Map of Russia


The official language is Russian. Very few people can understand and speak English.


The current population of Russia is around 146 million. Russia ranks 9th in the list of countries by population.

Cost of Living

Food and accommodation are affordable and much lower than other destinations.


Russian Ruble (RUB) is the official currency. The exchange rate varies in the range of 0.95-0.97 INR


The most well-known feature of the Russian climate is its very cold winter, brought about by the country’s high latitudes (40-75°N), vast landmass, and lack of any topographic obstructions to protect it from arctic winds sweeping across its long, north-facing and often frozen coastline.

It is bounded by high mountains along its southern and eastern flank but the west is exposed to occasional winter incursions of milder Atlantic air, so that winters become progressively more severe eastwards.

The extreme continental nature of the Russian climate means that the difference between mid-winter and mid-summer monthly mean temperature is large and typically at least 30°C, so that summers are warm even, for a short time, within the Arctic Circle.

Its transition from winter to summer and from summer back to winter is very quick so effectively there are only 2 seasons over most of Russia.

Average January monthly temperatures vary between 0 and -5°C (Northern Caucasus) and between –40 and -50°C (Republic Saha, Yakutia) where the minimal temperatures reach -65-70°С. Average monthly temperatures of July vary from 1°C at the northern coast of Siberia to 24-25°C in Prikaspijskaya lowland.
