You can get tired without a car walking along the height differences, by car – you are tormented by driving along narrow serpentines.
Sochi is a mountainous city, and it’s not easy for a pedestrian or a motorist. Without a car, you get tired of walking along the heights, by car – you are tormented to travel along narrow serpentines. In the private sector, because of this feature, the residents of the houses of the neighbors are in plain sight: from the site above they can easily look into your bedroom a little bit, and you won’t be saved by any fence. And you yourself are forced to contemplate intimate scenes from the life of neighbors down the slope. Another point is the length of the city. Along the sea it is almost 150 km. Can you imagine driving from one end of the city to the other and suspecting in the middle of the way that you forgot to turn off the iron?
High humidity, typical for Sochi, leads to the rapid formation of mold in houses and apartments. And the downpours that provoke real floods can not only greatly spoil the mood, but also damage property. The same private sector and car owners are especially affected: wind-broken trees fall on cars, branches and debris clog storm drains, rivers overflow their banks in a few hours and wash everything away, and banks collapse.
The center of Sochi and its tourist places are far from the whole city. The realities of “ordinary” districts are constantly non-working traffic lights, the absence of exits and ramps for people with limited mobility, sidewalks disappearing in the middle of the way. It’s even scary to think about scooters and bicycles here: driving on sidewalks is inconvenient, and driving onto the road with local traffic is tantamount to suicide. Public transport, locals joke, can both take you to the sea and bring you to tears. This is especially true for minibuses. They run on a chaotic schedule, drivers often do not want to accept card payments, are rude to passengers, text or talk on the phone while driving.

5. Low level of service
Residents of Sochi do not hide the fact that they have little confidence in local specialists. Therefore, a huge number of people go to doctors and for other services in Krasnodar. And the contacts of good manicurists and hairdressers here are passed on from generation to generation. Even in popular salons, you can run into a bad specialist. But the worst situation is with repair teams and individual “masters of men's affairs” like car service, construction, and repairs. Few of them turn out to be a worthwhile specialist, and even the prices are aching.
It's not just about stray dogs, of which there are many in the city. In the warm season in Sochi, for example, American cockroaches can suddenly appear. They look like the usual “Russians”, only 5 times larger. They say that conditions are ideal here for them. /41lyl2z6sfswk8g40g40cgo0g.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
