Russia

Russia, formerly the Soviet Union, is a country in the midst of a massive transformation. In the last 20 years, communism has become capitalism, secrecy and barriers has been replaced with rampant tourism, and entire new industries have sprung up. Moscow and St. Petersburg are the hot spots for international tourism. The "white nights" in St. Petersburg in May and June give you 24 hours a day to see the beautiful views. The Russian people are warm and friendly, although English skills are mixed.
