The territory of Russia is not simply big, it is gargantuan. It is 1.8 times the size of the United States and an impressive 70 times the size of Great Britain. Russia’s climate, landscape, flora and fauna variety is unprecedented. It is one of the very few countries big enough to allow seemingly incompatible things to coexist: permafrost and active volcanoes, temperatures of minus 70 and plus 43 degrees, polar bears and camels. Another astonishing, though expected fact is that a country of this size is one of the most multinational and diverse in the world. Its 150 million citizens of 160 different nationalities belong to some seventy different religions. The history of Russia too is a vast subject. Like a good library it has stories to fit any mood or taste – from heavy drama to plenty of light reading.
Catherine the Great, an Empress of Russia famous for making four mistakes in a three letter word, once said: “Russia is not a country, it’s a Universe, so many climates there are, so many peoples, languages, dispositions and beliefs.”
