History of the resort

Main / About the resort / History of the resort

Rus resort complex was constructed in the late 1930s as a resort for People’s Commissariat for food industry of the USSR.

During the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), the resort functioned as a hospital, and starting from 1946 it became a health resort called Sanatoriy №1 (Resort №1) and later – Noviye Sochi (New Sochi).

The first (main) building was constructed in the architectural style of the 1950s and was commissioned in 1955.

In 1959, administration of the resort was transferred to the General affairs department under the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In 1966, it was named after V.I.Lenin.

The resort was developing fast: Resort treatment methods were improving, new buildings were added, and support infrastructure was advancing. In 1982, the Medical center and Building №3 were commissioned.

In March 1992, a decree of the Russian President announced that management of the resort was transferred to the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia, and later that same year, the joint-stock company Rus was formed.

In August 2003, the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Sanatoriy Rus (Resort Rus) under the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation was formed.

A large-scale reconstruction and modernization of all the resort’s functions began.

In August 2009, Rus resort and Avangard resort merged into the Federal State Institution Rus Resort Complex.

Today, Rus resort is a modern respectable resort complex, a destination for comfortable and beneficial holidays in Sochi, meeting high international standards of hospitality and safeguarding the best traditions of health resort programs!
