Any day of the sports weekend athletes and their families can walk to the new amusement park.

The swimming stage is held in the Imeretinsky port bay. The water area of the yacht port is well protected from storms, which ensures the athletes start in the most favourable conditions in comparison to the open water stage. The bay water temperature is 2 degrees higher than that of the Black sea open area. The temperature in the bay varies from 17 to 25 C from June to October months.
