Russia, the world’s largest country, has a fascinating and complex past. This unique country is home to around 144 million people. Because of its booming economy, engagement in global policymaking, and strong military presence, the country has abandoned its identity as part of the USSR in the previous 30 years and has gradually emerged as an economic and political superpower.
Russia’s entertainment business is thriving, and there are an increasing number of leisure options available. Favorite pastimes, on the other hand, are timeless and priceless in Russia. Russia offers a wide range of travel experiences, from Earth’s oldest lake to slopes of glacier-capped mountains.
All travel enthusiastic and lovers it’s time for you to explore some of the top tourist attractions in Russia with Nitsa Holidays.
- Trans -Siberian Railway
The historic Trans- Siberian railway runs from Moscow to Vladivostok, a city near Russia’s borders with China and North Korea, and is part of the world’s longest railway system. The road of the tsars was started in 1891 by Tsar Alexander III and finished in 1916 by his son, Tsar Nicholas II. The majority of travellers use the train as an overnight accommodation when travelling from one location to another. First, second, – and third-class sleepers, some with private restrooms and showers, are available on the train.
- Take a tour to canal
Sail around some of St. Petersburg’s most magnificent monuments for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and learn why the city is known as the “Venice of the North.” Explore the city’s riverside wonders, including the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Mariinsky Theatre, as well as various cathedrals, palaces, and other structures.
A day boat across the Neva River and main canals, a dinner cruise on the Neva River, or a nocturnal trip to be entertained by the illuminated skyline and open drawbridges are all options. The majority of these canal tours include a guide and an audio guide.
- Moscow Kremlin
The Moscow Kremlin, a towering red-brick fortification stretching along the Moskva River’s banks, is the city’s majestic centerpiece and one of Russia’s most famous sights. The Kremlin, which was formerly the seat of Russian grand dukes and later became the official residence of Soviet leaders such as Lenin and Stalin, is currently the official residence of Russian President.
Picnics in attractive locations and multi-day walking tours are also popular forms of outdoor enjoyment. Many camp romantics in Russia enjoy floating down rivers in boats and canoes, singing songs to the guitar beside the fire, and cooking stewed mead for the entire group. Cycling tours are also popular, despite the poor road conditions. In the winter, many Russians enjoy skiing. Many adrenaline junkies use parachute jumps or hand-gliders or sailwings to fly.
- Winter Palace
The Winter Palace, one of St. Petersburg’s most renowned sights, dominates Palace Square and serves as a symbol of the city’s cultural, historical, and aesthetic heritage. The palace began life as a Dutch-style wooden residence erected for Peter the Great and his family in 1708. The Winter Palace was later renovated into the colourful and beautiful structure that it is today.
- St. Sophia Cathedral
Saint Sophia Cathedral is located within the grounds of the city’s Kremlin in Novgorod, Russia’s oldest city. The cathedral is Russia’s oldest church building, standing 125 feet tall and ornamented with five beautiful domes. The Mother of God of the sign, an image said to have protected Novgorod from siege in 1169, is one of the many historic religious objects on display at Saint Sophia Cathedral.
