MLMT saw something beyond life here, in Russia, and we wish the same to you.
Tie your shoelaces. Brace yourself for what is to come. And jump into the fairy tale. Russia carries in its delicate hands made of porcelain all the magic in the world. Domes are more significant than the universe. Hues made by God himself. Eyes just cannot deal with the pure majesty of Russia in one glance.
Russia is all the writers and musicians can talk about. Russia with the broad landscape diversity inspires all art. Every corner is a new place to conquer. Go to different parts and feel the power that comes with it. There is a lot of expected pandemonium about the situation, but there is one thing everyone talks widely about. Those are the friendly smiles of home walking around in any area.
MLMT saw something beyond life here, and we wish the same to you.

Kaliningrad carries along with it in every corner the lashes of the times that ended, of the times that destroyed all. Even more so than other cities. You witness buildings with stamps of Stalin and Soviet monuments. But it is not a depressing city. The sorrow has been softened by everything they did to come out of that. It is gathered on all sides by overflowing gardens. They have restored a lot of the ruins here.
The most significant reminders of Konigsberg are the Kaliningrad cathedral and the red bricks and the walls and gates of the 17th and 19th century. When the castle was being re-made a four-leveled passage was found right below it. The half-made House of the Soviets built there was left dingy and never used again.

The Kamchatka Peninsula is a dream for most people. It is very, very far off and is 9 hours ahead of Moscow time. The area around the river is a belt of about 160 volcanoes out of which about 25 are active. The beauty of this place also translates to danger. It can only be reached via helicopter, but this is something that is worth it.
We all think our city is the coldest city. But however cold that place is, it is nothing in comparison to this village. This is the coldest inhabited place on the entire planet. The average temperature in the winters is about -50 F. It foes go way lower too.

Everyone talks very highly of this experience. There are a lot of public ones in the cities, but people prefer to have private ones. This is a Russian sauna or bath that everyone must visit. The thing people love is coming out after the experience and having a cup of steaming tea.
Visit Patriot Park which is a unique Russian theme park created to give the entire family, including the children an idea about the army. They could dine on rations, play with fake artillery and collect souvenirs. The aim of this would be to create a connect of the military with the common mass.
Russia is a country controlled by political opinions and problems. They have always been at the top of the war chain. Do not talk about Putin or Trump or any other thing you are asked about. You can never know how opinion could harm you here.
Russians are the vodka drinkers. Very few people can actually drink like that. If the alcohol is getting too much for you, don’t continue to drain your glasses. Leave some in the glass. This indicates that you do not want any more vodka.
It can get scorching here in Russia. You are going to want to wear these, but you need to stay away from sandals and flip-flops. The locals see this as an indication of bad taste. They will stare for sure. They might even stop and take pictures and snigger at your choice.
First class is too expensive with two people in a cabin. The second option is a four people seating arrangement and is not the right one for you. This is usually filled with a shadier, boozy crowd. The third is open seating with 54 births. This is where most families go. Hence, a safe option.
