Russia, the world's largest and perhaps least understood
country definitely deserves the visit of any inquisitive,
adventurous person, whether it be for short history and
museum-heavy trip through Moscow and St Petersburg's cultural
treasures, or a more wide-ranging trip that could include an
almost endless list of destinations: the mountains of the
Caucasus, the beaches of the Black Sea, the vast Volga River,
the endless tracts of Taiga in Siberia, magical Lake Baikal, or
the volcanoes of Kamchatka.
While people often refer to the country simply as Russia, it's
actually very much the Russian Federation - taking in over 100
different nationalities and languages, including Muslim, Jewish
and Buddhist populations from Chechnya on the Georgian border to
Arctic Chukotka, just a short distance from Alaska. Everything
exists here on an inhuman scale, whether it's Moscow's vast
eight-lane highways or the endless flat scenery of the Russian
steppe. The vast distances involved mean that flying around is
often the only reasonable way of getting around, although the
country's famous Trans-Siberian railway is a great way to see
more of the country if time allows.
