    This is just awesome. Let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for inspiring more people to visit our country!
    Really useful for us as a travel company doing inbound business as well, as we try to learn as much as possible from foreign travellers.

    I never really thought about traveling Russia before since I’m more attracted to the warmer climates, but this post definitely inspired me! Such a beautiful country! Great tips too!

      Surprisingly, it wasn’t so cold in autumn. But there are also great summers so consider going then instead! Thanks 🙂 Amanda

    O wow! That is a detailed one. Love how well it’s structured and I’ve learned a lot about Russia from this one. Photos are definitely making me go there!

    WOW. What an insanely useful post! We are currently backpacking Australia but being a Scottish redhead I am definitely not a sun worhsipper and dream of visiting Russia as it’s more my kinda climate ha! I am saving this for a later date as it is such an insightful guide, i LOVE you included a budget breakdown as so many blogs miss that part out! And that you tried couch surfing in Russia – a bold move, but an inspiring outcome!
