The climate of Russia is variable, with his incredible extension can’t be different. The climate can be divided in four zones, first is the polar climate and it cover the northeast strip along the north coast and the far east. Second is sub-arctic climate, is characterized by taiga and it cover mostly of wild Russia and the north of European Russia. The third is the humid continental climate that cover all the remain territory. Fourth the typical climate of coast of Black Sea. So you can pass from the regular -50 of arctic region to the 20 ( but even much more) of continental region

Economy

With the huge natural resources have, Russia have an economy very developed. Natural resource are petroleum, natural gas, metals and wood, they value the 80% of Russian export. Agriculture is another important sector, a good vision of the Govern has permitted the growing quick of the agriculture and became from great importer of wheat to be the firsth exporter. Other sectors are industry, defense, cars, transportation. The tourism is in great expansion, Moscow and St. Petersburgh are the two first visited places from the classic cultural tourism. The natural tourism is actually concentrate in the Lake Baikal that is the ancientest and deep lake of the world in a land with mountains of taiga covered. Anyway the wildlife tourism is growing, the new media and advertisement help tourists to discover even other parts very very nice. I want to remember the North Russia and specially the Siberia are composed by immense expanses of taiga, is ascertained that there ase many places in Siberia where never man has been.

Safety:

Is necessary to stay far from the regions where there are conflicts, specially the separatist republics, so we invite you to consult the dedicated office in your country when you plan the travel. Other places are not different from a common European Capital city. About the remote and wild Russia regions is necessary to adopt all the necessary precaution, included the satellite phone, and remember specially the arctic region is very cold and the electronic apparels have a big problem with the batteries.

religion

Christian included catholic are the 62% of population, while the agnostic atheist and without religion are the 32%, the remaining percentage is very fragmented other ideas.

Wild Russia

Is necessary to say some numbers before to talk about the Russian wildlife because sometime is not enough to say Russia is huge, the north row that arrive to the far east across 12 time zone!! half world circumference at that latitude, yes is huge and now you understand how much.
Beyond the north row their is the territory of Siberia up to the far east, so if in the north raw is tundra the remaining is taiga. Taiga is the biggest forest of the world, some numbers: taiga is covering 5,000,000 square kilometers and is the 23% of the world’s forests!!
Russian Federation have published the Red Data Book, where are listed all the species of flora and fauna threatened, in totally are 266 mammal species and 780 bird species plus flora.[wp_bannerize group=”inarticle”]
Animals of tundra and taiga are many, and someone are very special, so very special that they risk extinction, one is the amur leopard, 30 specimens only remain, and Caspian tiger there has 500 only.
Another special animal is the reindeer, I know you are asking why, again we leave the numbers to explain, the population of reindeer is estimated in 5.000.000, it is a very big number.
Other animals of wild Russia we list now, and this list even if is not very long, will explain why the  Russia’s wildlife  is so special: reindeer, Lemmings, Arctic

About wildlife we told, now is time for wild land, there is no doubt, Russia is wild land, if in the large continental and south part is nott too cold, in the north raw ans Siberia the climate is severe, is so severe which there is even the “Pole of Cold”. The “Pole of Cold” is the in Yacutia region and is composed by 2 villages that are Verkhoyansk and another village that we dedicated a nice post, Oymyakon . The numbers are impressive again , in Verkhoyansk on January 15, 1885, a temperature of −67.8 °C was recorded, then in Oymyakon weather station on 1924, a temperature of −71.2 °C was recorded. There are some discussion about this second measurement because the weather station is located at 750 mt of altitude but the data in absolute terms remain incredible.
So visit wild Russia but don’t forget the wool hat and whom gloves!![wp_bannerize group=”inarticle”]
