Officially confirmed: the largest forestsare in Russia. There is the smallest sea in the world, but it is perhaps themost dangerous one. And marshes - the largest in the world, with many kinds ofliving creatures inhabiting them: running, swimming and flying. And the lake,the beauty with which not everything can be compared.

And the most amazing in Russia are people - in one city, forexample, they manage to live in -70 ° C temperature. Lower down arrow to thesouth – there is the largest lake in the world, it is called as a sea for itssize. In the east - the shamans, our contemporaries, beat the drum and speakwith spirits, and away there are geysers watering out of the ground and smokingvolcanoes. In the west - an enclave with unique nature: sand singing dunes,dancing forest, wild boars and migratory birds, which rest on a narrow strip ofland in the spring and in autumn. From the one side here is a sea, on the other- fresh water bay.

But the most amazing thing is that in all these places you maybe literally tomorrow. And maybe even today. No need to run to the visa center,phone agencies and renew a passport.
