Russia is a world all its own. No other country on the planet has such a mystical past, wealth of culture and history and diverse array of geography, with its frigid icy tundra to its lush green riverscapes. This country divided into 9 time belts and 4 climate zones is definitely a wonderful riddle of nature where everyone can find something special and unique.
Russia is a country of contrasts, where the richness of the past blends into the booming possibility of the present. Moscow and St. Petersburg, located so close to each other but with such great differences between them, are excellent examples of this. One is a symbol of the Soviet past with its monumental architecture and ambitious spirit; the other is the shining glory of tsarist Russia, where everything is art unto itself. Visiting both cities gives travelers a peek into vastly different aspects of Russia's history.
