    I want to travel someday through all of Russia, such beautiful country. People living in Moscow don’t understand or appreciate what they have beyond the MKAD, a large rich country with breathtaking picturesque vistas, can’t give up their dusty metropolis with commodities at every corner. Such a waste…

      Most Russians travel to cheap hotels in Turkey, Spain, Cyprus or Egypt. Around the lake Baykal you will find more foreigners than Russians. They still have the “soviet” idea of holidays: a big concrete bunker, an all inclusive buffet and roasting in the sun like a sausage. They usually have no eye for the true beauty of the nature of their own country. But the Russian hotels are also to blame, because outside the big cities of Moscow and Pieter the hotels are horrid and expensive.
