Russia is the biggest country in the world and it is definitely worth visiting.
Usually people visit Moscow and St. Petersburg but there is much more to see in this country. In order to understand this huge country one must travel more. Traditions and cultures are surprisingly different from region to region.
I (Tolun) lived in Russia for about 4.5 months and spent lots of time travelling from Volgograd to Yekaterinburg, and from Yekaterinburg to Omsk. I also traveled from Crimea to Abkhazia and Northern Black Sea regions which are some of the most hospitable places in the world. Omsk is the city where I studied Russian language for 3 months back in 1999 and 2000. Well if you go that far and get blended in with the local people you will know there are no limits to their hospitality.
