WHAT WE LOVE

Russia is the world's largest nation with a wide range of landscapes ranging from freezing snowy tundras to hilly mountains. The nation is best known for consistently performing well at world class sporting events like the Olympics and the World Cup. Other than excelling in sports, the country is also home to two of the world's most revered ballet companies - Bolshoi and St Petersburg Mariinsky. Don't miss the iconic colourful domed roofs of Saint Basil's Cathedral or the sprawling exhibits on display at the State Hermitage Museum. You can also marvel at the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace which used to house the Tsar and Tsarina of Russia.
