Escape the Noise
To escape the noise for a while, head to the surrounding countryside of the Agura Valley, with its amazing waterfalls, or relax in magnolia filled spaces, such as the Riviera Park. In between the Formula One circuits, take some time to explore Sochi itself, and visit its large Discovery World Aquarium.
For the best accommodation deals book online in advance, or choose hotels in Adler, which are generally more suited to budget travelers.
The town is a little spread out and can be hilly, but getting from your accommodation to the Grand Prix circuit is easy by bus, or the mini-bus Marshrutka service, both of which run frequently and cheaply around the town, and out to the airport at Adler.

The Russian Formula One, or F1, Grand Prix takes place in Sochi from September 23rd to September 26th, 2021. This Formula One circuit is one of the longest in the F1 calendar, with the 5.9 km street course, looping around the Winter Olympic Park. Only the tracks of Spa Francorchamps and Silverstone are longer.
The F1 Grand Prix has been held occasionally in Russia since its 1910 staging in St. Petersburg, and Sochi is planned as Russia’s Formula One venue for the next few years.
After its inaugural year in 2014, Sochi was named by professional drivers as one of the best F1 racing tracks.
Hotels are located either in Soviet style buildings with fairly minimalist architecture, or in attractive old guest houses, which are often family-run. Sochi is also popular with youngsters using cheap hostels and B&B accommodation.
Hostels offer good deals on single and dormitory rooms, and many have terraces or BBQs for guests to use. Some have heating, so will be a perfect choice for October.
When planning your visit to Sochi for the Formula One Grand Prix, don’t forget to pack your phrase book, as many hotel staff won’t speak English, and remember to organize your visas to enter Russia.
