Best cities in Russia and ideal way to explore the countryside?
So, I'm taking my gap year this year and I've always wanted to travel around Russia - we learned about it in history class and I just think the history and culture is fascinating and I want to learn more! I know for a fact that I will be arriving in Moscow and spending a bit of time there, but is St Petersburg really worth visiting or is it just more of the same? Also, I've heard great things about going on adventures out into the more wild Russian countryside - do you have any advice on some of the better trips I could take?
Thanks so much! I can't wait for the responses!
