Russia is the largest country of the world. It takes about a week to cross the country’s ten time zones by train, and ten hours by air, from the Baltic Sea in the west to the Japan Sea in the east. Russia has the largest river in Europe, the Volga; the world’s largest lake, the Caspian Sea; the world’s deepest freshwater lake, the Baikal; and Europe’s highest peak, Elbrus.
Russia puzzles and fascinates. Taking up an immense space, a home to different nationalities and cultures, it’s often called a bridge between the East and the West. You can spend a lifetime exploring it without ever unveiling all its mysteries or feel at home over a weekend. We invite you on a remarkable journey to Russia.
