Winter Theatre is righteously considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Sochi. Its architectural style belongs to Neoclassicism, with its massive columns and ornate cornices.

The architecture of this landmark is not the only reason why people from all over the world travel to Winter Theatre on a daily basis – we are ready to tell you about the rest of them right now.
The building was constructed in 1937 by the project of architect K. Chernopyatov. The 88 columns surrounding the theatre create the unique Corinth-style composition, so rare for the country. The three female figures, symbolizing the goddesses of Art, Architecture, and Sculpture, were authored by V. Mukhina. Take a personal tour to Winter Theatre, and you’ll see that its hall can accept more than 900 guests, and it’s always filled to capacity. From the date of its construction, this charming building has always been very popular with both Sochi residents and the guests of the resort.
