The Golden Ring of Russian cities is also popular; however few people know that there are a lot of attractions in any historical Russian city.

The pearls of Russian architecture are: Transfiguration church in Kizhi Pogost, the Solovetsky Islands, and well-known Peterhof and the Kremlin of Moscow.

Also Russia has a lot of sights of other nationalities and various religions: Lala Tulpan, The Golden Abode of the Buddha Shakyamuni, Qol Sharif, “The Heart of Chechnya” Mosque, Ivolginsky Datsan, and these places are not even a fourth part of such sights!

Pilgrimage tourism is rapidly developing in Russia, travelers strive to visit places connected with their religion; often the purpose of pilgrimage is adoration of saints. The main centers of such tourism are: Balaam, monasteries of Sviyazhsk, The Virgin Monastery of Raifa, Stolobny Island, Belogorsky Convent and many other places; all in all there are about 28 thousands of churches in Russia and about 740 monasteries and convents.
