Russia Out Line

Why visit Russia?

Russia is the largest country by area and covers more than one eighth of the earth’s inhabited area. It spans 11 time zones and shares borders with 14 countries-shares maritime borders with Japan on one side and Alaska on the other. Can you imagine the size? We have started traveling around in Russia to curate experiences for you but given the size of the land, covering it is going to take some time. For a start take a look at the capsule we’ve created for you. Moscow and St. Petersburg are the two most important cities in Russia along with many small towns and cities of great interest for the curious traveler.

The quintessential Russian experience is one that has huge servings of culture, generous dollops of history, oodles of opulence in both natural beauty as well as man able marvels… All of it washed down with prodigious quantities of mouth-watering food and vodka… We’ll be coming with more as we cover more and more of this fascinating country.
