The Olympic Park in Sochi, a year later

Who is going to protect Sochi from Medvedev. Alexander shafts went through the Olympic facilities a year after the opening of the Olympic Games and posted excellent reports. The main message - the objects are empty and falling apart, and in some places even turn into a cesspool. Media and blogs have picked up the theme, everything began to groan and to be indignant. How so? The legacy of the great Olympic Games in the trash turns. Let's face it.

To begin with, there is nothing for the year have not changed. How to open the Olympics with subquality, so every now and worth. All Olympic venues are just poorly designed, poorly constructed quickly and that is why now it is good and looks. I do not know what all surprised. And then there's Medvedev spoke and forbade to build something at the Olympic venues. "The decision will help preserve the unity of the architectural design of Sochi as the venue for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2014". That is, zakonserviruem and save.

The buildings are empty, no one knows how to use them, it is necessary to keep the main thing (why? For whom?). To download an empty object, in the next three years, Sochi authorities plan to spend 78, 7 million rubles. The money will go to the "preparation and conduct meaningful event activities at the facilities of the Olympic legacy" and coverage of these events in the print media. How many will go to the maintenance of the entire infrastructure is unclear.

Olympic venues is a big problem for all the countries who took the Olympics. Everywhere they look out of place and are rarely used by 100%. Moscow hosted the Olympics in 1980. So what? Luzhniki Olympic and other objects for the most part are either semi-abandoned or rarely used, and on special occasions. Olympics - it's a one-off story. Cities hosting major sporting event are divided into two types. Some understand it and immediately after the Olympics are beginning to rebuild. Other proud saved and spend millions on something somehow to load objects.

Sochi today held different events, from Formula 1 to concerts and sporting events. But no event will never fully load the Olympic Park. There never will be crowds of people and thousands of buses with spectators and athletes. No one else will need very broad streets and large hotels housing, no one needs many stadiums in one place and a huge media center. I do not understand why all keep it?

It is understandable that no money is not enough for the maintenance of stadiums and infrastructure. No business will not work here. Why open a restaurant or a shop when customers will be several times a year?

What to do? All this should be partially demolished and rebuilt. Stadiums disassembled and transferred to other cities (as far as I know, there are some collapsible). Buildings under remodel schools, hospitals and universities. Vast empty areas to build up housing, shopping and entertainment centers. Then perhaps this story will somehow work.

A year ago there was a case.

Why these huge empty lawns, beyond which it is impossible to maintain. There are no more people. It is necessary to build up all this. Or gardens do at least some sense will be.

This stadium "Fischt", it spent nearly 800 million dollars, but it has been used only twice (at the opening and closing of the Olympic Games), an additional 60 million dollars will be spent on its refurbishment in preparation for the World Cup in 2018. Disposable story again.

All deficiencies remain.

This is how it looks today. And after a year will look the same.

On the Ice Palace is only one "Big" state represented by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "South Sports" (belongs to the edge) continues to spend on its maintenance of 1 million rubles a day - most of the leaves to maintain the ice. How much is spent on the maintenance of all no one knows the Olympic Park.

After the closing of the Olympic Games in London, there came the builders, and began to remodel the park, stadiums and infrastructure. Built housing, trade, made everything suitable for operation in normal everyday life of the city. We decided to save. It looks ridiculous. It's like, after a large holiday home in the living room to keep a huge table for 20 people, every day of his serve, in memory of the festival. It looks stupid? Sochi now is the same. Let's see what happens.
