127 choirs from 21 countries live in the hotel city «Barkhatnye sezony»
The largest hotel in Russia accommodates representatives of choirs of various age groups from 5 to 92 years old. The oldest participant of the World Choral Games, who is 92 years old, is a representative of China.
Most of the choral groups are also from China. The inhabitants of the Celestial Empire are very organized and extremely careful about food. During breakfast, they take exactly as many products as they can eat. They do not eat rice porridge, in our usual understanding. For breakfast, they cook simply boiled rice. Representatives of the People's Republic of China drink a lot of green tea and plain water from drinks.
If we talk about the peculiarities of nutrition, pork was excluded from the hotel menu for Iranians, and representatives of African countries preferred local vegetables and fruits.
All the guests of 21 countries were satisfied with the food and leaving the restaurants of the city-hotel «Barkhatnye sezony» in the morning always smiled, thanked and thumbed «like». Russian food and hotel service inspired the representatives of the groups to write a lot of positive reviews in the Wish Book.
In addition to the food, the guests really liked the location of the rooms almost next to the sea. In their free time, they strolled along the Imereti embankment, took pictures near palm trees and enjoyed desserts in the summer cafes of «Barkhatnye sezony».
The World Choral Games opened in Sochi on July 6 and will end on July 16 at the Bolshoi Ice Palace. Since 2000, the World Choral Games every two years unite cultures and countries in common singing. During this time, they have become the largest international choral competition in the world.
Of the 21 countries whose representatives now live in the city-hotel «Barkhatnye sezony», the largest groups of vocalists are from China (more than 3 thousand people), from Russia (almost 1000 people) and South Africa (300 people).
