Russia, the largest country in the world, has it all to attract any type of traveler. Whether you are looking for a cultural trip or wilderness journey, visiting Russia will guarantee real adventure unlike anywhere in the world.

Rich in history and culture, Russia’s capital Moscow offers many things to do. Some of Moscow’s most popular tourist attractions are the Kremlin, Bolshoi Theater, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Red Square, GUM, Gorky Park, and Stary Arbat.

Metro stations in Moscow are like an art gallery in themselves. Make sure to check out Arbatskaya Station, Park Kultury Station, Kievskaya Station, Mayakovskaya Station, and Prospekt Mira Metro Station as they are the best ones.

St. Petersburg is even better than Moscow when it comes to art and culture. You can explore the Moika Palace, see St. Isaac’s Cathedral, and visit the amazing Hermitage Museum. Peterhof Palace and Tsarskoye Selo make great day trips from St. Petersburg.

A trip to Russia is not complete visiting Lake Baikal, the oldest lake globally. While hiking Chersky Mountain, exploring Olkhon Island, and relaxing at Khakasy hot springs are popular things to do in the summer, you can try cross-country skiing in the winter.

Belokurikha is the place to start your Russian adventure in the wild. You can access the Altai Mountains from here and enjoy many outdoor activities, such as kayaking, climbing, hiking, and cave exploring.

Another spot for a unique experience is the Russian tundra. Check out the Great Arctic State Nature Reserve for wildlife and Murmansk for the northern lights.

Last but not least, take the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway in Russia. It’s an unforgettable journey that will take you from the remote life of Siberia to Lake Baikal to undiscovered towns and villages. If your Trans-Siberian trip starts from Moscow, you will end up in Vladivostok, located near China and North Korea.
