Russia is home to a rich culture of both music and art, and Russian architecture is some of the best you’ll see in the entire world. You just need to watch your step while touring the steppes and here’s a few bits of advice we can offer to make your visit a pleasant one:

1.) Get to know the territory ahead of time. Read some books, check out some sites (you’re already doing that!), watch some travel specials. There are lots of books that talk about best places to visit. If you have Cable TV Packages or a decent internet connection, then you could watch a travel special.

2.) Learn a thing or two about the language. Being fluent in the language isn’t necessary to have a good time, but it can most certainly make things easier going into it. Plus, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to read the menu at restaurants or at least know which lavatory you’re walking into?

3.) Researching the political atmosphere. Not necessarily a problem with Russia, but you do need to be wary of certain parts that might not cater too well to outsiders. Make sure you at least know where your American embassy can be reached.
