All people know Russia is a Northern country with snow, frost, cold winter. All keep in mind pictures of taiga, Siberia, polar bears and vodka. Well, it's all true, we all know now that 65% of Russia is covered with permafrost, but there is one fact than less people know. Russia has a territory that is
located more to South than Milano, Nice, Monte Carlo and other places of European South. And this territory occupies more square than France or Germany. Meet Sochi, the Winter Olympics 2014 host. This Russia doesn't look like Russia at all, maybe the next place for your vacation?
Many Russians like sauna or "banya" as it's being called in Russia. They don't imagine their next weekend without a visit to such a place together with their friends. This big demand in Russia for saunas has gave a birth for such a strange device as "The Mobile Sauna". A four wheel drive truck is a sauna
equipped now. It can take you deep inside the Russian woods and you would have your sauna there. Sauna lovers say that there is nothing in the world like jumping right from the hot sauna into the cool waters of a forest lake in some place hundred miles away from civilization...
Traffic jams are not rare in big Russian cities. But road police or just police cars standing in traffic jams are rare. They prefer not to wait but use roadsides, pedestrians walkways or even the opposing lanes so that to bypass
those jams, why wait if nobody penalizes them? But this time it went wrong, using the sideway had its own surprise and they got stuck for much longer time that could wait standing in the jam, like others.
