Russia offers visitors the full scope of magic that is expected on a planned holiday. If there is something you want to experience, this nation will provide you with the opportunity. From the frozen wonders of Siberia to the active nightlife of each major urban center, you can enjoy the fusion of rustic beauty with modern convenience to have an incredible time, whether you prefer the East or the West.
Russia offers visitors some of the most unique UNESCO sites in the world today. One of the most special is the Volcanoes of Kamchatka, which only a few thousand people are allowed to visit every year. Geysers, hot springs, and other backcountry adventures can be found in every region, letting you embrace the call of getting away from it all to reset your clock in your own unique way.
There are also some intensely beautiful medieval sites to explore throughout Russia. Many are called to the onion-shaped domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, but don’t overlook options like Kizhi Island that don’t see the same level of tourism traffic. Some of the buildings don’t even have nails holding them together, yet have stood for centuries against the often harsh winters as a testament to the innovation of Russian architecture.
Ancient mountains stand guard over deep gorges, extensive plateaus, and numerous cities that offer you the perfect chance to experience a holiday in your way. Plan your trip to Russia and you will not be disappointed by what is waiting for you to discover.
