The Arbat is Moscow's most charming and lively pedestrian street.the Arbat Street is a must-go-to place. You will see here lots of shops where you can buy your souvenirs. The Arbat is today Moscow's liveliest pedestrian street and offers a great choice of street cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs, souvenir stalls, art markets and street entertainers.
Dombai is the tourist and gorgeous mountain scenery, local culture and possibly a view of Mount Elbrus. It is situated in a hollow at the foot of the northern slopes of the Main Caucasian Ridge, 26 km away from Teberda resort, at the height of 1600 meters above the sea level, at the confluence of the rivers Amanauz, Dombai-Ulgen and Alibek.
This is obviously the most famous park in all of Moscow. Here, you will definitely enjoy the rides in the theme park as well as take a leisurely walk along the park's charming pond. During wintertime, you will see here competitions in ice sculpting as well as people skiing across the frozen pond.
Izmailovsky Souvenir Market
Open only at weekends, Izmailovsky Market is a great experience and a fantastic place to stock up on presents for friends and family back home. The market is a god place to sit and relax all entire day out. You'll find art and antique stores, souvenir shops, department stores and outdoor flea markets selling everything.
Peter and Paul Fortress
If you know the history of the Romanovs, then you will surely love this place. This is the resting place of the Romanov Czars. You should also see the church, which is also a tourist attraction.
Red Square of Moscow
A visit to Russia deserves a visit to the Red Square. This is a popular tourist destination in this country. Here, you will find the famous St. Basil's Cathedral as well as the State History Museum, and if these are not enough, you will also see here the Mausoleum of Lenin.
Rostov on Don
Visit the market during grape season and feast. But the most off-putting feature of this city (at least it was a few years ago) are the buses to Stockholm and various other northern locales - secondhand buses from Sweden roam the streets.
The most un-Russian Russian city I've ever been to, Sochi is Russian's very own Florida. Swim in the Black Sea, laze on a rocky beach or get drunk at a seaside bar. Try an ekskursiya to Krasnaya Polyana and up the ski lifts to the top of a mountain.
The Hermitage Museum
Popular tourist destination that is located in Saint Petersburg. If you are an art lover, then this is definitely a place that you must visit, you can find artists like Da Vinci and Rembrandt, Michelangelo and a lot more. You have the option of getting a guided tour where you will get to listen more about the history of the artworks and the artists.
The State Armory
Built as a repository to manufacture and store arms and armors in 16 century, the building turned to be a museum in 1702 by the order of Peter I. Now the museum exhibits treasures gold, silver and jewels as well as medieval arms including armors and helmets.
A must-see just to visit Mamaev Kurgan and sense the immensity of Russia's losses in the Great Patriotic War (WWII). Be prepared for solemnity - it's impossible not to be moved by the statue of Mother Russia.
