The world’s largest country, Russia stands out among the rest only for its size, but also for its troubled past, its current political climate, its vast array of geographical extremes, and for its mystery. Shrouded behind decades of communism and the remnants of the Cold War, the Western world has still not managed to get a glimpse of anything more than the tiniest part of this massive country. Siberia, vodka, and the headquarters of communism for many years, Russia is a country that hides a great number of mysteries and miracles behind its veil, just waiting to be discovered in the 21st century.
