Russia still mystifies many Western travellers with its massive size and long tumultuous history. In Moscow, visiting explorers will discover relics of Communism as they make their way through the winding streets around the Kremlin, as well as marvelling at the brightly coloured palaces and looming churches. Strolling within the confines of the Boulevard Ring means stumbling upon the old wooden buildings which still hide out, untouched, in the back corners of the city, and taking in some of the most famous sights in all of Russia.
A journey from the capital -maybe by train?- to St. Petersburg will see you alight in a more European city, but with just as much history to offer mingling among the meandering rivers which cut through the islands of the city. After walking along streets beside majestic palaces, a tour through the Hermitage museum or a visit to the opera, ballet, or the concert hall will round off any visitor’s Russian education.
While most travellers to Russia conquer these two great cities, many forget to explore the vast open spaces of this massive country’s interior. Russia has a land mass the size of Germany specifically reserved for national parks and reserves, making it a great destination not just for the culture vulture but for the outdoor adventurer as well.
