Russia is a vast country full of rich history and beautiful landmarks. Oftentimes it is not at the top of one’s list of places to visit. However, if you get the chance to journey to this northern country here a few of the best sights you simply cannot miss.

The Moscow Kremlin

Most often referred to as simply the Kremlin, this stunning structure is located in the heart of Moscow overlooking the Moskva River and the Red Square. There are other kremlins, or Russian citadels, throughout Russia but this is by far the most well-known one! Within the walls there are five palaces, four cathedrals and the Kremlin towers. This is the official home to the Russian President as well. The weird Kremlin means fortress inside a city, which this true is. With so much political and historical history the Moscow Kremlin is a must see when visiting Russia.

The Hermitage Museum

This museum is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is a museum of art and culture and is the largest in the world. It was founded in 1764 when Empress Catherine the great took over a large collection of paintings from Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky, a Berlin merchant. The collection is comprised of over three million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world. The collection is housed in six historic buildings along Palace Embankment. A majority of the building and collections are open to the public, the fee for entrance is higher for tourist than for locals, however entrance is free the first Thursday of every month. As one of the most stunning museums in the entire world, this surely cannot be missed on your visit to Russia.

Lake Baikal

This lake is located in the Siberian region of Russia. It may not be the first thing you think of when you hear Russia but it is well worth a visit. It is the largest fresh water lake in the entire world. It actually contains more water than the North American Great Lakes combined. It is also the world deepest lake with a maximum depth of 5,387 feet. This lake is home to thousands of different species of animals and plants, a lot of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. In 1996 the lake was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For any adventures outdoorsy travellers this is the perfect spot to visit on your Russian adventure.

Saint Basil’s Cathedral

This church is located in the Red Square in Moscow and is another infamous Russian landmark. The building is now a museum but was originally built in 1555 on the orders of Ivan the Terrible. The building was built to look like a flame rising from a bonfire, which makes it look like no other building in Russian architecture. It is now a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which includes the red square and the Kremlin. With its unique architecture and vibrant colours it is a must-see in Russia.
