Any person had to travel at least once in their life. There are those who do it regularly. Despite the high service of foreign tourism, many Russians are faced with the question of where to relax on the New Year? Will it be a vacation by the sea or at one of the Russian ski resorts?
It will be interesting to visit Lake Baikal in winter , the deepest and largest in terms of fresh water. The main feature of the Baikal winter is as if glass ice, playing in the sun. Its incredible transparency is so attractive that it is impossible to resist the desire to see what is happening there, under the mirror surface. And experience the incredible sensations of how large and small fish swim under the ice. This is a unique place, as only here you can admire the beauty, while avoiding a large number of tourists.
Domestic tourism is becoming more popular every year. Its huge advantage is that it does not require a passport and visa, which take a lot of effort, time and money. Winter in Russia is already an attraction that hundreds of thousands of tourists from all over the world come to see. And it is no coincidence, because it is in the Russian expanses that you can see the mesmerizing northern lights, ride dog sleds, fast snowmobiles and, of course, the famous Russian troikas.
Fans of extreme relaxation and adrenaline in their blood should visit Elbrus, which is included in the list of the highest peaks of the planet. Once at the very peak of the mountain peak of Russia and Europe, you can enjoy the power of the majestic landscapes that will be remembered for a lifetime. You do not need to be a professional for this, it is enough to be in good physical shape and have an experienced guide, together with whom you can achieve this goal.
Those who have visited the largest ski resort in Krasnaya Polyana at least once return there again and not only in winter, because the popularity of this resort is growing every year. In winter, the mild climate, moderate temperatures and the moisture-laden sea air make for a fantastic glide experience.

An equally attractive place where you can relax with the whole family and which will not leave indifferent even the most demanding tourist is Karelia. Of course, she is always beautiful, at any time of the year, but especially in winter. Cozy wooden houses will warm you up. And over a cup of aromatic tea, you can enjoy communication with loved ones, away from the bustle of the city. Fans of Husky dogs will be able not only to make an attractive selfie as a souvenir, but also to ride a dog sled with a breeze and feel like the hero of the film “White Captivity”.
And of course, it is impossible not to tell about where the fairy tale begins for everyone: for both the child and the adult – Veliky Ustyug. A huge number of tourists visit it every year. And this is no coincidence, because it is there that the fairy tale becomes reality and even the air seems to be filled with magic.
