Russia is a land of snow and harsh winters, blooming meadows and mighty rivers, midsummer sun, a hospitable country with a big heart, talented businesses and amazingly artistic people. There are countless natural, historical and cultural attractions in Russia. It covers more than 17 million square kilometres. It takes about a week to cross the country’s ten time zones by train, and ten hours by air. Russia’s population is about 150 million.  It is really a «must see» destination!

Russia has the largest river in Europe, the Volga; the world’s largest lake, the Caspian Sea; the world’s deepest freshwater lake, the Baikal; and Europe’s highest peak, Elbrus.

Visiting Russia is a great way to experience for yourself a culture that is very different to what you may be accustomed to in the West. However, Russia today has excellent facilities for tourism, with a wide range of places to stay and an excellent market range in terms of price, location and type of accommodation.
