R U S S I A

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 8 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "Be strong - The Russians could make or break your journey"
  • Eagle Eye: Russia is big - very big! I only did St. Petersburg, Moscow and then around the "Golden Ring" northeast of Moscow which includes the towns and villages of Sergiyev Posad, Pereslavl-Zalesskiy, Rostov Velikiy, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, Suzdal, and Vladimir.
  • Hot Spots: St. Petersburg, Moscow, and the lovely "Golden Ring" area... oh and I bet the rest of Russia would be great to explore
  • The Low-down: Knowing the Cyrillic alphabet and some basic Russian are essential!
  • GlobeRovers Blog: Report 1, Report 2
  • Read about Russia's Golden Ring
