Riviera Park is one of Sochi’s major tourist attractions, originally designed for the pleasure of Russia’s Tsars, who used to enjoy taking extended holidays on the Black Sea coast around Sochi. Riviera Park is just one of several beautiful parks in the city, but this is by far and away one of the oldest, having been designed in 1898.

Both tourists and locals alike flock to Riviera Park during the summertime, looking for an escape from the city where they can find somewhere quiet to enjoy the natural surroundings. One of Riviera Park’s most appealing features is the “glade of friendship”, which was planted by a Sochi-born cosmonaut. There is also a small botanical garden adjacent to the park, home to dozens of exotic trees and shrubs from around the world.
