The Top 10 Most Beautiful Places To Visit In Russia Are:
1. Lake Baikal in Irkutsk Oblast

Baikal Lake is the deepest lake in the world (1,637 m), the oldest lake in the world (25 million years) has the largest freshwater supply (more than 20%). The region is home to more than 1,000 plant species and 1500 animal species, and 85% of them can only be found here.
2. Geiger’s Valley in Kamchatka Krai
It is the only geyser region in Eurasia and the second largest in the world. It is about 6 km long and has ninety geysers and hot springs. This valley has also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This breathtaking place is definitely worth visiting, but the problem is that it is very difficult to reach due to being accessible by helicopters.
3. Motherland Monument and Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd Oblast
This place is of great importance to the Russian people: one of the most serious battles of World War II was held here, and Soviet soldiers fought this strategic point heroically and with the German forces. Now, it is a hill, overlooking the city of Volgograd, with the Motherland Call Monument at the top. When the memorial was built in 1967, it was the tallest statue in the world.
