Why visit russia

For many, a Russian vacation might not seem to be the obvious holiday choice. It’s true that Russia still has a lot of developing to do, but the rough edges shouldn’t stop you from appreciating the countless unique diamonds that should make travel to Russia a top contender for any serious traveler’s bucket-list.

East-Meets-West Culture

Apart from Turkey, Russia is the only nation in the world that encompasses both the Asian and European continents. This unparalleled transcontinental positioning provides a vantage point from which both sides of the world can be appreciated and examined in all their many merits and faults. Visitors to Russia will find that while the comforts of western society—such as coffee shops with free WiFi and 24/7 supermarkets— are widespread, the Cyrillic characters, along with Russia’s many other idiosyncrasies provide that perfect window into the East. On a visit to Russia, you would quickly recognize the scenes depicted on the murals in St Basil’s cathedral; yet the lavish, ostentatious, showering of gold and vibrant colors are so Eastern in feeling.

Each brick or weather-worn plank that form the foundation of Russia’s many architectural masterpieces tells a thousand stories. From the first, multi-domed, Byzantine churches to the over-the-top, opulent palaces (whose sheer excess would ironically spell the end of the Russian Empire); there is a mind-boggling array of architectural wonders to explore and learn the history of. Which is why a vacation in Russia is as much an education as it is a holiday

Untouched Nature

Deep, dark and mostly desolate; the Russian wilderness is as enigmatic and shrouded in mystery as its people. Dive into the ice-blue depths of Baikal, surmount the pristine slopes of the Altai Mountains and revel at the stark, volcanic landscapes of Kamchatka Far East on an unforgettable adventure holiday in Russia. While revelling at Russia’s boundless forests, those with patience can also spy bears catching spawning salmon, marvel at the 2.5m wing-span of the Steller Sea Eagle and get up close with polar bears in the Arctic Circle.

Food (and drinks!)

It’s a shame that Russia’s fantastic culinary culture has yet to be discovered by people outside the Slavic-block. Nourishing, yet served with a twist of sophistication, Russia’s traditional dishes strike the perfect balance between healthy and hearty. While the soups, syrniki and syelodka-pod-shuboi (herring-under-fur coat) give a visit to Russia its flavor; it’s the drinks that set the tone in this land of mysticism and sincere friendship. Sample all that you can on your Russian vacation.

Winston Churchill once said that “Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” and we agree. When you travel to Russia, you will see for yourself that it is a country like no other. It’s impossible to capture the essence of this huge land in a few words— it has to be seen, alive and kicking, in all its perplexity.
