thats interesting because you are not the first russina that comes here to ask our opinion about your country, my point is that it could happend with some other country, but not... it happens to be with russia :D im wondering if russians are concerned with foreign idea of their country.
But answering your question my idea is that russia must be a nice country to visit and special if not only the major cities, i bet that with the huge dimension of the country we can have the chance of finding wonderful places, to be honest with you i have no idea of what is russia besides Moscow, thats why i would like to hear more from you, telling us about the nicest places to visit in your country :wink:

In my opinion Russia is a good county :). However real estate is too expensive in lots of cities and traffic jams are awful and seems like there is no solution to this problem.

It's quite understandable. Lots of people at first visit Saint-Petersburg and Moscow as there are plenty of things related to history of Russia.

I don't know why when I first hear about Russia I have this picture in mind of ice and snow and freezing temperature all the time, I hope It's not like that though

Siberia which is a big part of Russia has this type of weather for a half of a year or even longer in the northen parts of it.

I remember an interview with a Czech football player who signed a contract with a football club from Siberia. He acknowledged that before arriving in Russia he had believed that it was always cold in Siberia. Having played one season he changed his opinion.

many people also say that the most attractive thing about Russia is Russian people's character. They are very simple to understand,they don't need much and they are also very easy going. I don't know if it is true;but many people say so. :D

I'm not sure but many people said that Russia is the one of dangerous places in the world. There are many terrorists and frouds. However, some cities are very beautiful. ISN'T IT?
