Sochi, Russia

Statement from the Cheltenham Twinning Association on our link with Sochi

The history of the twinning link with the Black Sea resort of Sochi in Russia dates back to the 1950s, when there was a strong drive towards forming twinning links with towns and cities in the former allied countries. The city of Sochi was chosen by the Soviet Embassy as a potential twin for Cheltenham, as both Cheltenham and Sochi are spa towns. The first official visit to Sochi took place in 1959.
