IN 1838, THE FORT OF ALEXANDRIA, renamed Navaginsky a year later, was founded at the mouth of the Sochi River. In 1896 it was renamed Sochi. The name "Sochi" has two possible sources: it could be a variation of the term "sshatche" which was used by the local people to mean "place by the sea" or "shacha" which locals used to mean "sell a head" because it used to be where slave markets were held.
