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 recommends all visitors to be indoors in a protective mask and gloves, but if you do not have them, they will let you in anyway.
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.
Casino Sochi is the first casino in Russia’s newest dedicated gambling zone. Located in the Gorky Gorod mountain resort, the five-star complex only opened to the public on January 5, 2017 and features 70 gaming tables, 569 slot machines and a bustling poker room.
Away from the gambling facilities, Sochi Casino features two excellent restaurants guaranteed to tickle your taste buds, a bar, VIP rooms, a concert hall and theatre, plus it is part of the 428-room Sochi Marriott Krasnaya Polyana Hotel which itself has a brace of restaurants and bars, a spa, nightclub and fitness facilities.
Exact address: Estonskaya st., 12, Sochi, Krasnodar Kray.
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.
