The Games in Sochi will be the most compact Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in history. At Olympic park for example, it will be possible to walk from one venue to another in just minutes. All of the Paralympic Games competitions will take place in the same venues as the Olympics. Therefore, the sports facilities for the Games in Sochi have been built with the needs of people with a disability taken into account.
11 sports venues are being built to hold the Games in Sochi. They will be situated in two clusters, mountain and coastal. The distance between the clusters is 48 km.
Getting from the mountain venues to the coastal venues takes no more than 30 minutes on the new railroad.
There will be an Olympic Village in each cluster. In the coastal cluster the travel time by road from the Olympic Village to the site where the competitions will be held takes no more than 5 minutes, and in the mountain cluster - no more than 15 minutes.
Olympic Park will be the central venue of the coastal cluster. It will unite all sports venues, the park area and the infrastructure facilities. For the first time in the history of the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, all ice arenas will be within walking distance of each other. Approximately 70,000 visitors can be in the park at the same time.
The mountain cluster will include the Laura Cross-country Ski & Biathlon Center, the Sliding Center Sanki, the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center, the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center and the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
