Tours of Russia

In essence, Russia offers an unlimited range of opportunities for everybody who wants to take a rest, who is eager to travel and learn. The appearance of many cities and their monuments has considerably changed in the last years. It is hard to recognize Kazan and Samara on the Volga, Pskov and Novgorod in the north. The same is true for small towns such as Suzdal, Torzhok, Veliky Ustyug, Izborsk, Rostov Veliky and Myshkin. Everywhere one can meet renovated churches and central historical areas of cities, revived in their old beauty, as well as new sights. Lovers of special adventures will surely enjoy travelling in Russia. No other country in the world has such a variety of preserved nature and animals that have never heard the shot of a gun, and variety of nationalities with their original culture and traditions. The Kamchatsky Peninsular, Lake Baikal, a Middle-Siberian mountain range - the Sayans, the delta of the Volga, and the Russian North are unique. Travels to the North Pole, to the Komandof s islands, and to the mysterious Putoranskye mountains in the basin of the Lower Tunguska are great adventures.

And all this grandiose, immeasurably vast and beautiful country is called Russia.
