A new airport is being built next to the old one in Adler.

Those buildings in the background are a press-centre of the Olympic Games and a hotel for journalists.

Probably the most attractive Olympic stadium – the Big Ice Palace. Its roof will represent a huge screen with moving images.

    Niiiice.

    All the money could have spent on schools (and put the Olym. permanently in Greece where they need the tourist dollars).

  3. guest says:

    Now imagine all the people that will arrive by car, that as they drive trough all the parts other than the olympic city, how much poverty and neglect they will see there and then this “modern wonder”.

    Goes to show that Russia will spend limitless amounts of money on status, but does not give a damn about its people.

      Tell me more about how my government does not give a damn about me.

      What’s going to happen is that all of the stuff that was built for the Olympics will still be there after the olympics, and the area will have a vastly improved infrastucture of highways and telecommunications. All of this will directly benefit the Russian people, especially the ones that live around Sochi.

    (r)evolutionist & guest. Dont you guys tire of just commenting about things that you know nothing about? Which country on earth does not have poverty? Are we then not supposed (world) to have competitions just because people are starving? Just think of what great benefit Russia will derive by hosting this olympics and stop worrying about its people and worry about poverty in your own countries.

    • (r)evolutionist says:

      Poverty has no borders. Education has no borders. Improving education by building better schools, hiring good teachers is anti-poverty. Tourists polluting and trampling ground does not alleviate poverty.

    Seno,

    when a nations spends 30 BILLION US dollars on a *sports event* while at the same time it has a steep pupulation decline as well as topping the list of european countries with the number of drug addicts… yes, that is cause for concern.

    There will be no benefit from this, just as there was never any benefit with any olympics game. In every country it happens it has a huge impact on budget, and never leaves after itself something remotely useful.
    Sure, sports are good, sports are fun and healthy. But you do not need to spend astronomical sums of money so that people can figure skate, run, and play with a ball!
