Best Cities to Visit in Russia


Traveling to Russia is not a joke - you need to go round the continent. An understanding of coloring comes either immediately or never. In the case of this country - often the first option. Moreover, regardless of the chosen direction, season and pastime format. 

We have prepared a selection of cities that the traveler who has landed at the Moscow airport is simply obliged to feel.

Here we start then


More than five million tourists cannot be wrong. Like thousands of those who came to see this city and decided to stay there forever. Parks, squares, theaters, art centers ... night clubs. In general, the capital. The one-day program is to walk along the top, but travel agencies encourage at least three days. Then you can get to the 301-meter skyscraper, the Tretyakov Gallery, walk along Red Square, buy tickets to one of 130 theaters, then determine the whole day for excursions to Orthodox churches.

St. Petersburg

The cultural capital, the brainchild of hundreds of memes about indigenous intellectuals, a too hot place in the summer season, but always worthy of the best excursion reviews. You need to visit the Hermitage, take a walk along Nevsky Prospekt (to understand why many songs are written about it), certainly - Palace Square, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the cruiser Aurora, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and then on to your interests. In summer there are festivals and “white” nights, in winter there are a lot of pubs, bars and restaurants in all the environs of the metropolis. Caution - bridges are built at night.


The resort town on the Black Sea. From here, all the consequences - hotels on the beach, small restaurants and souvenir shops, waterfalls, observation towers, a dendrological park and a special option for those who did not have time to arrive in the summer. In winter, they ski in Sochi.


One of the playful nicknames of the city is Russian Chicago. The capital of Siberia was built for 70 years, and it would seem, what is there to watch? But the coloring is enough: visit the Opera and Ballet Theater (one of the largest in the country), the Museum of trains, the Museum of the Sun, a theater looking like a ship - Globus, and the promenade - for romantics. You can get there by tram. Akademic town is located on the shores of the Ob Sea. By right, it is considered one of the world centers of science.


The city with a magical name is a continuation of the theme of the Russian seaside. It is said here that the city’s seaport is the birthplace of true sailors. The port city is not limited to the promenade, but tourists cannot be discouraged from here. The main attractions are the Gostiny Dvor and the Museum of the Old Mansion.


Perhaps one of the most comfortable cities for foreigners, and this is understandable during the first excursion along several streets. The burgher quarters say a lot about the history of the city, which intersect with Soviet buildings in a quite variegated manner.

The port of Kaliningrad never freezes, and tourists can enjoy the scenery of the embankments, where seagulls fly freely, old bridges from the 16th century, the Museum of the World Ocean. In Kaliningrad there is the grave of Kant.


The coloring of Tatar history is clear not only to visitors to the House of Tatar culture, but also to any tourist who has fallen into a city with a thousand-year history. Sightseeing and communication with the local population will tell you how harmoniously the Muslim East and Western culture coexist. Be sure to try the traditional Tatar cuisine.

A branch of the Hermitage is also located in Kazan.


Returning to the ski resorts - Yekaterinburg invites you to ride in the winter, well, in the summer go up to the observation deck to take some memorable photos that capture the whole city. Walking on the Arbat, you will find painted bears. Famous gift to the city from France.

The merchants' architectural style was diluted with modern monuments - some of them are the heroes of Russian comedy series. Be sure to book tickets to the Opera and Ballet Theater.
