parking lots has acquired not as much as we would like, but still people are not left to fend for themselves. In addition to parking in the residential sector, which you will need in terms of night parking, you have a wide selection of parking in the center of Sochi.

Municipal parking

Most popular streets, where the width of the roadallows parking, were declared municipal parking. Naturally - paid. All this economy is marked on the ground with road signs and equipped with parking meters. Of the features of municipal parking: the price is 50 rubles per hour, the fine is 1000 rubles (hello from Sochi residents to Muscovites, with their 2.5 thousand fine). Payment must be made in 15 minutes, otherwise a passing photofixing machine will send your number to the database.

Payment for municipal parking is made ina parking machine using a bank card (they do not accept cash), via SMS or via the Sochi Parking Space application. Bonus from the city of Sochi - paid parking time from 8 am to 20 hours, that is, living nearby you can park for the night for free. All municipal parking lots are drawn on the map of the official site "Parking space of Sochi", you can see everything there in advance.

Private paid parking

In addition to collecting money in the city budget, weaningbanknotes from the population involved and private entrepreneurs. In the center of Sochi, on the pyatichki, which do not allow to build a residential building (the ground there is golden), paid ground parking is organized. There is just a fenced area, there are car parks with awnings and sinks, there are small buildings of several floors, multi-storey car parks with elevators or automatic platforms in general. They are spread all over Sochi, and I have mapped the most useful ones on the map at the end of this post.

Features of private parking: price - from 100 rubles per hour, convenient location, guarded territory, in some places it is more profitable to park for a long time. The fact is that in some parking lots you will be allowed to get up for 12 hours for 200 rubles. On especially expensive plots of land or in special parking complexes (for the construction of which there is a lot of money) you can run into a high price tag and even some sort of price list with a system of discounts or season tickets. But such parking lots are often empty because of their unhealthy pricing policies.

Free parking

As you have already read above, in the center of SochiFree parking is municipal parking until 8 am and after 8 pm Large free parking is available in new areas of Adler, in the Olympic Park, but so that they come across the same in the center of Sochi - alas. Just physically there is no such area, but no one bothers you to move a few blocks away from the center and leave the car in the private sector: during the day there is a place, because people are leaving for work.

Features of free parking: it is free and you have to search for it for a long time. If you do not know the city, this turns into a fascinating quest, so here's a hint - the Winter Theater. Parking on the square in front of it is free, but you must arrive there in the morning, no later than 8-9 hours. Left the car and calmly walk on waterfront or around the city. Otherwise, you will have to leave the car somewhere on the outskirts of civilization and walk a lot. What is good for health, but not for forty-degree heat and not with children.

Parking at the airport of Sochi

Parking at Privokzalnaya Square (racks №№ 1,2,3): free 15 minutes, then 200 rubles per hour, full or incomplete, and 1000 rubles worth parking per day.

Service (daily) parking (rack No. 4), where the first 15 minutes are free, then at 150 rubles per hour or 700 rubles per day.

Parking VIP-terminal: the first 10 minutes are free, then at 200 rubles per hour or 1000 rubles per day.

Parking on the territory of the VIP-terminal: the first 10 are free, then at 3000 rubles per hour.

How does the parking meter in Sochi

Payment only by bank transfer - parking meters in Sochi do not accept cash.

Payment via SMS is only hourly andIf the phone number is issued to an individual, so the happy owners of working sims are you in the span. Payment of parking in Sochi via SMS is done by sending a message park * 101 * p000pp197 * 2 to number 3116, where 101 is the zone number, p000pp197 is the registration number, and 2 is the parking time in hours. The extension of the parking is done by sending the message park * x * 2 to the number 3116, where the two is the number of hours. Completion of parking is done with the message park * s on the same number.

To pay for parking with a card, you need to selectpoint “Parking payment”, enter the number of the parking zone (although by default there is always the number of the zone where the parking machine is installed). Then enter the registration number in the format P000PP197, specify the parking duration (a multiple of 15 minutes) and pay with a bank card or parking card (attach to the validator for 5 seconds).

Shtrafstoyanka in Sochi

The tow truck service in Sochi is slightly fasterthan the nuclear power plant response team. The roads are monitored by traffic police officers, video cameras, specially trained cars and even locals with a special warehouse of personality.

In short, if you left the car innot in the right place, even “walk to the store”, “for five minutes” or “didn’t see the sign” - in three minutes you will be politely wrapped in candy wrappers from a special parking lot and sent by parcel post to one of the Sochi penalty car. What is typical is that you have a chance to cancel the problem if you find yourself near the car even at the time of loading - Sochi traffic policemen are very loyal in this matter.

If it happened that the car was taken away,start looking for her. If it is rolling, then it is better to call the distributor and report the problem. It is possible that the GPS beacon is installed in the car, and then they will tell you which of the many penalties you need to drive. If the car is without GPS, then you have a new quest - to find a car. To begin with, look through the eyes of people in the form of the police and ask them to find out by the state number and brand - where the car was taken.

Well, or call the phone "United Serviceevacuation ”+ 7-862-266-06-36. You will have to buy a car for five thousand, which is in total with the time spent, it makes obvious a simple thing - no need to park in the wrong place.

The fines of Sochi and Krasnaya Polyana are shown on the map below. You will find the dispatchers phones in the description for the marker.

On the map

In general, the situation in Sochi is quite standard forcenter of any other million-plus city. Just one of the problems is that people often do not want to pay for parking, as long as there is an opportunity to get up somewhere for free.

Well, the second feature of motorists of any country - they will try to park as close as possible to their destination. Few people like to walk 15-20 minutes from the parking lot and back to it.
