I have long held a burning desire to go to Russia, maybe someday I will make it there. Thanks for the post, it was a great read.
Thank You. I still can't believe we went.
If you do go, St. Petersburg is the place (although Siberia intrigues me).
However, I've not heard anything good about visiting Moscow. Another European group we ran across in St. P. said it was a very dirty city. (Industrial?)
