The legacy of the Czars is alive in Russia: the spectacular palaces, the expansive and impressive Hermitage, the legendary and intricate Faberge Eggs, and awe-inspiring regal architecture of onion domes and iconic figures. Russia's phenomenal history of the cultural arts is here, too. From the grand and great Bolshoi ballet to the legacy of gifted authors, poets and playwrights; Russia has a deep past and vibrant present. Don't leave without a bowl of borsht.
