The central embankment of the city of Sochi is a pedestrian Primorskaya street, which starts near Maritime Station and ends under the Winter Theater. Although it can be considered the other way around, if you descended to the sea near the Winter Palace and began your walk from that edge of the embankment. It is possible that this option is even preferable, because you can hardly not just park around the Sea Port, but even drive easily, but there is a large free parking opposite the theater. The embankment stretches a little more than one kilometer and is a different width of the street, paved with tiles, which is concentrated on the mass of souvenir shops and is edalen. In general, this is a classic resort place for walking, shopping and light entertainment during the holidays.

Central Quay of Sochi
Part of the institutions on the Central Quay of Sochilocated under a cliff (there is a very sharp drop in height), the other is located between the parapet and the sea, where the width of the shore allows. The entire walking part of the embankment is designed specifically for pedestrians, and cyclists and scooters ride here is very uncomfortable, although sometimes such desperate people came across my eyes. And this is at the beginning of the season, and with the onset of the summer period and the influx of guests along the embankment it will be difficult to move even on foot, and not to ride a bicycle. Really - a very popular place, no matter how cool - near the sea, and people go to the first place to the sea.
In the course of the movement along the embankment I didphoto notes, just so that you have an idea about the infrastructure of the street and price lists of local institutions. There are beer houses and cafes with restaurants, there are shops with clothes and beach stalls, a fish spa, a children's amusement park, local fast foods and even a grocery store.
I will not argue that the Central Embankment in Sochi promises you the best promenade along the sea. Personally, I liked more Historic Boulevardwhich is laid on the upper tier of the embankment - there is a beautiful view from there, there are no shops and cafes, and far fewer tourists are walking.
Information to visit
Entrance to the pedestrian street is free, free and non-stop.
It is not recommended to come by bike -trite there will be no space for pokatushki, a lot of people. The photos were taken before the start of the season (April), and in the summer there are many times more people here, sometimes not crowding at all.
Best parking nearby - the area in front of the WinterTheater or drive on the road after the theater, another 300 meters to the paid parking after turning. You can cheat and park in one of the inner streets (parking markers are on the map below), but you will have to walk 10 minutes to the embankment after that.
