EPT Open Sochi will be held in the best casino in the post-Soviet space – Sochi Casino. It offers a five-star complex, which includes several rooms for playing poker, hundreds of slot machines and dozens of tables for card games and roulette.
In addition to gambling, guests of the Casino Sochi are waiting for Brunello’s signature cuisine restaurant, the Royal bar, a banquet hall, Velvet cabaret theater and a conference hall.
First and obvious variant – by plane.
Sochi International Airport is among the ten largest airports in Russia. Regular flights from Moscow arrive in daily; with a flight time of approximately two hours. Most major cities in Russia also serve Sochi. Transfers from the Airport to Casino will take about 30 minutes.
Flight to Russia and Moscow are available from almost all major international airports.
If you travel by train, your terminal – Adler railway station. Then you need to take the “Lastochka” train.
The comfortable “Lastochka” train departs from Sochi and Adler train stations, and also the Sochi Airport, and terminates at either the Esto-Sadok station. Please note that the train’s schedule varies depending on the season.
The Casino is two kilometers away from train stations and can be reached by taxi or bus #105, #105с and #135.
If you travel to Sochi Casino by personal car (or you rent a car) you need to go to A-149 “Old Krasnopolyanskoe highway” or “New Krasnopolyanskoe highway” and move 42 kilometers to the resort “Gorky Gorod”, then turn left onto Kashbaza street and go straight.
The old road is more winding and goes past the airport and through the villages of Krasnaya Polyana and esto-Sadok. That new road is Expressway, built for the Winter Olympics 2014 and it will take you to the resort faster. But be careful, the drivers often overtake on the opposite line and not respect the speed limit, although work in the area of the camera.
In winter during the snowfall, the traffic can be complicated, despite the fact that the roads clear quickly. In snow availability for winter tires — a must, without it your car will not pass the DPS. It can be spikes or Velcro.
The closest to the casino, and the most comfortable accommodation option. So close that you do not even have to leave the building to get into the casino.
