Russia is truly one of the most extraordinary countries to visit for history, culture, and dramatic landscapes. It's the largest country in the world, and with such a rich and varied history, stunning architecture, and incredible, diverse landscapes there are endless things to do and see in Russia.
History fanatics can spend time visiting the hundreds of landmarks, monuments, buildings, and museums of Russia's major towns and cities. Unmissable are the Tsars palaces, the Kremlin, and the Red Square. Those seeking art will love the Bolshoi Theater for ballet at its finest and Moscow's Pushkin Art Gallery, and the Mariinsky Theater and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
Thrill seekers can ride the The Trans-Siberian Express, visit Irkutsk’s traditional Siberian wooden cottages, and stop by stunning and enormous Lake Baikal. Other notable places to add to your itinerary are Kizhi Island, Vladivostoks, the clutch of ancient villages known as the Golden Ring, and the Black Sea resort town of Sochi.
With such an expanse of land it's impossible to condense the country other than to think of it as different regions, each with their own highlights and compelling reasons to visit.
The best time to visit Russia is in the summer.
