A to Z Challenge: R

Hello Everyone, 

Now, this is not one to be visiting any time soon (at least not with the current governmental leader), but I really really want to visit Russia. One of the my most memorable films from my childhood was Anastasia, the story of the lost Russian princess. After learning about the Russian revolution for Standard Grade history, it reminded me of the exciting places to see in Russia. It is the biggest country in the world, spanning two continents, with nine different time zones! Why would you not want to see it? There is so much diversity in the landscape, and the cities are so full of things to do and see. Moscow and St Petersburg are the biggest and most politically and historically important cities. The Russian revolution and the Communist government is one of the biggest historical events in recent history. Also, who wouldn't want to see the place where Rasputin was murdered? It is an event that so much is known about, but nobody has any idea about what really happened.
