some stunning sights and is a desirable destination for all. Being
a country that speaks over 100 different languages and is host to
people of dozens of varied nationalities, you're sure to be

Not only is Russia one of the largest countries in the world, it
has to have everything located inside of the country, completed on

The city was planned and built with the help of leading
architects from all over the world, and the result is an eclectic
blend of European and traditional Russian styles. One huge palace
after another, imposing architectural ensembles and austere granite
embankments bear testimony to a magnificent kingly past of the
city. St. Petersburg combines its fascinating Russian heritage with
a distinctly European outlook. Considered the cultural heart of
modern day Russia, St. Petersburg is rapidly regaining its
reputation as one of the Great Cities of Europe.
If you're looking for a place of fun, laughter and rich in
excitement then Russia is the place for you!
