City of Sochi banned swimming and visiting beaches after 8 pm


The city of Sochi decided to comply with the law, and banned night swimming in the sea.

Beaches’ owners were obliged to ensure that people swim only between 8 am and 8 pm. Even just being on the beach after 8 o’clock in the evening is forbidden.

“Most tragedies are usually related to the fact that guests are going to swim in the sea while intoxicated at night,” the press service of the Sochi City Hall explained.

From now on, private security companies assigned to every beach will also be obliged to monitor the beaches for tourists at night time.
