MOSCOW, January 31, 12:38 /ITAR-TASS/. Sochi and its transport infrastructure are 100% ready to accept guests and participants of the Olympic Games, and it “looks fantastic”, presidential property manager Vladimir Kozhin said in an interview with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper on Friday.
“In general, we’re ready for accepting guests. Sochi and the transport infrastructure look fantastically. Those who arrive there, especially foreigners, note this fact,” Kozhin said, adding that those who had last visited the Krasnaya Polyana had been mostly amazed.
Commenting on hotels and resorts, particularly Dagomys, Rus, Sochi and Avangard, which are in the competence of the presidential property manager, Kozhin said: “All facilities are ready and are put into service.”
February 3, an ethnographic park “Moya Rossiya” (My Russia) with many “thematic pavilions” devoted to Russian regions will be opened in the Krasnaya Polyana. “Pavilions are capital facilities where mini-hotels, folk craft shops and regional cuisine restaurants will be located,” the presidential property manager said.
