What’s more interesting than exploring the largest country in the world? Russia is so big, it occupies the land of two continents: Northern Asia and Eastern Europe. It’s the home of the longest river Volga, and the world’s deepest lake Baikal.

The extreme temperatures only add on the appeal of the country, as it’s the coldest place outside of North Pole and Antarctica. All these things make Russia very attractive to visitors who are eager and enthusiastic enough to explore it.

Russia is a great place to have fun – especially while travelling. You get to meet new people, explore cultures and travel through towns with popular tourist attractions. While on the trip, there are number of activities that can keep you entertained if you carry a laptop and have an internet connection.

Ivan Alekseevich Vladimirov (1869-1947), a Russian painter and draftsman, became known as the artist of the realistic school of painting.

In 1917-1918, he worked in the Petrograd militia. This experience helped him to create a unique cycle of documentary sketches of the events of these years. Source: humus.

Bizarre Russia

There have been a lot of strange goings on in Russia over the past decade, with supposed Russian secret agents claiming to have visited England on a special trip to see Salisbury Cathedral…

There were bizarre scenes in 2013 as well when dashcam footage captured the moment that a 66 foot asteroid crashed into Chelyabinsk. The asteroid was heavier than the Eiffel Tower and caused a stir all around the world.

Whilst this meteor crash was explained, there are plenty more incidents that have happened in Russia recently that have gone unexplained…

Russia never ceases to amaze

Amazing Interiors of Kazansky Railway Station

Kazansky Railway Station (until 1894 – Ryazansky Railway Station) is one of the nine railway stations of Moscow. The construction of the present building of the station, designed in the pseudo-Russian style, began in 1913 and ended only in 1940.

One of the significant architectural elements of the station building is the hall of the former restaurant. This part of the station was built in the mid-1920s. Today, it is used as a high comfort waiting room. Kazansky Station on Google Maps. Photos by: Vadim Razumov.
