Transport in Adler – buses, taxis
It looks like the beginning of the ascent of the funicular (below there is McDonald’s, so you should eat before the rise – at the top prices are more expensive)
In summer, the air temperature in Adler, on average, + 27 ° C, water + 25 ° C. The temperature in the buses, on sensations, is the sum of two these indicators. Any stop reminds rest in a bath, and in traffic jams thoughts arise that Adler’s name comes from the words “hell.” Large buses should be air-conditioned, but in fact it is not.
Our experience: we preferred to avoid steam rooms on wheels, but in two cases failed. We traveled from the Olympic Park (Adler) to Arboretum (Sochi) – 55-60 rubles per person; and moved on Adler himself – fixed 19 rubles.
The only pleasant exception to the public picture transport: train “Swallows”, following from Adler to Red Polyana – 235 rubles.
Taxi in Sochi is expensive. Even if you drive no more than 10 minutes, will have to pay around 300 rubles. Yandex taxi developed never mind. You can not always wait for the driver; no child fare.
Rent a car in Adler
Rent a car in Adler – a great way to ride along the coast Black Sea. But not in the city itself, because two main problems – traffic jams and wild interchanges will drive you crazy.
The average price of economy class from local distributors – 1200-1800 rubles / day (look at MyRentaCar). Child seats are charged separately (around 200 rubles / day). Some companies may request a deposit of 3000 rubles. At hotels car rental costs from 2500 rubles.
Having a car allows you to rent apartments in no touristic zone. It’s cheaper and the bonus will be amazing. panorama of the sea. Get to the view of low-cost housing in Adler without personal transport is almost unreal: impressive rises without preparation is difficult to overcome in the heat.
Entertainment and excursions in Adler
Against the background of the local Disneyland? Part of our company riding a roller coaster – they liked it
Those wishing to dilute the route hotel-sea-hotel offered tours. Most popular routes (prices for single):
- Krasnaya Polyana and the rise of Rose Peak (1590 rubles)
- Olympic Park and Singing Fountains (free)
- Abkhazia (from 1500 rubles)
In Adler there is an amusement park – Sochi Park (1850 rubles for adult, 1450 for a child from 5 to 12 years). Interesting not only lovers of roller coasters, but also people not extreme warehouse – carousel for kids, fountains, sculptures, animators, Dolphinarium.
Olympic Park is good to visit in the late afternoon, lingering on show of the Singing Fountains. It starts at 20:30 and it is an hour. In place rent bicycles, scooters – 150-200 rubles / hour.
An ice show is held every summer at Iceberg. In the season of 2017 and 2018 is the play “Romeo and Juliet”; ticket – from 1200 rubles.
At one of the resorts of Krasnaya Polyana is better to stay at several days. The cheapest option is Gorki Gorod. Local residents often use this life hacking: take a vacation in the summer period and leave the city, which was blocked by burnt down tourists, the mountains. In June and up to October, 5-star hotels with The pool / spa make unprecedented generous offers. For example, 5 * Sochi Mariott Krasnaya Polyana takes off half the winter price at 12 000 rubles per night for two!
Excursion to Abkhazia from Adler
From Adler we went on an excursion to Abkhazia (in the photo is a cool view of the lake Ritsa)
Despite its neighborhood with Greater Sochi, Abkhazia maintains its indescribable atmosphere. From Adler – the closest city to the border – daily bus tours are organized.
Our experience: we took a day excursion outside. Do not be afraid to bargain! So, we knocked out a price tag of 1500 rubles per person (and paid aside from the rest of the tourists who agreed to 2000-2500). Visited Gagra, Pitsunda, Lake Ritsa, Yupsharsky canyon and, of course, bee-, wine-, cheese farms (he is still a divorce, but delicious).
You can also organize an individual tour, the cheapest will be released on Thripster (1750 rubles per person when traveling four together):
Those who are accustomed to build their own routes, you can use public transport: to stop the farm Russia go buses and minibuses. Continue on foot across the border (allowed on a Russian passport). And again a minibus or taxi.
It is very convenient to travel around Abkhazia on your own transport. The only “but” communication with the traffic police service. Car with Russian numbers will stop in almost 100% of cases.
Beaches and the sea
Black Sea and our “favorite” pebbles
Adler’s beaches are not very diverse: more or less. smaller pebbles. Straw bedding is definitely needed, just towel will not help. Closer to the center – more people, entertainment, may be noisy. As you move – quieter.
The cleanest sea – the most transparent! – in Nizhneimeretinsky bay. This area began to develop only for the Olympics, and therefore not yet managed to turn into … what is usually associated with domestic vacation at sea. We liked the beaches of South Star and Velvet Seasons: yes, nearby, but free two meters of pebbles can be there It was found at any time.
Some hotels provide umbrellas with sun beds for their guests. is free. For the remaining 200 rubles for a lounger and 100 rubles for an umbrella for the day. You can rent a tent with pillows (about 1000 rubles).

Rest with children in Adler – reviews
In Adler, a huge number of vacationers with children. Main The criteria why parents choose holidays in Russia are:
- familiar food
- clear pattern of behavior in diseases
Older children are easier to find friends and independently take leisure: All entertainment-animators are Russian-speaking.
With a small child you need to take shelter as close as possible to the water – and this, as a rule, hotels. Long walks in the 30-degree heat will tire kids. It is important to pay attention to the availability of air conditioning, especially if the day the child will sleep in the room.
Seasons and countries: Where to go on vacation with children? >>
The main disadvantage of holidays on the beach with children in Krasnodar region – intestinal infection. The peak of the annual epidemic in July. Hospitals are full, general level medical care in Sochi is low. Paid clinics are expensive: Reception at the pediatrician around 600 rubles.
Precautionary measures: not to take sea in a mouth water, wash your hands, do not eat in doubtful places. And best of all – plan a vacation with children in Adler on the Black Sea in June or September / October.
Where better to stay in Adler?
Nizhneimeretinsky bay: every morning we went to the sea by this lake
In our opinion, the State Farm Russia, Nizhneimeretinskaya Bay – best places to stay. Conveniently located to the Olympic objects, Sochi Park and Abkhazia, excellent sea and beaches. The only thing that is a bit stressful with the infrastructure (from us to the shop is 20 minutes walk). But this does not outweigh, especially since the cafes and restaurants enough.
Most of the tourists visiting Adler favor stay in hotels. Or in modern, built to 2014, or in homes that have earned a positive reputation recreation.
By the way, the rest in Adler in 2018 at the beginning of the summer superimposed on Soccer World Cup. And would you know how the private sector cheat prices, especially for those who rented accommodation without intermediaries. Later, the hype was asleep, and housing prices near the sea returned to the previous level.
In Adler, rest without intermediaries at sea can be good, as in a small guest house 40 minutes from the beach and in a hotel on shore. It all depends on the interests of tourists, the availability of cars, mobility and a positive attitude on vacation! We have seen personally, although we traveled to our coast with a large share skepticism.
