If you are on this post, then you already know that “Sochi” and “parking” in one sentence usually occur in negative the vein. That Sochi is a hell of a motorist and drive your car here may be convenient, but in the end everything will turn into permanent parking searches. But, first, it doesn’t always work that way, but secondly, it all depends on what to compare. We must understand that this the resort and the number of people in the summer season increases by several time. It would be strange to expect empty streets.

Parking features in Sochi
Parking problems are caused by mountainous terrain and a small the width of the streets that has developed here historically. And also the fact that in the summer half of Russia comes here, that is, by definition it’s not There may be no problems with the park. I sometimes created the impression that Sochi is simply not designed for that amount having a rest.
If you are planning to come to Sochi by car or rent it upon arrival (I recommend Economybookings), then you have 4 options development of events.
- Hotel. Not all hotels have their own parking, for example, just plain street is used. The smaller the hotel, the smaller probability of parking. Also, if the parking is small, it may not enough space. When you book a hotel (I recommend checking discounts via RoomGuru), always look in the list of services if there is a private parking and read reviews as it is in fact.
- Private sector. In private houses where they rent rooms, now too There are usually several parking spaces in your own backyard. Enough Do you place, question, find out on arrival. Also often cars are one after another, which complicates logistics and operational departure from the yard.
- Apartment in new building. In the new elite class may private house or underground parkings will be provided for, and if the landlord bought a place there, then you can take advantage of. But this is not always the case, because not cost-effective.
- Apartment in the old house. There is usually a pipe. Residents of old homes are forced to solve parking problems by illegal means, carried away by squatting, hanging chains and setting frogs. Everywhere in the courtyards practiced butt-parking, when one the car closes the other and the drivers call each other left under the windshield phone.
In short, park in the evening in the courtyards of residential areas It may be problematic for you, but this is normal in any the city and Sochi in this regard is not something outstanding. Elitka the whole is fenced off by fences from the outside world, and there you have no passage, but old quarters pop from old-timers personal equipment and you will have to go round looking for free or paid parking. I remember in the center of the city, I could not find a place on a paid evening.
Types of parking in Sochi
Sochi is a beautiful town with a complex road system, which underwent significant improvements during the preparations for the Olympics 2014 However, these changes affected mainly the outskirts. The central area of the city in terms of expansion of the roadway and the increase in the number of parking lots has not gained as much as we would like, but still people are not left to the mercy of fate. In addition to parking in residential sector that you will need in terms of night parking, for you there is a wide choice of parking in the center of Sochi.
The most popular streets, where the width of the road allows parking, were declared municipal parking. Naturally – paid. Everything this farm is marked on the ground by road signs and equipped with parking meters. Of the features of municipal parking: price – 50 rubles per hour, fine – 1000 rubles (hello from Sochi residents Muscovites, with their 2.5 thousand fine). Payment must be made for 15 minutes, otherwise a passing photofixing machine will send your number to database.
Payment for municipal parking is made in the parking meter with using a bank card (cash is not accepted), using SMS or through the application “Parking space of Sochi”. Bonus from the city Sochi – paid parking time from 8 am to 8 pm, that is, living nearby you can park for the night for free. All municipal parking lots are drawn on the official site map “Parking Sochi space “, you can see everything there in advance.
Private paid parking
In addition to collecting money in the city budget, weaning population engaged and private entrepreneurs. In the center of Sochi, on patches that do not allow to build a residential building here (land there is a gold one) organized paid ground parking. There is just fenced area, there are parking with awnings and sinks, there is small buildings of several floors, multi-storey car parks with elevators or even automatic platforms. They spread all over the territory of Sochi and the most useful ones I mapped at the end this post.
Features of private parking: price – from 100 rubles per hour, convenient location, protected area, in some places – more profitable parking for long term. The fact is that on some parking you will be allowed for 200 rubles to get up for 12 hours. On especially expensive land or in special parking complexes (in the construction of which a lot of money has been raised) can run into a high price tag and even some sort of price list with system of discounts or subscriptions. But such parking lots are often empty. because of its unhealthy pricing.
As you have read above, free parking in the center of Sochi – these are municipal parking lots before 8am and after 8pm. Large Free parking is available in new areas of Adler, in the Olympic Park, but so same came across in the center of Sochi – alas. Simply physically there is no such area, but no one bothers you to drive off from the center for a couple of blocks and leave the car in the private sector: during the day there is a place, because people are leaving for work.
Features of free parking: it is free and it takes a long time look for. If you don’t know the city, it turns into an exciting quest, so here’s a hint – Winter Theater. Parking on the square in front It is free of charge, but it is necessary to arrive there in the morning, no later than 8-9 hours. They left the car and calmly walk along the embankment or around the city. AT Otherwise you will have to leave the car somewhere on the outskirts. civilizations and walk a lot. What is good for health, but not forty-degree heat and not with children.
Parking at the airport of Sochi
Parking at the Station Square (racks №№ 1,2,3): free 15 minutes, then at 200 rubles per hour, full or incomplete, and 1000 rubles worth parking per day.
