The dos and the don'ts for your amazing trip to Russia
To put it Churchill's way, Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. It attracts millions of visitors every year but it's neither a resort nor a particularly tourist oriented country. It has five-star hotels and a powerful government that seats in the most important tourist sights, making it complicated for travelers to see many of the tourist attractions.
The country has almost no signs in English and a limited number of people speak English. But your troubles will likely start long before arriving, since most people require a Russian visa to enter into Russia.

And, if you don't feel like planning a trip to Russia on your own, reach our helpful travel specialists.
