Adler railway station

Adler railway station (Russian: Станция Адлер) is a railway station in Adler, a district of Sochi, at Lenin street 113. It is located in the Krasnodar Krai of the North Caucasus Railway, a regional subsidiary of Russian Railways, and one of the largest rail passenger terminals in Russia.[citation needed]

Construction[edit]

Construction of the railway station began in November 2010 to replace the existing one, which is located to the west. It is a hall of 150 by 60 m, in two parts, one on the side of the sea, and one on the city side. There is a car park, and the roof features solar collectors, which are used for heating.[1]

The new station will have a capacity of 3000 to 5000 passengers per hour in normal operation and up to 20,000 passengers on the opening day of the 2014 Olympic Games. Construction was completed in 2013,[2] and the station was opened on 28 October 2013 in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Thomas Bach, the chair of the International Olympic Committee.
