Sochi Olympic Park and the Singing Fountain

For a long time I was going to visit the Olympic Park inSochi. I wanted to immediately after the Olympics, but everything did not develop. But better late than never. If you find yourself in those places, I recommend to go. And just in the afternoon you can walk around the territory and look at the strange buildings, and in the evening come to specially listen to the singing fountain. As I understand it, the locals go there, as they are in a regular city park. Who on the rollers / bike ride, someone with a child for a walk, who swim (in the warm season). It is convenient, probably, to live nearby, there is always where to air.

Olympic Park

Fair. Olympic Park made a good impression. Yes, you can talk about politics, the need for the Olympics, and so on, but I suggest not to go beyond the sights and now consider this object in this particular way. So, it looks unusual. Up to date That is, for the sights really rolls, at least one-time. Well, if you live in Sochi or Adler, then you can still come here to spend your leisure time (walks, rollers, bicycles, the beach), the territory allows. Especially, I think, there is a expanse of rollers, where you can get such a flat area in the vicinity. Cyclists still it is not so important. Well, the beach here is good, albeit traditionally rocky: few people, the promenade is long and well-kept, clean sea.

Look at the photos, you will understand everything yourself. The only thing that strained is the mesh fence. He is there everywhere, everything is fenced, you can only go in certain places. We did not immediately find a passage to the beach. I assume it is made for safety, but it is inconvenient and aesthetically terribly not beautiful. The more the fence looks temporary (and, indeed, it is not stationary), which gives the impression of some kind of work, construction.

Singing fountain

When I posted a photo of the fountain and the stadiumFisht in the background in the social network, then signed, which, they say, look at the alien beetle looks like. It turns out that I was not the first to note this angle (it is rather obvious), only usually the people’s fantasy does not end with the bug, but it goes further, you know where. In principle, yes, there are some similarities.

On the same day, I returned specifically toto look and photograph a singing (dancing) fountain. In principle, the scheme is quite standard - the music plays, and the water jerks in different directions to the beat of the rhythm. I saw the same fountain once in Barcelona. Beautiful, yes. But I have enough 10 minutes of spectacle, I do not understand how people stood there for an hour watching.

Everyone is waiting for the fountain to play.

Map and parking

The dot on my map is in the free spot.parking lot. I asked, this parking is always free and its area is quite large. On the map it may seem that there is a long way to go to the center of the Olympic Park, where the singing fountain, but in fact there is no more than 15 minutes. At the time of my visit there was definitely another free parking on the waterfront near the Bolshoy Sports Palace, but rather small. Also, during some events, they open access to other parking lots (they are normally closed), but I don’t know if they are paid or not. You can still get up in the parking lot of Sochi Park.

By car, getting is not a problem, there is everywherepointers, and any navigator normally leads. Even if you make a mistake and come around on the wrong side, it’s not a problem to get where you want, the road, one might say, goes around the Olympic Park.

The easiest way to get there is by public transport.train "Swallow". From Sochi it takes about 50 minutes to the stop “Olympic Park”. From Adler, you can either go by train (10 minutes to go) to the same stop, or by bus 124c and 125c.
