Happy Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony Day! What’s your favorite sport to watch? My favorite is ski jumping, but figure skating is a close second. Whatever sport you love most, I think we can all agree that Sochi has transformed its buildings into ultra-mod structures for the Winter Olympics. After spending more than $50 billion dollars — the priciest Olympics in history — the city now looks like it’s straight out of a Jetsons episode.

Bolshoy means “Major” and is one of the biggest venues of the Olympic ceremonies. It will house ice hockey, the most popular Olympic sport.

The Iceberg Palace will host figure skating and speed skating. The moveable venue will be dismantled and reassembled post-Games as a skating center in another Russian city.

Ice Cube Curling Center

The Ice Cube Curling Center is simplistic and ultra-mod in design. It is also a moveable venue that will be transported to another Russian city post-Games.

Happy Olympics viewing!
