Russia Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 76%, Russia was the ultimate "no go zone" for much of the 20th century, during the days of the old "Iron Curtain". The Iron Curtain has collapsed with a resounding thud and Russia has propelled itself into the cross hairs of legions of PlanetHoppers! Many come to see such places as Red Square, the onion domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin, the Hermitage Museum, the Bolshoi Theater, Gorky Park, St. Petersburg - a litany of world famous destinations. However, spanning a dozen time zones, the country is truly vast, and the best way to experience it is to take a journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway, arguably the world's single greatest journey. It will take you countless miles through the very heart of Russia, all the way to Vladivostok in the Sea of Japan. When you see the sun rising over the Siberian tundra, it will surely fuel your lust for adventure and keep you going. Why not just get off at every single train stop? Explore that place, then get back on the train, go onto the next place, get off, explore, get back on... well, you get the idea. It just may take you months to complete this wondrous journey through Russia, but you'll probably be glad that you took it!
