Holidays to Russia by Cox & Kings

Russia is a vast country – in fact, it is the largest country in the world. Stretching from eastern Europe all the way across to northern Asia, it covers nine time zones and a huge range of environments, much of it within the geographical territory of Siberia.

To the south are immense stretches of plains and steppes while to the north are forests and tundra. This huge expanse of land is broken up by features such as the Ural mountains, separating Europe and Asia; large bodies of water including Lake Baikal, the world’s oldest and deepest freshwater lake in the world; and thousands of rivers, the Volga being the most well-known.
