Best of Russia – 6 Nights/7 Days

Overview

The largest country in the world, Russia is both European and Asian. It has one- seventh of the world’s landmass, and spreads over nine time zones. Imagine this: Pluto has a surface area of 16.6 million km2; Russia has 17 million km2. And yet, for the most part, the vast areas of Siberia and the Far East are uninhabited: the never-ending taiga, the tundra and the Northern territories of extreme cold. (Yes, the coldest spot on the Earth is of course in Russia!)Russia blends an amazing number of European and Asian large and small nations and tribes into the one-of-a-kind mix the outside world calls “Russians”, and yet, Russians speak over one hundred (yes, one hundred!) languages.
The attraction and highlights of Russia are difficult to sum up in words. As the largest country in the world, it's not difficult to see how Russia can have it all. From UNESCO listed towns to nightlife rivalling the world's most sleepless cities, Russia packs a vodka-fuelled, culturally rich punch. Thirty years after the demise of the Soviet Union, 2020 is the perfect time to plan your Russian holiday.
