Notes to the editor
The Russia.Sochi.Park project in London’s prestigious Kensington Gardens – home to the Russian Delegation in London - comprises Russia.Park and Sochi.Park - two sites that will operate between July 26 and August 12. They will be located in direct proximity to each other, just 700 meters apart, giving guests the opportunity to move between the sites without wasting any time.

Russia.Park is a summer festival-style fun park, spread over a 10,000m2 area in Perks Field. Here it will be possible to introduce yourself to Russian culture, cuisine and sports history, see well-known Russian Olympians with your own eyes and hear the performances of teams from various corners of Russia.

Sochi.Park is the official site of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee at the Olympic Games in London 2012, and is designed to promote and make the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Games popular, as well as the city of Sochi, the Krasnodar Region and the Russian Federation as hosts for the staging of the Games. Thanks to innovative technologies, the visitors of the site will have the opportunity to travel through all of Russia to Sochi, the host city of the next Olympic Games, and an interactive 4D lift will "lift" guests to the snowy mountain tops. Theatrical performances on ice will be the center of the Sochi.Park cultural program. A total of 6 Olympic Champions and 18 World Champions in figure skating will perform on the ice rink.
