A bit of Sochi history

Opened in 1920, Sochi’s Town History Museum is one of the better exhibitions in the city, thanks to its recent renovations. Its extensive collection of artifacts, art, photos and weird objects is pretty impressive too, housed in no less than 14 exhibition halls and numbering some 150,000 items.

We say weird objects, because what other town history museum has as its centerpiece the magnificent Soyuz 9 Capsule which carried cosmonauts Nikoliev and Sevastyanov into orbit for 18 days in June 1970, before splashing down near Sochi? Seeing this iconic piece of history is worth coming for alone.
