Is Russia the right destination for you?

Russia fascinates people. It is the largest country in the world, 70 times bigger than the UK, has one foot in Europe, one in Asia and covers almost a seventh of the planet’s land mass… This excessiveness is not limited to its geography. It is a country rich in culture, that has given us some of the most brilliant artists, whether musicians or writers. A trip to Russia will automatically take you to St-Petersburg: ancient capital of the tsars and... Russia fascinates people. It is the largest country in the world, 70 times bigger than the UK, has one foot in Europe, one in Asia and covers almost a seventh of the planet’s land mass… This excessiveness is not limited to its geography. It is a country rich in culture, that has given us some of the most brilliant artists, whether musicians or writers. A trip to Russia will automatically take you to St-Petersburg: ancient capital of the tsars and cultural centre of Russia; with its numerous canals, it is often called the Venice of the north… 450 miles to the south, is Moscow, the largest town in Europe, with 10 million inhabitants. It is a sprawling capital, where all the populace of the Federation are represented; Moscow will rarely leave you indifferent. You then need to leave the towns to reach the vast expanses of Russia. Discover the edges of the biggest soft-water lake in the world, Lake Baïkal. Have a taste of Russian soul, by travelling on a train for hours and hours – probably the trans-Siberian train; or even a cruise on the Volga, the biggest river in Europe, that, with its tributaries, cuts across the biggest part of the country… These varied experiences will no doubt allow you to fall under the spell of Russia… See more
