Moscow Russia, tourism, 10 reasons to fall in love with it.
2. NATURAL SCENARIOS: The immense extension of the Russian territory gives us the combination of the most diverse geographies, resulting in countless places to explore and take some of the best pictures of your life. Among the unmissable natural destinations are the Volga River (the longest in Europe), Lake Baikal in Siberia, the Multa lakes in the Altai region, the Kamchatka peninsula and the Caucasus Mountain Range. The adrenaline of adventure tourism in these regions -fishing with bears, climbing the highest peak in Europe, trekking in volcanic craters- is an extra reason to discover the depths of Russia.
4. WINTER: It is true, the Russian winter is among the coldest in the world, but it is worth it to wrap up with a good “ushanka” (the typical fur hats) to see the most beautiful snowy landscapes that we can imagine, like something out of a fairy tale. Even if you are not an Olympian, you can still have fun skiing, skating or sledding. But for a truly magical experience, it’s worth going north to see the Aurora Borealis in Siberia, those mysterious lights in the sky that can only be seen at that point on Earth.
