06What about COVID-19?

By the decree of the Governor of the Krasnodar Territory, Veniamin Kondratyev, from August 1, here is what you will need to take with you and show at the reception of a hotel/sanatorium/boarding house in the Krasnodar Krai:

  • A medical document or certificate of a disease transferred from the personal account of the Public Services portal in electronic or paper form – for tourists who have been cured no more than 6 months before settling in;
  • A certificate of vaccination or certificate of completion of the first stage of vaccination;
  • In case of contraindications to vaccination, it is necessary to have a certificate of medical withdrawal and a negative PCR test result obtained no earlier than three days before settling in.
  • A negative result of the PCR test (obtained no earlier than three days before check – in) and a MANDATORY voluntary consent to be vaccinated within three days from the date of check-in. Contact the vaccination center but* it is necessary to do it yourself*
  • Minors from 15 to 18 years old have a negative result of a PCR test received no earlier than three days before check-in, or a medical document, a certificate of a previous illness from the portal’s personal account of the Public Services portal-for tourists who have not recovered more than 6 months before check-in.

Casino Sochi promises to comply with all the precautions prescribed by Rospotrebnadzor. Sensitive thermal imagers are installed at the entrances, all chips and playing cards are regularly wiped with disinfectants (sanitizers are also installed in casino toilets, in restaurants and near ticket offices).

Employees of the gambling zone undergo a medical examination every day, and only those who do not have any symptoms of any disease are released to replace them. In addition, the casino halls are heavily air-conditioned and additional wet cleaning is carried out.

Casino Sochi requires all visitors to be indoors in a protective mask and gloves. If you don’t have them, they will be given at the entrance

And what about self-isolation for two weeks in the Krasnodar Krai?

There is no mandatory quarantine for those arriving in the region; there is no need to notify the local authorities about your arrival and the purpose of the visit. At the entrance to the region, you will not be asked for any certificates, but a certificate stating that you have no contact with people with coronavirus, as well as that you are not sick with it, will only be required if you are going to live in a sanatorium.

Please note that upon arrival at the airport / train station, your body temperature is measured – if it is elevated, then you will be tested for COVID-19 and sent to the observatory until the test results are received.

Just in case, before departure, check the information with Rospotrebnadzor at the toll-free number + 7-800-555-49-43.

08How to get there

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.

Find out the cost of flights for WPTDeepStacks dates from your city using the search form below. Please note: after clicking the “Find Tickets” button, you will be redirected to the ticket aggregator website, where you can purchase a ticket.


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.
