Abstract: The Olympic Villages are centers that accommodate athletes and officials, usually built near the fields where the competitions in the Olympic Games will take place. The Olympic Games are divided into summer and winter Olympics and they are held every 4 years. Each year, the interest in the Olympic Games and therefore the number of participating countries and athletes are increasing. Recently, the Olympic Villages show similarities with small cities. In this research, the historical development of Olympic Villages is mentioned in the examples around the world and Turkey. In addition, it has been revealed with data that such organizations provide social, cultural and tourism gains for countries. As a result, proposals have been suggested about the subject.
