The huge country of Russia straddles two continents, contains 11 different time zones and has a landscape that varies from the domes of Moscow to the frozen landscapes of Siberia.

Moscow is the capital city, and arrival point for many flights to Russia. Here are some of the biggest tourist attractions: the Kremlin, Red Square and hedonistic clubs. Stately St Petersburg was capital of the Russian Empire for more than 200 years until the revolution in 1917. Its cityscape is magnificent, with awe-inspiring public buildings and its treasures straight out of a fairytale.

But though most travellers who book flights to Russia plan on visiting at least one of its main cities, away from the urban centres is a country of huge diversity. Russia contains more than 30 national parks. There is skiing and snowboarding at Mount Cheget and Mount Elbrus.  The Lapland Biosphere Reserve in Murmansk is naturally popular during Christmas time, and is home to reindeer, elks, brown bears and wolves. If you have time, take one of the epic train journeys across the country to watch the scenery unfold.

Getting around Russia

Because of Russia’s size, it can be easiest to fly if you’re planning on visiting different parts of the country. Aeroflot Russian Airlines is the national airline and has a comprehensive domestic flight network. It flies from Moscow to several cities including St Petersburg, Kazan, Samara and Vladivostok. A number of other airlines offer services, including S7 Airlines and Transaero.

The Trans Siberian railway is the longest railway in the world and possibly one of the most famous. It starts in Moscow and makes its way through Nizhni Novgorod, Kirov, Ekaterinburg, Omsk and over to Vladivostok. This is an amazing way to see the country.

Bus travel is also cheap and links cities and towns around Russia, but is not very comfortable. The main bus station in Moscow is called Schyolkovsky Bus Terminal.
