Russia is not just a country. It is so vast, that it is a continent by itself. Most people associate it with cold and winter, but Russia spreads from the permament frost of the Arctic Ocean till the sunny slopes of the Caucasus Mountains, where in the gardens of Sochi you might even find banana trees.
The most obvious destinations are Moscow and Saint Petersburg, but there are several other places worth seeing and discovering. You will find here a few (Astrakhan for example), but there are still so many places in this intriguing country for us to discover too!
