Russia is a country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia, with a rich history and culture, from the stunning architecture of St. Petersburg to the iconic Red Square in Moscow, Russia's capital and the largest city in Europe. Don't miss a trip to Lake Baikal and the chance to try traditional food like pelmeni and vodka.

Russia, the largest country in the world, is a destination that should be on every traveler's bucket list. From the iconic onion-domed churches of St. Petersburg, to the grandeur of Moscow's Red Square, Russia offers a unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty.

First-time travelers to Russia should definitely visit St. Petersburg, the former imperial capital, known for its stunning architecture, world-class museums, and picturesque canals. Don't miss the Hermitage Museum, one of the largest art museums in the world, and the Peter and Paul Fortress, the city's original citadel.

Of course, no trip to Russia would be complete without a visit to Moscow, the country's modern capital. Moscow's most famous landmark is the Red Square, home to the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral and the iconic Lenin's Mausoleum.

For those looking to experience Russia's natural beauty, take a trip to Lake Baikal, the oldest and deepest lake in the world, located in Siberia. It's a perfect place for outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and fishing.

And don't forget to try some traditional Russian food like pelmeni, borscht, and caviar. And a vodka shot is a must-try for any traveler.
