World Cup Fever: Sochi. Hitting the jackpot in Russia’s Olympic gold town

Diego, Mukha, and Vitaly arrive in Sochi and realise no one’s booked a hotel. This proves to be no problem. Soon they’re settled in some cosy rooms rented from a granny they meet on the street. After a thrilling jeep tour of the stunning mountains outside town, they end the day at one of Sochi’s casinos, where Diego hits the jackpot. The next morning, Vitaly and Diego discover Mukha, and the money are missing, but their friend soon arrives in a flashy car, and they all zoom off to check out the Fischt Olympic Stadium. Used for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Games, the venue has now been completely remodelled for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The football fanatics end their trip to Sochi by bungee jumping off a 207-metre high bridge and even squeeze in some time in at one of the resort’s renowned beaches.
