Hi Vitaliy,

Greetings from Berlin! Best of luck with your city's bid to gain the Winter Olympics for 2014. One can never start too soon with the promotion, I think. :)

What is the Black Sea like in the summer? Is it warm there?

Greetings, Kevin.
Thanks for wishes, we'll hope on successful result of Olympic race. Sochi is considered the summer capital of Russia. The average temperature of air in June-October is 25-30 degrees. Sea water during this period of 22-25 degrees. Even now the temp. of sea water keeps at a level of 18 degrees so many tourists still bathe, and in Krasnaya Polyana (Red Glade) has dropped out a few snow and some people already ski.

If it is interesting, I placed the topic about our city below :) :

Sochi is the best resort of Russia widely known in our country and outside. Sochi possesses the unique combination of nature resources and rather developed resort infrastructure, therefore it can satisfy various tourists' demands. Mild subtropical climate, combination of icy mountains and warm sea allow to rest in Sochi perfectly well in any season, though summer is certainly the best tourist season, when you can swim in the warm Black Sea and sunbathe in the gentle sun – the summer season lasts from May till October.
Sochi is situated in the Western part of the Greater Caucasus, the great part of the territory is occupied by mountains and foothills. Sochi is the longest city in Europe, it stretches along the Black Sea coast for 149 km. Sochi comprises four districts: Adlersky, Khostinsky, Central and Lazarevsky. About 450 thousand inhabitants of more than 100 nationalities live in Sochi. Sochi belongs to Moscow time zone.
The climate in Sochi is the unique one: this is the most northern subtropics in the world in the vicinity of eternal ice. Sochi in summer is the beautiful sea resort; in winter you can enjoy the charm of holiday in mountains. The average air temperature at the seaside in April-November is about +18 degrees; the hottest months are July and August. The swimming season lasts through the end of October, sometimes till the mid of November, the warmest sea is in July and August, when seawater is up to +26 degrees.
There is unusual exotic nature due to the unique climate in Sochi. The subtropical vegetation is luxuriant: magnolias, eucalyptuses, palm trees, oleanders, rhododendrons, azaleas, yuccas and other plants, which you can’t see in the streets of other Russian cities. Sochi is the only area in Russia where there are the northernmost tea plantations in the world; where the citrus plants, such as tangerines, lemons and feihoa ripen; where boxwood and other exotic plants grow. Sochi is one of the rare sites on the globe where sea vacation matches with the rest in mountains; where the Matsesta curative waters are at your disposals. The yew-and boxwood grove in Khosta is a unique remnant of wild pre ice-age flora. It is the part of the State National Park.
Nowadays Sochi is the modern resort. Over 250 accommodation facilities – sanatoriums, boarding houses, hotels, tourist camps – provide lodging for thousands of guests. Sochi has got developed resort infrastructure, here is wide range of activities available: fascinating excursions, concert halls, theatres, museums, botanical gardens and aqua parks, casinos, numerous cafes and restaurants with variety of cuisines, situated everywhere, most in open air – in the parks and on the embankment.

Cheers, Vitaliy
