The Russian Federation is the largest country in the world. It occupies about one-seventh of the earth's surface. It covers the eastern part of Europe and the northern part of Asia.
Russia is very popular among tourists. Travallers that come to the county usually visit Moscow, St. Petersburg and perhaps the Golden Ring. But there are a lot of other different places of interest.
The capital of Russia is Moscow. It is its largest political, scientific, cultural and industrial centre. It is one of the oldest Russian cities. On the other hand, St. Petersburg is considered to be a more European capital. The creation of Peter the Great, it is best-known for its 18th and 19th-century palaces; the Peter and Paul fortress, a former prison; the Hermitage Museum; and the White Nights. The Golden Ring is a group of old towns and cities like Suzdal, Vladimir, and Yaroslavl. There are churches, monasteries and fortresses, rich museums and preserved wooden villages in it.
If you like seeking a natural high you should visit Russia's best attractions - the Altai and Caucasus mountains. Travellers can visit Kamchatka to see its hot springs and view its wildlife and spectacular sunsets. But for my opinion, the best place for visiting are the crystal-clear depths of the pearl of Siberia — Lake Baikal — one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Moscow always was a centre of Russian and world culture. I think everyone should visit in and watch it's worldwide architectural and picturesque masterpieces. Russia is worth visiting and nobody can be bored in it.
