Russia is most often associated with Moscow and St. Petersburg, its major European cities and the heart of old Imperial Russia. But there is so much more, including Murmansk, halfway between Moscow and the North Pole and the world's largest city north of the Arctic Circle; Irkutsk, the cultural centre of Asian Siberia; the surpassing beauty of Lake Baikal, the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world; epic journeys on the almost 10,000km Trans-Siberian Railway, the longest continuous rail line on Earth with stops at Yaroslavl, Irkutsk, Lake Baikal and more; the shores of the Black Sea; the mineral springs and spas of the Caucasus Mountains; the ancient, somewhat fairytale towns northeast of Moscow that are the gems of Russia's "Golden Ring;" fabulous cruises along the Volga River, Europe's longest and the Russian heartland's main artery; Kamchatka, the Land of Fire and Ice along the frigid far-east Bering Sea, one of the world’s most remote yet spectacular destinations with volcanoes, boiling hot springs and geysers; and Vladivostok, a bustling port on the Pacific Ocean, at the terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railroad. Direct Flights will set up your discount travel arrangements, including cheap flights to Russia and discount accommodation in Russia, whether you'll be flying out of Germany, Australia, the United States or anywhere else in the world.
Both Mediaeval and modern, Moscow is Russia's heart and cultural soul. In Moscow Russia's Imperial as well as Soviet past meets its capitalist future: Lenin's Mausoleum remains, but it faces the GUM Department Store. Its old onion-domed cathedrals, theatres, galleries and museums, and traditional markets are all coming back to life amidst the city's modern skyscrapers and Soviet-era high-rise blocks. The list of world-renowned attractions in Moscow is almost as immense as Russia itself: Red Square, the Kremlin, the Pushkin Museum and Tretyakov Galleries, Arbat Street and the Bolshoi Theatre, just to name a few. St. Petersburg is Russia's imperial crown and one of the incontestable highlights of any European tour. Known as Russia's "Window to the West," St. Petersburg's baroque and neoclassical Italianate architecture, along with its cultural treasures and its network of canals, lend the city a sophisticated, distinctly European flavour, unlike the somewhat more exotic, eastward-looking Moscow.
