Nestled against the forested foothills of the Caucasian Mountains, Sochi contends strongly for the title of "The Gem of the Russian Riviera". Bolstering its claim are hot curative mineral springs. The city is favored by a climate similar to that of Nice and Monte Carlo. Sochi's real popularity dates from the 1950s, when most of its modern grand spa hotels and sanatoria were opened. Today there are nearly 60, and about 2 million people visit Sochi each year to enjoy the sparkling blue waters of the Black Sea. Due to the area's fine subtropical climate, an unusual variety of trees and shrubs can be found here. In addition to the beautiful mimosas, oleanders, magnolias, and palms that grow along Sochi's streets, an even greater variety can be viewed in the local botanical garden comprising over 1,500 species of exotic plants collected across the globe.
