The city was more or less unknown outside Russia until it was nominated as the host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics in July 2007.
The contested XXII Olympic Winter Games took place from 7 to 23 February 2014 around the city of Sochi at two main venues. Russia's President Vladimir Putin made the Sochi Games a showcase event and spent more than $50bn (£37.7bn) staging them. In 2016 an independent report found evidence of widespread state-sponsored doping in Russia in the lead up to the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.
The Olympic Park with the 'Fisht Olympic Stadium' and other facilities around the 'Medal Plaza' were constructed south east of Sochi's Adler city district. Snow events were held at Roza Khutor, a ski resort, about 60 km (37 mi) north east of Sochi with the Caucasus Mountains as a scenic backdrop.
