Explore Russia

One Country, Many Worlds

Russia, the largest country on earth, is bigger than life. It’s so grand and so diverse that an incomparable range of uniquely Russian experiences is possible in any season. Red Square in a light snowfall, the glowing canals of St. Petersburg under a midnight sunset, the almost tropical transparency of Lake Baikal’s cold waters – these are Russian treasures. Discover the phenomenal range of possibilities with MIR, including riding the rails of the Trans-Siberian Railway.
