Despite the dismemberment of ex Soviet Union (1991), Russia is the bigger nation of the world (17 millions of Kmq, that is almost the double of United States); it includes big part of the eastern Europe and all the northern strip of the Asiatic continent, from the Ural Mountains up to Peninsula of the Kamcatka and to the Kuril Islands.
The territory presents a big variety of geographic landscapes, with long rich of water rivers and very wide lakes, both in Europe (Ladoga and Onega) and Asia (Bajkal and Caspian Sea, many conutries overlook on it).
The climate is everywhere definitely continental, with hot summers and above all very cold and very long winters, that have always conditioned the Russian life and history.
From the "October Revolution" (1917), that took to the pulling down of the czarist regime, replaced by the Leninist socialist regime, up to beginning of the years '90, Russia was governed with stiff communist princes, that limited the economic development of the nation for long.
With the constitution of 1993 a federal presidential Republic was set up, that took a wind of news, free market, partial privatization and westernization of the nation.
Despite that, the immense charm of Moscow and St. Petersburg, two town completely different between of theirs, remain unchanged.
