Here the ornate domes of St Basil’s Cathedral and the Church of Our Saviour’s Blood rise above the busy streets, and the Armoury in the Kremlin and the Hermitage in the Winter Palace house incredible collections of art. To the east of the Ural Mountains lies Siberia, a seemingly endless expanse of wild landscape.
