If you want to see the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, it will require some planning and effort. Sochi 2014 looks like it will be an experience well worth the time and planning through, but there are some things you need to know so your trip goes smoothly and as planned. You will need to arrange for a passport and a visa, because you will be traveling to another country, and you may need to visit your physician to get any clearances or needed immunizations. Travel arrangements for Sochi 2014 will also be required, both to Sochi from your home country and back, and then transportation during your stay.
Lodging while you are visiting the Olympics in Sochi 2014 should be arranged and reserved very early on, because available rentals will fill up quickly. Right now many of the projects being constructed are not finished yet, but by early 2012 some of the hotels in Sochi will be taking reservations for the Olympics. Olympic Village is also still in the planning and construction stage as well, so even athletes do not know for certain about their lodging and accommodations yet. This does not mean that you cannot start planning for the Olympics in Sochi in 2014, just that you will not be able to finalize every detail right now, and will need to finish your vacation preparations later on.
The Zhemchuzhina Hotel in Sochi is a great choice, with numerous excellent reviews by satisfied guests. In the warmer months you may be surprised by the weather in this part of Russia, but during the Sochi 2014 Olympic games there will be snow and colder temperatures. Make sure you pack plenty of warm clothing, and there are Sochi resorts nearby which vary in the level of luxury and amenities offered. If you want to attend Sochi 2014 and enjoy an Olympic vacation, advance planning is important. You should be able to start arranging for most of your trip by the middle of 2012, and some hotels in the area may be willing to take reservations now.
