Headline Places - Sochi Winter Olympics

Location: Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia

Sochi recently garnered international attention for being the host of XXII Winter Olympic Games as well as XI Paralympic Winter Games this year (2014), although infamous and revealing photos of hastily set up resorts and Olympic villages in their sad state were much more memorable. Early images tweeted by journalists revealed confounding toilet configurations and doubtful water quality, imparting a disastrous preparation by the city for the Winter Olympics running from 7 - 23 February 2014.

With the location being one of the host cities of 2018 FIFA World Cup and Russian F1 Grand Prix from 2014 to at least 2020, they would have to do better in improving their facilities to leave a positive image with every departing visitor.

Question: Where is Sochi in Russia?
