Russia-themed areas in London

Two ambitious Russian-themed areas are opening in London’s Kensington Gardens to coincide with the London Olympic Games.


The areas will promote the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and showcase Russia as a sporting, business and cultural venue. According to organizers, the “Russia Park” on Perks Field, between Kensington Palace and the popular Diana memorial playground will house “picnic zones, performance spaces, a sport activities area” and more; the “Sochi Park” on the Albert Memorial Lawns, opposite the Royal Albert Hall, promises an interactive ride through the mountains and a huge ice rink with “the biggest ice show ever to be staged outside Russia.”
