In Russia, we visited Moscow and St Petersburg, both beautiful cities in their own unique ways. I have to mention the weather of Russia, undoubtedly it was freezing. No matter how many layers one wore, the cold managed to get through to your bones in some way or another. Prepare yourselves for image overload!

Ballet is such an elegant form of dance, I enjoyed watching fragments of famous ballets such as Swan Lake, Sheherezada, Corsair and the masterpiece of Russian ballet: The Dying Swan.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing this post, Russia is a beautiful place which you must see at least once in your life. It's full of culture, rich architecture, intriguing history and famous landmarks.
