Welcome to
Krasnodar Expats

We've put together this website as a resource for the expatriat community of Krasnodar, Russia. It is intended to be an information resource for those foreigners who are living in, or just visiting Krasnodar and the surrounding region. There is information about Krasnodar hotels, Krasnodar restaurants, Russian wine, the nearby Golden Sands gambling zone and the Sochi 2014 Olympics.
For those who are unfamiliar with Krasnodar (and Krasnodar Krai), it is located in Russia's south, and is considered to have the best climate in all of Russia. Its primary industries are Tourism and Agriculture. The Taman peninsula is home to Russia's wine industry (with Abrau Durso, Russia's leading producer of Sparkling wine), and Caviar is harvested from Sturgeon in the Azov Sea, which borders Krasnodar Krai to the Northwest. So, to quote Robin Leach, Krasnodar is truely the land of "Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams."


Upcoming Events


  • Forum - "Sochi-2013" (Sochi) - September 26-29, 2013
  • Meeting - Krasnodar English Club - June 30, 2013 (2:00pm)
  • Festival - "City Day"  (Krasnodar) - September 28-29, 2013 

    • The City of Krasnodar is the Capital of Krasnodar Krai (Territory). This region, also known as "The Kuban," is the southernmost region of Russia.  Approximately the size of the U.S. State of South Carolina, Krasnodar Krai is a diverse and wealthy region of Russia.
      The entire warm-water coastline of Russia falls withing the area of Krasnodar Krai. Stretching from Port Kavkaz, just across from the Crimea, to Sochi down near the border with the Republic of Georgia. Krasnodar Krai also includes most of the Russian coast of the Azov Sea. This is where the Russian Government has set aside a "gambling zone" that will be called Azov City. This "Russian Las Vegas" will be open on July 1, 2009.
      For those who are new to this region, we hope this website will be helpful. We'll be adding information to our directory as we can. For those who have been longtime residents of the city,  any information that you can add will be most appreciated.

      Do you have a question about Krasnodar? We'll be glad to answer any that you have. Please e-mail us at:
      Are you on FACEBOOK? There are two groups on Facebook that may be interest to you. There is a group called Krasnodar Expats, which is open to foreigners living in Krasnodar. The second group is Krasnodar English Club, which is open to anyone (Expat or Local) in Krasnodar who has an interest in meeting new people and speaking English!


      As this website grows, we'll be adding more and more topics. This would include information about public transportation, the local administration, and other topics of interest.
      While the focus of the website is primarily the City of Krasnodar, we'll also try to add information about the region. This would include the Black Sea coast, including the cities of Sochi, Tuapse, Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk and Anapa. As Russia continues to develop the area around Sochi and Krasnaya Polyana in preparation for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, we'll add information for those Expats who will be coming to Russia to work on related projects.
      Welcome to Krasnodar!
