Sochi has always been associated in Russia's national mentality with the south, palms and a hot climate, that's why it was quite a bit of a surprise for many that the city won the 2014 Winter Olympic bid in 2007.

The Olympic and Paralympic Games were held in Sochi and the nearby ski resort "Roza Khutor" in Krasnaya Polyana. In 2014 Sochi was hosting the first Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix in Olympic park area. Formula 1 in Russia continues nowadays in Sochi Autodrom.

The city of Sochi has become known worldwide and continues to attract many different national and international mega-events.
