Holidays in Krasnaya Polyana in the winter - what to see and do

Traditionally for this kind of articles I recall: This is not a detailed guide to action, with a schedule of work and prices. This information is better known to the direct organizers of entertainment and that is typical - all this info is changing from year to year and from season to season. The main ambassadors of this article are to give you an idea of ​​what else can be done in Krasnaya Polyana and the surrounding resorts in the winter. There is something to do here, that's for sure.

However, no one bothers to go to Sochi or Adler, warm up (there will be no snow) and see more famous sights - My TOP15 dostov in Sochi.

Estosadok and Gorky Gorod

Winter fun Slides Cities - this is the firstturn up the slope using the cable car and downhill skiing or snowboarding. Therefore, we will not focus on the main winter activations, but turn to those that athletes usually recall secondarily. Well, or not the athletes themselves, but those who made their company on this trip.

Unlike summer holidays, in winter you don’t haveThere will be so many opportunities for hiking in the mountains and picnics in nature do not look so attractive. However, in Gorky Gorod there are enough options for winter holidays, so as not to get bored during the holidays.

Husky Center?

Husky Center - a kennel, which is screwedsome more entertainment options for tourists. In addition to the dogs themselves, they have prepared introductory and informative excursions for you, dog sledding and contact with huskies. To hang out with them, to stroke, to see how they bite or run after dog lovers during feeding. The smell is specific, but the atmosphere is quite positive. Located at an altitude of 960 meters in the Upper Town.


At an altitude of 960 meters, in the Upper Town resortGorky The city is all-season entertainment, which is especially important in the winter, and let's speak directly - only in winter the descent from the hill for our man looks like a natural pleasure.

In contrast to summer tubing, the descent on the cheesecakes here occurs on dense snow, and not on fleecy plastic. And this is a completely different speed and emotions.

Waterpark Mountain Beach

Gorki Gorod is the only resort town whereYou will find a shopping and entertainment center that is full even by the capital standards. Everything would be prosaic if, in addition to boutiques and food courts, there was not a whole range of all-season entertainment inside the Gorky Gorod Mall, the largest of which is an aquapark with a real sandy beach. Here you can enjoy beach games, swimming pools and jacuzzis, Finnish saunas and massages, animators and entertainers.


Feel free to call it snowshoeing. Now this strange word is gradually coming into use at the resort, combining the purely Russian “snowshoes” and the ingga ending from English, meaning action. Snowshoeing is probably the only option after skiing for hiking on the snow-covered mountain slopes. Entertainment is not easy, but it allows you to move in any direction without falling into the snow to the waist.

Ice Rink Free Ice

An open ice rink is built to the left of the mainGorki Gorod lift, at an altitude of 540 meters (that is, in the valley near the river). The main purpose of the rink is mass skating in a circle. For this, a rental point was arranged here, skaters and figure skaters were hired on the staff, and equipment was equipped for changing clothes. With your skates you can come easily and for free, which is much nicer and more beneficial for healthy feet.

Esto-Sadok bridge

Local semi-landmark in respectwhich local newlyweds have a belief (from fresh ones) that after passing over the bridge and leaving a castle with their names on it, they receive bonuses for a long and happy family life. The key to the lock, as it should be, is thrown into the river.

Tammsaare Museum

Small private house on Estonian streetremade in Anton Tammsaare Museum. Tammsaare is the most widely read Estonian writer of his time, who was treated for two years in Sochi. Inside there are expositions telling about the founders of the village, their life and history. Crockery, utensils, examples of home wear, musical instruments and other authentic hand-made. Works on weekends.

Pyramid in Esto Sadke

The wooden structure, the construction of which is notnails were used, which in the conditions of modern development of materials for fastening has long ceased to be a sensation, to be honest. A thousand years ago - yes, it was nonsense, the genius of construction. And now - plastic screeds, glue, drills and milling machines - boring.

The pyramid seems to be exactly like the tombCheops, at 1:29. It was built according to the project of Professor Proskuryakov, although I googled what kind of professor it was and did not find the information where and in what area this person received a scientific title.

Rosa Khutor

The main resort of Estosadka, where in addition to the mountain slopes and funiculars, there is also a whole valley with built-up shores of Mzymta, where you will find all-season entertainment for yourself and your family.

Only walks in the Rose Valley will be different.long because of cold and snow, but a whole set of coffee shops and cafes of different levels are always at hand. And about the Olympic Village you should not forget - quite a full-fledged resort town with a mass of active and passive attractions.

Obstacle Park The Stash?

Once closed and unknown to the masses park in the foreston the mountainside, where many obstacles were made from natural materials - stones and logs. Well, iron, of course. Moreover, with the construction of this place, no major changes were made to the landscape, and all the details of the park were organically integrated into the surrounding nature. Cable car "Daphne" to help you.

Evening skiing

Night skiing is like day skiing,only in the evening and on lighted trails. As you understand, the lighting of the tracks is a costly and rather difficult in the conditions of the mountains, but every year there are more such tracks, which is good news.

In particular, Rosa Khutor offers eveningskiing on the tracks: Chalet, Juventa, Rosa Blade and Rosa Star. All four runs of varying difficulty, from green to red. What is interesting about skating in the evening, what attracts athletes in it? Few people and a flat slope - this is at least.

Evening sledging

More light, adult and kids entertainment onthe illuminated highway B-52, although children under 10 years old are not allowed in here. Tickets for the sled sell on the Rose Plateau at the box office of the Den. If you at the word “sledge” imagine something aluminum, with a pop-up back and on a string, then throw it out of your head. The sledge will be large, wooden, with round noses - as in the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. For the descent you will also be given a helmet.

Coop Studio - an egg in the mountains

Art Studio and a cozy coffee shop, built fromenvironmentally friendly materials. The building is made in the form of eggs, in which master classes in painting are held.

Endemic Mountain Brewery

A small landmark visitwhich is better to plan, without being behind the wheel, otherwise the whole point will be lost. Local brewery in the mountains, where craft beer is made using local ingredients. It is interesting to watch, but to try it is more interesting to triple.

Aviary complex of the Caucasus Reserve

All-season proper family entertainment.recreation. This is not exactly a zoo, but rather a rehabilitation zone for animals found on the territory of the reserve. Therefore, the strange (at first) choice of pets is easily explained by the fact that they got here not for the amusement of tourists, but in a random way and under not the most fun circumstances. However, you can see almost all representatives of the local fauna here.

Flacon 1170

Fashionable institution, the main purpose of whichis to hold events like festivals, parties, symposia and other mass gatherings of people united by common interests. Proudly call themselves art space, but overall it's a really good place to eat, listen to good music and chat with interesting people.


Massive entertainment in resortsKrasnaya Polyana. The tubing in the Mountain Olympic Village starts from the Olympic rings, next to the start of the stairs to the cable cars. The place, by the way, is all-season - in the summer, the descent is organized along a special chute, and in winter it is more fun - along the mountainside with trampled snow. And ends near the restaurant Pear.

Indoor ice rink

Alternative to summer tracking, but rangewalks are significantly reduced due to the nature of the equipment, snowshoeing is hard enough and they do not completely save you from falling into the snow, so you will have a pleasant exercise and ukhozhenye drifts around natural attractions.
