C'mon! Sochi is quite easy to remember! At least not as difficult as Novorsibirsk, Chelyabinsk, Nizhny Novgorod or some other russian cities.

It's definitely a -ch sound so Why on the earth It would be Sotsi? I really don't understand some of you guys typing mistakes.

There are actually quite a few former capitals of Japan whose English names have 5 letters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_of_Japan. Other than the currently accepted answer, the most well-known are probably Asuka, Osaka, and Heian.

Though I will readily admit that anyone who has heard of these (especially Heian) has probably also heard of the currently accepted answer ;)
