    The City of the Dead sounds intriguing. From both its history and the current day situation seems like a real winner. Russia in general has much to offer. Surrounded by many Ruskies now here in Bangkok 😉 Signing off from Thailand.

      Ryan, absolutely. Russia has so much to offer. And outside of Moscow and St. Petersburg, everything is really cheap. Yeah, I remember meeting a lot of them during my time in Thailand 😀

    Wow, these photos look beautiful! I’ve never heard about most of these destinations. The Altai Region looks particularly breathtaking. Thanks for sharing these!

      Hi Mel, thank you for your comment. Indeed, there are a lot of amazing, not-so known places in Russia. Altai is one of my personal favorites too.

    Wow! I have always wanted to go to Russia and to be honest, I never really knew where to start! But you’re list is impeccable and some of the images are stunning! Makes me want to go even more. I travel everywhere with my daughter. In your opinion, what’s a good age for a child to go to Russia. Should I wait until she is a teenager? She’s 9 now.

      Hi Amy, thank you for your comment and your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the article. Russia really does have a lot of amazing hidden gems. Well, I think that even if you guys decide to go now it won’t be a bad idea. Just keep in mind that some of the places on this list are freezing during winter! Maybe it’s better to consider a visit during the summer, between May and September. 🙂

    This was really an excellent read! I’ve never been to Russia, and so loved reading about these places. That church is spectacular! Would love to see it for myself.

      I think people tend to overlook just how amazing Russia is. I’m sure there are even more places that even I don’t know about 😀

    I haven’t even been to Russia, let alone heard of any of these places. Lake Baikal is stunning, and I can see myself visiting there. Also, Krasnodar region with the beaches appeals. Always good to read about lesser known places.

    What an interesting list of places to visit! I have yet to visit Russia and I’ve heard of a couple of these before but most are new to me. Dargavs and Yekaterinburg would be at the top of my list.

    That’s a whole bunch of extraordinary places in Russia. Lake Baikal is the most epic. I would surely visit that once in my lifetime. Plus the interesting sites like Dargavs and Lena Pillars making it difficult for me to wait for planning a trip to Russia. I guess I have to do it sooner. Thanks for the share.

    Vladivostok is the only place I’ve heard of before in your list. Still haven’t been to Russia, but riding the Trans-Siberian railway has always been a dream of mine.
