In anticipation of the next Winter Olympics which will be held in Sochi, people talk a lot about the construction of Olympic facilities. But unfortunately, there are very few good photo reports on this topic. Here we offer you one of them. Pictures are taken in Krasnaya Polyana (literally: “Beautiful Glade”), a famous ski resort located in one of the districts of Sochi.
The way to Krasnaya Polyana lies through the gorge.
Here is a bus stop and many hotels under construction. One building is very similar to an old train station…
This is the only operating cableway. Everything around is under construction…
A there and back ticket costs 700 rubles (about $23). Let’s go up.
The view in the direction of Adler.
Each cable car seats 8 people.
1500 m above sea level.
The views from the car are much more interesting than those from the top…
Approaching the last stop…
At the top you are not allowed to go beyond the red fence.
At a height of 2.200 m there is a strong smell of car exhaust fumes.
This picture is taken from an observation deck. The cableway is right behind the photographer.
The observation deck.
The mountains here look just like hills, although their height is more than 2 km.
“Together to the new heights” – the slogan of a sponsor.
The view from the top.
Hopefully, all facilities will have been built by 2014 and the Olympic Games will go well.
Cutting through the rock!
But the main thing is still not to fall down!
