We were in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Volgograd, as far as venue cities. We also went to Lake Baikal (Olkhon Island) and the Caucasus Mountains (Mt. Elbrus region). We had a great time and we particularly enjoyed the natural places, Lake Baikal and the Caucasus. People were very friendly in the small towns and we saw mostly only Russian tourists. It would be great to hear about other places people visited and their experiences there. I am sure many of you have some great stories to tell.
