Major Tourist Attractions: Moscow Kremlin, Kizhi, Red Square, Saint Basil's Cathedral, Hermitage Museum
Russia may be the largest country in the world, but few take the time to explore the country outside of Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Those that do find a country full of beautiful scenery and inviting people.
Outside of the two largest cities, Russia has a bit of something to offer everyone. In the middle of Siberia is Lake Baikal, the world's largest freshwater lake by volume. The lake is surrounded by small Siberian villages with friendly people ready to help a weary traveler.
No matter how beautiful Moscow is though, Saint Petersburg is even more striking. The cultural capital of the country, Saint Petersburg combines the best of Russian and European culture to create a dynamic and vibrant city.
In the south, Sochi, home of the 2014 Winter Olympics, is a fantastic destination year round. In the summer, Russians come to the country's only sub-tropical beach town. In the winter, the fun moves from the seashore to the mountains with fantastic skiing available for all skill levels.
No matter where you visit in Russia, however, you're unlikely to ever look at the country in the same way again.
