The construction of the Olympic Park facilities was an essential part of the preparations for the Winter Olympics. The success of the games in general and the successful performance of our team in particular depended to a large extent on how comfortable, modern and beautiful these buildings will be. The work began at the end of 2007, at the beginning of 2014 the bulk of the construction was completed. It was necessary to solve not only the problem of holding competitions and accommodating athletes, coaches, journalists, but also the problem of transport and ensuring the life of a large number of people in the territory of the Olympic Park. Therefore, along with purely sports facilities, there are transport and other facilities.

The most grandiose of the Olympic facilities is, of course, the Fisht stadium, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympic Games. The second largest stadium is the Bolshoi Ice Palace, which hosted ice hockey competitions. Also on the territory of the park are the Iceberg ice palace, which hosted skaters and figure skaters, the Puck small ice arena, the Adler-Arena indoor skating center, now transformed into the Expocentre, a special ice cube curling arena, two training arenas, information center for journalists, hotel for IOC members.

Of particular interest is the Olympic Village, located directly on the Black Sea coast. It consists of 47 buildings and is designed for three thousand people. After the Olympics, it became an off-season sanatorium-resort complex "Juicy".

Interesting fact: in the middle of the Olympic Park there is a cemetery of the Old Believers. Fisht stadium is located on the territory of the former Old Believer village of Morlinsky. According to tradition, there was a cemetery near the village, which was not recorded on the plans for urban development. It was discovered already during construction. Naturally, it was decided to keep it, which is why it ended up in the center of the Olympic Park.

Address: Sochi, Adler region, Imeretinskaya lowland.
