Russia is a big and beautiful country, situated between Europe and Asia. There are over 200 different nationalities and ethnic groups living on the territory between Kaliningrad and Vladivostok. Travelers are usually impressed by local hospitality, by cuisine, exotic for a European taste, and by Russian rich cultural life: theatres, opera, and ballet.
The capital of Russia and the heart of the country is Moscow, where people come to see Red Square, Kremlin, and VDNKh. But experienced travelers will also surely visit exquisite Saint-Petersburg with its palace architecture, Kazan with its eastern spirit, the creative city of Ekaterinburg, and Sochi that combines seaside and ski resorts.
Passenger transportation in Russia is provided by public city services as well as by private ones. In big cities, there is metro, trams, trolleybuses, buses, and trains. In smaller places in Russia, there are only small buses sometimes. Taxi is not very expensive here in comparison with European countries. Over recent years, special mobile apps for taxi service are actively developing. You can use taxi service in the city or order a journey between the cities. There are however some disadvantages: many taxis in Russia work illegally without a permit, especially in the capital or in the southern regions of resorts, where due to the intense passenger flow, it’s getting more and more difficult to track and fine offenders.
