Russia's main attractions include art, magnificent (and restored) cathedrals and monasteries, treasures and palaces of the czars, the performing arts, health spas, river cruises, historic sites, spectacular scenery, Siberia, and Moscow's Kremlin. Russia will appeal to travelers who have a sense of adventure and an open mind. Don't expect a relaxing vacation or 5-star luxury unless you're in Moscow or St. Petersburg. Don't expect deluxe accommodations either — a trip through Russia requires determination, flexibility, and plenty of patience.
