Home Asia Russia


Russia stretches across Eastern Europe and Northern Asia, but the majority of the population is located on the European side. Russia is known for its broad plains and can be very cold, however, during warm summer days, many enjoy swimming in the country's many lakes, rivers and seas. Many tourists travel to Russia to experience its rich culture and view its unique architecture. Moscow, the capital city, and St Petersburg, home to the Winter Palace of the Romanov Dynasty, are top destinations in Russia.

St. Basil's Cathedral, immediately recognizable and breathtaking, stands at the far edge of the Red Square in Moscow.
