Russia

4.7
Since the lifting of the "Iron Curtain," a long feared-and-revered Russia started to attract more travelers from beyond its borders. From watching ballet at Bolshoi Theatre to climbing aboard Cruiser Aurora, a training ship from the Great October Socialist Revolution, tourists have plenty of things to do in Russia. Travelers interested in Russia's historical and cultural legacy should visit Moscow Kremlin and State Hermitage Museum, while adventure seekers must ride the Trans-Siberian Railway. To spend a fun day with the family, visit the Disneyland-style fantasy at Divo Ostrov or do it like the Russians do and play with grenade launchers at Patriot Park, Russia's "military Disneyland."
