Russia is the biggest country in the world and it has so many places to visit. Some of you might already know that I’m a native Russian and I used to live in beautiful St. Petersburg until I was 22 years old.  I’ve been to Moscow multiple times as well, so I will be sharing not only the best tips on St. Peterburg, but I will also cover Moscow a lot. I’ve been to a couple of other places and cities in Russia, so you might find the articles about them (e.g. Sochi and Nizhny Novgorod) useful if you’re looking for Russia travel inspiration.

I will also be sharing tips on how to travel around Russia, what are the most common scams in Russia (and general safety tips for Russia) as well as best cities to visit, ways of getting around and obtaining a Russian visa. So if you’re interested in travelling to Russia, stay with me: I will tell you a lot about my home country (and hopefully you won’t be disappointed).

Some of the posts about Russia I’m especially  proud of and would recommend you to read:
