If you come for a short while, you have to choose whether to see the sublime Moscow monasteries, old mansions and museum collections, walk along the Arbat, or to have a good look at the Stalin’s high-rises.

Some people come to relax and to be one on one with nature, others come for extreme sport: to conquer the mountain peaks or for white-water rafting. Many tourists come to Siberia in order to build up health: to bathe in the healing springs, and to taste ecologically healthy Siberian cuisine.

Hunters and fishermen especially admire Siberia: a huge number of rare species of fish inhabit just here, in clean transparent water.
