Going to the Olympics? State Dept. Issues Travel Warning for Sochi

TravelBuzz! - FlyerTalk Forums - www.flyertalk.com
I would love to go to another Olympics but Sochi seems to be more risky than my trip to the Atlanta games after the bombing.

Then again, Atlanta didn't have a new anti-gay law, either.

An article from our news feed gave me pause:

Issues Travel Alert for Sochi Olympics

Quote:

The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert on Friday warning U.S. citizens to remain vigilant when travelling to Sochi, Russia for the Winter Olympics.

The alert said that terrorists have called for attacks on the Olympics and reminded travelers that the quality and standards for medical care in the region ?differ substantially from Western standards.?

The Caucasus Emirate, a Muslim separatist group viewed as a terrorist organization, has threatened to attack the Olympics and, in the past three months, three suicide bombings have occurred in Volgograd, a nearby city?.
