La Rusia postsoviética está invirtiendo rápidamente los petrodólares de su capital, Moscú, y de la capital cultural de San Petersburgo en la ciudad de Vladivostok, anteriormente cerrada a los extranjeros. No obstante, todavía se puede encontrar el alma de Rusia entre los estoicos marineros de la ciudad polar de Murmansk y los babushkas de los centros turísticos del Mar Negro. No olvide llevar unos zapatos cómodos, mantener un hígado fuerte y desarrollar una mente abierta.

Holidays in Russia


Cosmopolitan European Russia runs from the frozen wastes of the northern Kola Peninsula to the southern vineyards of Krasnodar. Beyond the rugged Ural Mountains, Siberia's pine forests stretch east to the volcanic Kamchatka peninsula and the military stronghold of Vladivostok. Relax on the shores of Lake Baikal or discover exotic cultures around the southern Siberian towns of Kyzyl, Chita and Ulan Ude.

City breaks in Russia


Moscow is changing fast, but its heart beats in the Ancient Rus' – the ancient cities of the Golden Ring. Tatarstan's capital Kazan has a Kremlin to match Moscow's. Uncover the history of the Tsars among the canals of pre-revolutionary capital Saint Petersburg. Or find an ice-carved city at New Year in the Urals' capital of Yekaterinburg.

Things to do in Russia


Take the Trans Siberian Express through the industrial heartland of the Urals to the crystal waters of Siberia's Lake Baikal. Discover Buddhist temples hidden among the alpine peaks of Southern Siberia's Altai Mountains. Adventurous types will love the live volcanoes of Kamchatka.
