As the world’s largest country, it is unsurprising that Russia offers something for everyone. Here you will find everything from historic cities and idyllic countryside, to artistic culture, extreme weather, epic train journeys and bustling social scene. From art to adventure, there is no shortage of attractions. Tread in the footsteps of literary greats, including Tolstoy and Pushkin, with a visit to their country estates or go skiing in Krasnaya Polyana and trekking in the Altai. Take in the modern, energetic, and hugely divided city that is Moscow, as well as picturesque St Petersburg, which is home to architectural treasures and a distinct blend of old and new. Journey along the Trans-Siberian route, take in the scenic beauty of the world’s deepest lake, Lake Baikal and enjoy the hospitable welcome of the Russian people.
