Sochi 2014 Legacy, Olympic Venues
All of the 12 sports venues built for the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 remain in use serving multiple functions that include sport, culture, education, tourism and entertainment.

The venues are grouped in two clusters: the Coastal Cluster located in the Imeretinskaya Valley on the Black Sea coast, and the Mountain Cluster situated near the village of Krasnaya Polyana.

In both clusters, Olympic venues continue to benefit the region. For example, the Fisht Stadium, host to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Sochi Games, serves as a training centre for the Russian national football team and has hosted FIFA tournaments, notably the Confederations Cup in 2017 and World Cup matches in 2018. In 2015, the Shayba Arena, that hosted ice hockey competitions during the Games, transformed into the Sirius Academy, an education centre that offers talented children from Russia, opportunities to develop in the fields of sport, science and arts. The Rosa Khutor Alpine Resort, Russia’s largest ski domain, hosted the FIS Junior World Ski Championship in 2016 and in the same year, it received almost 2 million visitors, nearly 600,000 more than in the previous year. Since 2015, the RusSki Gorki Jumping Centre has served as a ski jumping and Nordic combined training and competition venue. In 2019, it hosed 46 training camps, its highest volume up to date.

Post-Games, the Olympic Park attracted a new investment project in the form of the Sochi Autodrom, an automobile racing track. Since 2014, the F1 Russian Grand Prix and the Russian Grand Prix series have been staged the annually.
