In recent years Russia has become a hotspot for international tourism. As of 2018, 25 million international tourists per year made Russia their destination. It is a place of long history, rich cultural traditions, and great natural variety. The country contains 23 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Among the man made UNESCO sites are things like the Historic Center of St. Petersberg, sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North”, with numerous canals and more than 400 bridges. There is also the iconic Red Square, featuring the Kremlin, and St. Basil’s Basilica. Other less-well-known sites include the Kizhi Pogost, two wooden churches built on an island in Karelia in the 18th century, and known for their bold visionary architecture. Also is the cultural and historical Solovetsky Islands, which have archaeological structures dating back to the 5th century BC. Other great sites include Yaroslavl, the ancient city of Derbent, and Ferapontov Monastery. In natural environment UNESCO sites, there are the Virgin Komi Forests, a 3.28 million hectare forest of tundra in the Urals, with one of the most extensive virgin boreal forests in Europe. Lake Baikal, in Siberia, is the oldest and deepest lake in the world and contains 20% of the world’s unfrozen freshwater--known as the Galapagos of Russia. The Western Caucasus is one of the few large mountain ranges of Europe that has gone relatively undisturbed by humans, and the Bikin River Valley contains one of the richest and most unusual temperate forests in the world--home to the tiger and Himalayan bear, as well as the brown bear and the lynx. But Russia is so vast that it’s not all one type of climate and flora, but other sites include the desert landscapes of Dauria, near Mongolia, and the Lena Pillars Nature Park, with magnificent rock pillars that reach 100 m high in a brutally unforgiving landscape where temperatures can range from 105 degrees fahrenheit in the summer to -76 degrees in the winter. Culturally, there are many amazing museums in Russia, such as the Tretyakov Gallery, the Kremlin Armoury and the State Historical Museum in Moscow, the Hermitage Museum, and the Russian Museum in St Petersburg, and the Kazan Kremlin.
