The largest nation on Earth, Russia is home to vast stretches of tundra and taiga, as well as some of the world’s most lavish royal palaces. With its strong, constant presence throughout history, there’s no doubt about Russia’s wealth of wonders.

In the capital city of Moscow, there’s the fortified complex of the Kremlin, the iconic Red Square in the East, and the blooming Alexander Gardens in the West.

In St. Petersburg, visit the official residence of past Russian emperors at the grand Winter Palace and enjoy a treasure trove of knowledge at the Hermitage Museum. As for natural wonders? Lena’s Stone Forest is a perfect example of a hidden gem left for your next big adventure.




Here are some additional tips for planning your trip to Russia:

  • Russia is a large country, so it is important to plan your itinerary carefully. Decide which cities and regions you want to visit, and book your transportation and accommodation in advance.
  • Russia has a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters. Be sure to pack appropriate clothing for the time of year you are traveling.
  • Russia uses the Cyrillic alphabet, so it is helpful to learn some basic Russian phrases before you go.
  • Russia is a cash-based society, so be sure to have enough cash on hand. Credit cards are accepted in some places, but they are not as widely used as cash.

The best time to visit Russia is during summer (June to August), with its long, light evenings and balmy temperatures of 21°C-25°C.
