Krasnaya Polyana is one of Russia’s most exclusive ski resorts in the Adler district of Sochi.
Visitors to the region have lots of activities to choose from to keep themselves active: they can go skiing at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Resort (or heli-skiing for the more experienced), go snowboarding or explore the surrounding area on foot with a guided tour. There are ample chairlifts to give skiers easy access to the mountains and slopes to suit every level, from beginners to professional athletes.
Once the hunting ground in Tsarist Russia, these days Krasnaya Polyana is frequented by the most privileged circles in Russia who flock here for their holidays.
Eating and drinking at Krasnaya Polyana
Nothing whets the appetite like mountain air, and thankfully Krasnaya Polyana offers up plenty of dining opportunities. There are several cafes and shops centered round the chair lifts for a quick pick-me-up and charming local restaurants serving local Russian and Georgian fare like chanakhi.
Visitors staying at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sochi don’t have to travel far to find delicious cuisine: this upscale hotel in Sochi is known for its sizzling steaks, grilled fish and Russian delicacies.

The 2014 sporting events held in Sochi, Krasnaya Polyana benefited from the development of the Sochi Light Metro connecting Krasnaya Polyana with downtown Sochi and the airport, making it easy for visitors to reach the region.
Ideally located in the heart of Krasnaya Polyana, the Radisson Hotel, Rosa Khutor is a firm favourite with visitors to Sochi looking to hit the slopes and make use of the fantastic mountain ranges in the area. And to ensure guests focus on enjoying themselves, the hotel’s ski handling services takes all the stress and organisation out of their hands.
