A visit to Russia today is an encounter with an undiscovered land. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union visitors have a fresh opportunity to explore a vast array of exciting and ancient cultures, from the glittering imperial Russia of St. Petersburg to the timeless village life of Siberia and Irkutsk.
Russia today is a nation of enormous diversity and tremendous vitality. The cultural traditions of a century ago have re-awakened with a newfound strength - ancient cathedrals are being rebuilt and restored, colorful markets hum with activity and literature and the arts are quickly regaining the creative renown they enjoyed decades ago. A new Russia is now in full bloom.
Best time to visit: Most of the country has a continental climate, with long, cold winters and brief summers. The most populous areas of the country in European Russia, in the south of West Siberia and in the south of the Russian Far East, (including the cities of Moscow and Saint Petersburg), experience a humid continental climate. Annual precipitation decreases from about 25–30 inches in the European region to less than 2 inches a year in parts of Central Asia.
Many specialties actually originate from different republics of the former Soviet Union.
Matryoshka Dolls in all sorts of combinations, Palekh (wooden boxes with painted scenes inside), Babushka Scarves, amber and other precious stone jewellery, paintings, fur hats.
