Russia ... Russian Federation (Росси́йская Федерация, Rossiyskaya Federatsiya)), is a country that stretches over a vast expanse of Asia and Europe. With an area of 17,075,400 km², Russia is the largest country in the world, covering almost twice the territory of the next-largest country, Canada, and has significant mineral and energy resources. Russia has the world's eighth-largest population. Russia shares land borders with the following countries (counter-clockwise from northwest to southeast): Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It is also close to the United States, Sweden, and Japan across relatively small stretches of water (the Bering Strait, the Baltic Sea, and La Pérouse Strait, respectively)."
Newest Review: ... Prime. I have a colleague who will be joining me for the trade show and he is bringing the marketing collateral with him, but he isn?t arriving until late tonight so I am at a bit of a loose end. There is no wireless network in the hotel which is now a greater defect than no hot water. Unable to connect to work, I decide to get out and see a bit of the town. I ... more

It?s my first visit to Russia and frankly I am a little bit nervous about it. Over the past few months I have had several business trips in Eastern Europe. I have partied in Prague, boogied in Budapest and wowed the crowd in Warsaw. But still, something about my trip to Moscow has me a little anxious. They keep teasing me in the office about the women I will meet. Where I live, Russian women are stereotyped as peroxide prostitutes.

The biggest fun you can get in Russia when your close is on is to discover the russian culture by drinking vodka, which includes: to enjoy the Russian food, to go somewhere to the nature to make some Shashlik (wild-grilled pork’s meat), to enjoy the russian hospitality at somebody’s kitchen and singing Russian songs (that’s in the evening when you can’t drink any more and decided that it’s better to sing and so they will think that you are so charmed by Russian folklore and that it’s better not to interrupt you with an offer to drink 100 grams more).

Last year I was lucky enough to go to Russia with my school for a week and although we were probably fairly sheltered to real goings on in Russia, I think we got our fair share of what it's really like. We spent half the week in Moscow and half the week in St Petersburg and my views on these places are divided. Moscow has quite a lot to see and we found plenty to do but the people there are incredibly abrupt. They were very hostile towards us and they never seemed to want to help (I'm not saying all people from Moscow are like this, just those that we came across.) We went to see Lenin's body which certainly was an experience and it was one of the most ... Read the complete review
