The vast majority of tourists who travel to Russia visit Moscow and St. Petersburg (and the suburbs of these cities), which account for around 90% of tourist traffic. This percentage also includes all those who visit the Golden Ring of Russia northeast of Moscow.
After these two big cities, other highlights are the Trans-Siberian Railway and the trip to Lake Baikal made by some 3-5% of tourists who go to Russia. The remaining tourist destinations, such as Kamchatka or Altai, are a long distance away. These are attractive destinations but for more adventurous travellers.
