OVERVIEW

The world's largest and perhaps least understood country definitely deserves the visit of any adventurous person.

While people often refer to the country simply as Russia, it's actually the Russian Federation - taking in over 100 different nationalities and languages, including Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist population. Everything exists here on an inhuman scale, whether it's Moscow's vast eight-lane highways or the endless flat scenery of the Russian steppe. 

HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

Medical staff is adequately trained. All citizens are entitled by the law to the equal access to the healthcare. The healthcare is free and available to all citizens and registered long-term residents. Private healthcare is also available in the country.

MEDICAL EDUCATION
Education in medical school takes 6 years. After finals a student obtains a diploma. Afterwards, every postgraduate student could accomplish 1 or 2 years of postgraduate education (residency) in chosen speciality. During this time residents work under the supervision of a doctor, attends seminars and lectures, performes clinical or laboratory work and get no salary. After 1 or 2 years of education a student has to pass final exam in order to obtain doctor's certificate. One is able to work as a doctor only when certificate is obtained. 
TRANSPORTATION
We have a wide net of railway and air transportation that provides connection within the country and abroad. Each city has it's own system of public transportation, usually presented by buses, trams and trolleybuses. In bigger cities we have metro. We also have regular trains.

SOCIAL PROGRAM
Most Russian cities have social lives comparable to New York City’s. In regard to the arts, Russia has always occupied a prominent spot on the world scene. The Bolshoi Theater and Pushkin Art Gallery in Moscow, the Mariinsky Theater and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg – these are considered to be some of the best art institutions in the world. In St. Petersburg alone there are 2,000 libraries, 221 museums, 80 theaters, 100 concert halls, 45 art galleries, 62 movie theaters, and 80 nightclubs, and over 100 concerts, shows and festivals each year. If that isn’t enough to occupy your time, Russians place great importance on friends and family, resulting in anniversary and birthday celebrations that will blow you away.

Territories of our country are endless and there are thousands of beautifull places, but if you gonna come to Russia there are some TOP 10 places to see: 

1. Moscow - the capital must been seen in any country;
2. Saint Petersburg - 2nd capital, "Nothern Palmyra";
3. Kazan - ancient city of unique confluence of orthodox and muslim cultures;
4. Golden Ring tour - if you wish to experience the calm, beauty and profundity of the Russian faith you should go on tour around cities which geographically situated in a circle or "ring" and are famouse for their unique monasteries and churches of the 12th-17th centuries, these cities have rather poetic names: Sergiyev Posad, Alexandrov, Kostroma, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Uglich, Ivanovo, Yaroslavl, Rostov Veliky, Suzdal and Vladimir;
5. City of Veliky Novgorod - city called "museum of architecture";
6. Volga cruise - enjoy the beauty and energy of one of the most famouse rivers;
7. Lake Baikal – the pearl of Siberia;
8. Ekaterinburg – traditional churches and Soviet avant-garde;
9. Sochi – health resort on the Black seashore and the Olympic capital;
10. Trans-Siberian Railway - You need strong nerves to go on a train journey around Eurasia. Not everyone can spend almost a week in an enclosed space on wheels. However, those brave souls who do make the journey are rewarded by seeing 80 cities, the Volga River, Ural Mountains, Baraba steppe with its ominous clouds, Yenisei River, Barguzinsky Mountains, the woods of Siberia, Khekhtsir Range and Lake Baikal. Your journey will leave you with vivid memories, while the constant motion of the train will stay with you for days after. 

 

 

 

CULTURAL DIFFERENCES
The national character of Russian people is very controversial. Only Russian can hope for the best but always prepare for the worst. Be prepared to Russia - a country of contrasts.
