A Tour of Russia’s Greatest Cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg and Murmansk (Video)

Russia is the largest country in the world, so much so that its borders extend from north Asia all the way to eastern Europe. In fact, the country is so big that its territory alone covers almost one-eighth of the world’s inhabited area.

That’s why it’s no surprise that the largest country in the world almost has it all, from century-old architectures, historic cities, unspoiled countryside to some of the most interesting culture around.

Join me as we uncover the rich history and the beautiful cities of Moscow, St. Petersburg and the northernmost city in the arctic circle, Murmansk.

MOSCOW: A Tour of the Iconic Red Square and Kremlin

SNY04402

Moscow is the capital and the biggest city in Russia. It is a major political, economic and cultural center for Russia and Europe because it’s also the largest city in the entire European continent.

The megacity is famous for its unique architecture; but mainly it’s most famous building such as the Kremlin, the Red Square, and the world-renowned Saint Basils Cathedral.

Two of the most iconic structures in Russia and the perfect symbol of Russia’s historically rich and intriguing past.

ST. PETERSBURG: The Greatest City in Russia


Peter 8

St. Petersburg is a city in Russia that was founded by Russian Emperor Peter I the Great as Russia’s “Window to Europe.” A beautiful city with an amazing history and an artistic culture to match.

The city of St. Petersburg is only 2nd to Moscow in terms of size and sheer scale, but after touring both cities, I find that St. Petersburg has greater things to offer compared to Moscow.

Find out why the country’s cultural heart and the old capital of the Russian empire became my favorite city.

MURMANSK: The Northernmost City in the Arctic Circle.

Murman 4

Not everyone can say that they’ve traveled to the top of the world, but if you’re in Russia, then you’ve got a better chance than most.

Located in the far north of Russia, Murmansk experiences extremely cold and long winters that last most of the year, a literal definition of a winter wonderland.

A place where even the Trans-Siberian rail ends, Murmansk is a feat by itself. A perfectly livable city with a fascinating history and beautiful nature to match.

What is the perfect paradise? For me, it’s an island with everything you need within arm’s reach. A place where you don’t have to travel far and sacrifice your comfort. A remote and beautiful destination with all the modern amenities that you’ll ever need.

Say hello to Lakawon Island Resort & Spa (also called Llacaon), a 13-hectare banana-shaped island off the coast of Cadiz in Negros Occidental.

It’s a world-class beach resort famous for its pristine white sand, crystal clear waters, and the famous TawHai–Asia’s largest floating bar.
