Russia is the largest country in the world, spanning nine time zones. Most of the country has huge reserves of some of the world’s most important resources such as oil, gas, coal, platinum and gold. Russia has both extensive coastlines bordering with the Arctic Ocean and Northwest Pacific, as well as smaller coastlines on the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas.
Russia is immense and extraordinarily packed with attractions for all types of visitors. The best known sights are in and around the capital city of Moscow, where spectacular architecture and historical buildings are in abundance. There is a countless supply of museums, beautiful old monasteries and churches. Russian's history is one of the reasons why tourists come to this country, being drawn by its fascinating, sometimes surreal and from time to time brutal saga.
Major tourist routes in Russia include travel around the Golden Ring of ancient cities, cruises on the big rivers including the Volga, and long journeys on the famous Trans- Siberian Railway. Diverse regions and ethnic cultures of Russia offer many different foods and souvenirs, and show a great variety of traditions, including Russian banya, Tatar Sabantuy, or Siberian shamanist rituals.
