Fisht Olympic Stadium


The 2014 Winter Games will take place in the sea resort town of Sochi, Russia. Organizers built an Olympic Park near the coast with venues to host the indoor ice events and ceremonies. A second cluster of venues is located in the mountains a short ride away from the coast. The Fisht Olympic Stadium, which seats 40,000 people, will host the opening and closing ceremonies. Pictured here with the Caucasus Mountains in the background, the stadium was designed to complement the landscape. Take a tour of other key Olympic venues in Sochi in this slide show.
