They have seen a huge growth in tourist revenue over the past decade and it is certain that tourism will continue to increase. Russia offers many different choices when it comes to places to visit. The most popular cities to visit are Saint Petersburg and Moscow. As the former capital of Russia, Saint Petersburg has been able to preserve many historic buildings that you can now visit and explore. Moscow is now the current capital and the city has much to offer. There are numerous art museums, as well as historical museums and buildings.
A famous and quite popular choice for Russian travel is to make the long and scenic journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway. This railroad connects Moscow through to the eastern part of Russia and even the Far East. You can travel from the comfort of a train car and see the entire country. This can be an alternative way to travel to the Far East rather than going by plane. The Trans-Siberian Railway has recently joined with the Eurasian Land Bridge, which allows easy access to mainland China. There are different types of fares available to fit within your budget. If you are lucky enough to afford it, you can even hire out your own private train car to have for yourself and anyone else you are travelling with. But there are cheaper fares available.
