The 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia, and the event has already proven itself to be the most expensive Winter Olympic Games of all time. According to CNN, the 17-day event will cost Russia at least $50 billion. In fact, Russia spent $8.7 billion just to build a new railway in preparation for the Games, which is more than the total cost of the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver.
