The Most Beautiful Places in Russia

Author:

Today is the best day for me to take you tour in one of the biggest country in the world. I’ll take you tour in Russia. Why do I choose Rusia? The first time I never thought that Russia has many beautiful tourism places to visit. Russia is a country which stretches along Eastern Europe and northern Asia. This country has wide about 17.075.400 km ², with this area Russia also called as the largest country in the world. The population in Russia has ranked seventh in the world after China, India, United States, Indonesia, Brazil, and Pakistan. It’s good to remembering us about Soviet Union, because this country was once a largest state in the Soviet Union. From trusted information Russia was inherited 50% of the total population, 2/3 total areas, and approximately 50% of economic assets from The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). After the USSR broke up, Russia became the new country which stands alone and with federalist form (not unitary), but still use communist principles. But this new country now more open than the former (Soviet Union) because the affected of understanding democracy and the movement Glastnost / Openness. Territory and its population much smaller than the USSR and there are new countries around Russia. But now we have to forget the bad memories and always look what happened in the future, right. Actually this country has many beautiful tourism places. I’ll describe below. Curious? Please continue to read……

Mother Motherland monument

Mother Motherland monument (the Russian people called this The Motherland Calls) is the largest statue in Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd. Based on the history this statue has been nominated as the largest and the tallest statue in the world in 1967. From the appearance we can see this statue like a brave woman who held the sword. Motherland monument has height about 85 metres (279 feet). The measuring from the tip of its sword to the top of the plinth. The woman body measures 52 metres (170 feet), and the sword 33 metres (108 feet). There are two hundred steps as the symbol of the 200 days of the Battle of Stalingrad. Who as the sculptor of this amazing statue? Yevgeny Vuchetich and Nikolai Nikitin have big role in creating this statue. Mother Motherland statue is a sculpture that symbolizes the courage and the struggle of women in Russia. Other resources said that this statue in danger because of movement of the foundations. But the local authorities try to make some conservation and restoration. This works have started in 2010.

The Baikal Lake

This lake is located in the south of the Russian region of Siberia (Eastern Siberia). Lake baikal is the world's deepest lake and largest fresh-water tank on Earth. Lake baikal also well known as the world’s oldest and the deepest lake at 30 million years old. Do you know how deep in this lake? Personally, I had never imagined about the deep of this lake. This lake has depth about 1,642 metres (5,387 ft). This lake contains more than 20% of the World's freshwater and more than 90% of Russian freshwater. There are more than 1,700 species of plants and animals over there with amazing scenery. This lake also surrounded by beautiful mountains, meadows, forest, cliffs and wild flowers. One make this tour so amazing is crystal clear water beneath us and the blue of the sky. Lake Baikal was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. We can enjoy all scenery on the water by using a simple kayak and a paddle. What a wonderful moment.

Saint Basil’s Cathedral

Saint Basil’s Cathedral is located in Moscow. This cathedral is also known as the Cathedral of the Protection of the Mother of God ("Theotokos" or "Bogoroditsa"). Saint Basil’s Cathedral was built by Ivan the Terrible (Tzar Ivan IV or Ivan Grozny) between 1554 up to 1561. Based to the legend, this cathedral was designed by an Italian architect who was blinded. And he could never create a more beautiful building. That’s why this cathedral looks so beautiful with vivid color and contains redbrick towers. This cathedral consists of nine chapels completed with individual dome. Eight of the domes make a circular form around the ninth dome. From the top, it’s forming a star. According to Jewish calendar, the number eight is the lucky number. There’s mysterious legend behind this cathedral. French ruler Napoleon wanted to take St. Basil Cathedral back to France. During their attack, the army try to blow up St.Basil by lit up the gun powder. But suddenly a mysterious rain shower prevented the explosions. This is a miracle and many people believe this story. Saint Basil's Cathedral is the most recognizable symbol of Russia. Saint Basil’s Cathedral looks so beautiful at night. I thought some of us have an experience in visiting this cathedral and capturing the beautiful moment.

Peterhof Palace

Actually I have written about this place. You can check my hub with the title “The most beautiful fountain in the world”. Peterhof palace a series of palaces and gardens located Saint Petersburg, Russia. Who is the creator of this palace? Peter the Great was a creator of the Peterhof in 1710. This palace also called “"Russian Versailles”. Peterhof palace is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Peterhof is a brilliant resident of Russian Emperors. Peterhof has a worldwide fame as the capital of fountains. There are series of beautiful fountains around this place. Peterhof is great combination between palaces, parks, collections of statues, fountains and waterfalls. Personally, peterhof is the best architecture building, craftsmen of the fountain and the luxurious French Royal Residence.

Poles of the Komi Republic

This is a part of the seven wonder of Russia. What does Poles of the Komi Republic actually mean?  Poles of the Komi Republic or Seven Strong Men Rock Formations are a set of 7 gigantic stone pillars. Most of these stone abnormally shaped. These stones located in North of the Urals Mountain (Troitsko-Pechorsky District), Komi Republic. No one knows when these stones created, but the scientist estimated the age of these stones is 200 million years. With most of their height around 30 to 42 meters high (140 feet). These monoliths rock formations are very popular in Russia.

Valley of the Geysers

The Valley of the Geysers is located in Kamchattka Peninsula. This is natural phenomenon as the largest concentration of geysers in the world. The Valley of the Geyser was discovered not a long ago, in April 1941. Actually there are over 20 big geysers in the Valley of geysers. Some of these geysers gush forth every 10-12 minutes, while others may erupt once in 4-5 hours. Another spectacular view at this place are incredible colors of slopes, fountains of boiling water, series of hot water, beautiful of grasses and trees create an enchanting spectacle. This place also listed at the UNESCO World Heritage. Many tourists have interested and visit this unique nook of nature. Many of them were surprise and amazement.

Mount Elbrus

Mount Elbrus is located in the western Caucasus mountain range, in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia, Russia, near the border of Georgia. Mount Elbrus is an inactive volcano with altitude around 5,642 metres (18,510 ft) in west summit and 5,621 metres (18,442 ft) in the east summit. This information was taken by Wikipedia.org. This mountain is the highest mountain in Russia. Some people believe that it is also the highest mountain in Europe though there are differing authorities (between Europe and Asia). What can we do here? Many tourists doing several fun activities like skiing and snowboarding. They love to visit this place every year. Some climbers from my country also had conquered and climbed Mount Elbrus. Their success were recorded and it shown on television. I can’t imagine their struggle to conquer the peak of Mount Elbrus with extreme temperatures. I give my thumbs up for them.

Very well done, beautiful pictures of a beautiful country. Thank you for sharing your hub.

Being in Russia quite often, essays like yours remind me of the greatness of the people, their nobility and generosity, and the human tragedy. The country is as big as the heart of their people.

And - yes - the saying is true: In Russia you don´t have roads, you have directions. You don´t have to be far away from the cities to witness. It must be quite cumbersome to get to Mt. Elbrus. That is not like making a Sunday picknick trip around Mt. Rainier, Wa

It must really be something!

All your buttons on this one except funny. Loved this! Thanks and many blessings to you.

This is fabulous read pras. I've been to Russia once, but it wasn't nearly long enough to see everything necessary. My favorite thing was taking a ride in the St. Petersburg underground. It may not have been one of the "most beautiful" of sights, but it was an amazing trip to the center of the earth! Cheers :)

Hi, Chatkath. Thanks for coming to this hub. I am glad you enjoy this hub. Thanks for share your child experience in visiting Russia. I agree with you that Russia has beautiful language. Very rare people want to learn Russian language. Your vote really appreciated. Take care!
