Russia

I visited Russia in May 2006.

In St Petersburg you get the magnificent legacy of Peter the Great and the Tsars that followed. The grandeur of the palaces and the art collection of the Hermitage are hard to beat anywhere in the world.

Moscow is again the capital of a vast country of very patriotic and hardy people. Come as friends and been received by perfect hosts. The Kremlin and Red Square dominate the centre of a rapidly developing modern city and the metro stations are the pride of the people.

The Golden Ring is the heart of old Russia. The oldest and most important ancient towns of Russia are found here. Monasteries, churches and miraculous icons still exist from the founding years of the country going back almost a thousand years.
