Russian Adventure Holidays
Russia is the biggest country in the world, reaching from the Baltic (with this aspect of the country under Europe) to the Pacific and the Arctic to Central Asia (which is listed as Russia in the Destinations Menu under Asia).
A country this huge naturally has an enormous variety of landscapes and attractions, perfect for cycling, walking or exploring on a cultural visit. West of the Ural Mountains, Moscow and St Petersburg provide plenty of architectural and human interest - the ornate domes of St Basil's Cathedral and the Church of Our Saviour's Blood rise above the busy streets, and the Armoury in the Kremlin and the Hermitage in the Winter Palace house incredible collections of art. To the east of the mountains lies Siberia, a seemingly endless expanse of wild landsape. Lake Baikal is the deepest and oldest lake in the world, home to 1,500 endemic species. Further east still is Kamchatka, dominated by volcanoes and a dramatic place for a trekking holiday.
