Sochi Railway Staion, Russia.
The Sochi Railway Station is a familiar Sochi sight. Millions of people arrive in Sochi at this station. It is the primary place of arrival and departure for most travelers to and from Sochi. If you have never been to a Russian train station, this is a good example of the architecture and busy atmosphere. Trains come from all over Russia. Many travelers have journeyed from points in Siberia and northern Russia and have been on the train for days. Sochi's train station dates from the 1950s and embodies Stalinist-era architecture. Despite associations with other Stalinist architecture, the Sochi train station is pleasing to the eye and its lightness of design suits its location in this resort city. Sochi can be reached by train from Moscow (about 30 hours) and many other Russian cities.
