Gelendzhik - a small cozy town in Russia's Krasnodar region on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus with a population of about 65 thousand people. It is the center of the "Resort of Gelendzhik", which is often called The Big Gelendzhik, which also includes the towns of Arkhipo-Osipovka, Betta, Krynica, Praskoveevka, Dzhanhot, Divnomorskoe, and Kabardinka. Gelendzhik is located on the shores of Gelendzhik Bay of The Black Sea, which has a horseshoe shape. There is one of the longest waterfronts in the world in Gelendzhik. Its length is 14 km.

Krasnodar region is in the south of the country. The Black Sea in the summer cools coast with breezes. In winter, on the contrary, it is warming, giving the accumulated heat of hot days. High Caucasus Mountains detain cold air currents coming from the north. The mild climate, abundant sunshine, warm sea, evergreen vegetation and picturesque countryside, clean air and fragrant dressed virgin forest mountains - all this has a beneficial effect on the human body and soul.

Arkhipo-Osipovka (Arhipka) is a resort on the Black Sea shore, with a population of about 8000 people. It is located at a distance of 55 km from Gelendzhik, 15 km from the village Dzhubga, 120 km from Krasnodar and 180 km from the Olympic Sochi.

North Caucasus - a historical and cultural region of Russia. Includes northern slope of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range and the Caucasus, (except for the eastern part, related to Azerbaijan), the western part of the southern slope to the river Psou (which forms the state border of Russia). This is the most populous region of the Russian Federation.

Sochi held XXII Winter Olympic Games in 2014 and since that time, the city began to take even more visitors from all over the world.
