This year, Sochi also acquired the highest-altitude Ferris wheel in this country which sits on top of a mountain and offers a great view of the city environs from a height of 700m above sea level.

Until recently, the largest Ferris wheel in Russia was the Moscow-850 which takes visitors 75m into the sky.
