Places to visit in Russia



Hello and welcome to my Places to visit in Russia page.

When Moscow becomes too small for your travel ambition, it's a time to extend your Russian traveling beyond the capital of Russia. Adventure seekers can board the Trans-Siberian Railway in Moscow for a fascinating journey along nearly 6,000 mile of Russia’s vast expanse. This daring route begins in Moscow and ends in Vladivostok and it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most. Aeroflot provides regular service between Moscow and St. Petersburg, another favorite Russian destination. Learn more about Russian cultural and tourist attractions via my website and please share your Russian travel story, send me your comments or questions via my contact me form. Looking forward to hear from you!
