The es­ti­mated costs of the PyeongChang 2.014 Win­ter Olympics was five times less than the

Sochi Olympics, the costli­est ever. To avoid any po­ten­tial con­fu­sion with North Korea’s cap­i­tal, Py­ongyang, the PyeongChang re­sort - which is just 50 miles south of the de­mil­i­ta­rized zone that sep­a­rates t. the two coun­tries - has changed its name for he Games, by cap­i­tal­iz­ing the “C.”

In to­tal, 13 venues, split be­tween PyeongChang and neigh­bour­ing Gangne­ung, were used dur­ing the 17 days of the Games. Six new venues were built, and ad­di­tional venues were ren­o­vated for the Games. Source: CNN
