delegations and other events. The hotel is already under
construction, and the opening in early 2013 will allow one year of
preparation before the Winter Olympics.

undergoing a major transformation from a regional tourist hub into
a global tourism destination. Massive development is underway to
improve the infrastructure and create new and modern attractions,
