Why to Use Travel Agency Services When Traveling to Russia

Russia is a beautiful, unique, and enormous country. It is difficult to choose from the wide selection of diverse Russian itineraries.

The astounding vastness of the country, its exceptional culture, history and originality provide lots of opportunities for travelers to explore a variety of destinations and attractions.

Have you ever thought about visiting the cultural capital St Petersburg, or lively and luminous Moscow? Or maybe you have always dreamed of exploring Lake Baikal and its picturesque nature?

Have you ever thought about the amazing region around Kazan, the so-called “third Russian capital” and the city where the 2013 Summer Universiade was held? Or have you wanted to visit Sochi where the 2014 Olympic Games took place?

All of these are good ideas for your next holiday. Russia is a country where you will meet friendly people and explore beautiful nature.

But it is also a land of contrasts – from the boundless Steppes of western Russia, you move slowly to the extreme continental area of Siberia with humming Taiga forests, world famous Lake Baikal and completely different landscapes; the eastern part of Russia will amaze you with Far Eastern charm and cities that are recognized as advanced special economic zones.

Will you be able to explore any of these destinations by yourself? Yes.

Will your trip be easy to arrange by yourself? No.

Remember: Russia is extraordinary. It doesn’t compare with any other destination you have ever considered visiting.

You should carefully prepare for your trip to this country and attentively research information about Russian mentality, customs, and traditions – as well as hidden treasures along your planned itinerary.

You also need to learn about administrative procedures regarding visas, migration, tourist registration, and lots of other issues.

Those who have explored Russia on their own can give you plenty of useful tips and share important information. But, it is almost always more practical to use the services of a Travel Agent for such a trip.
