The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.

The newest update to Masha Nordbye’s beautiful guide to the two capitals and the Golden Ring is also welcome. Nordbye has written for Russian Life, so are not unbiased. Still, it bears stating that this is one of the finest, most personal guides to Russia currently available. There is stunning photography, excellent cartography and well-chosen literary extracts. If the design is less flashy than National Geographic or Dorling Kindersley, that’s OK. This, after all, is a travel guide for readers.
