Russia trip today is an encounter with an undiscovered land...
It’s a country of vast landscapes, vibrant life, beautiful contrasts, and interesting people. It is a nation of enormous diversity and tremendous vitality. Taking an immense space of 9000 kilometers from west to east and 5000 from north to south, being home to people of so many different nationalities and customs, Russia is often called a "bridge" between Europe and Asia, both geographically and sociologically. It is a country that spans eleven time zones and two continents, ending less than 50 miles from North America.
Within this vast expanse lie the largest freshwater lake in the world, rivers and forests teeming with fish and wildlife, awe inspiring volcanoes, and towering mountains. Russia is the largest country on earth, with enormous tracts of land that have been opened to travelers only in the last few years.
Visiting Russia, especially if you come by a plane, you'll see never ending forests and lakes, scattered among them, gleaming little churches in Moscow and impressive Emperors’ palaces in St. Petersburg.
It is a miraculous country and still mysterious to many foreigners, with many cultural and historic treasures, unspoiled nature; and industrious, bright and hospitable people. Russia mothered Peter and Catherine the Great, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Pushkin, Tchaikowsky, Nabokov, among others, who have contributed to the rich cultural heritage.
