Dagomys railway station in 2013

Dagomys railway station (Russian: Станция Дагомыс) is a railway station of the North Caucasus Railway, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, located in Dagomys Microdistrict, Lazarevsky City District of Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia.

History[edit]

The station was opened in 1929.[1] In Soviet times, the station served as a stopping point for some long-distance passenger trains. Later on, only local electric commuter trains called at the station. Because the long-distance trains did not stop here anymore, Dagomys suffered from the reduction of the number of tourists.[citation needed]

As of 2014, all local trains connecting Sochi and Tuapse via Lazarevskaya called at Dagomys, while long-distance trains did not stop. In 2013, construction of a new station building and modern terminals began for the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics.
