Russia is Eastern Europe's largest and easternmost country. It separates Europe from Asia and straddles both continents over a wide geographical area that engulfs many cultures, terrains, and climates.

Moscow is Russia's capital city, but it's an important cultural and historical center, too. Most individuals who travel to Russia visit Moscow first: here, the Kremlin's walls contain echos of legends, museums guard important examples of Russian art, the nation's rich and powerful strut their plumage, and pagan festivals, like Maslenitsa are interpreted anew for those seeking to get at the heart of Russian culture.

Moscow may give you an introduction to Russia, but Russia's other cities reward travelers with their variety, sights, regional traditions, and more.
