Return transfer to Sea Port

You will be met at the Sochi cruise port by your Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your transportation ready to commence the tour.

Departing the seaport, there will be a short drive to the Olympic University, where the transportation will stop and we will start a walking tour with your professional guide along the upper part of the seafront up to the very center of Sochi. On the way your guide will be pointing out the focal points such as the historical monument of the Cannon and the Anchor, Pushkin’s Library and the Theatre Square with the magnificent building of the Winter Theatre.

After the walking tour we will board the transportation and continue a brief drive through the city up into the lush green hills that overlook the pebble-strewn beaches of Sochi. Here, nestled amongst towering California pine trees, you will find the imposing two-story villa that was once Joseph Stalin's secret dacha.

The subdued grey-green color of its imposing facade was intentional, serving to camouflage it from prying eyes, unfriendly visitors or possible artillery attacks from the sea. Built in 1937, this stately residence with its shaded verandahs is now open to the public. The villa remains nearly as it was in Stalin's time, with most of its original fixtures still in place. There is even a life-sized wax image of Stalin to be found here, seated at his table before a silver ink-pot that was presented to him by Mao Zedong.

Leaving the dacha, the tour will continue to the renowned Matsesta Spa. This is one of Sochi's oldest and most popular sulfur-springs spas which is housed in a palatial building (external). The word Matsesta literally means "fire water" and was named so by the ancient Adygs. The waters here are said to contain over 27 minerals, including sulfur, iodine and bromine, and are considered to be therapeutic in the treatment of several medical conditions.

There will be free time to for photo opportunities before heading back to the cruise port in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure.
