Given the exchange rate and the current situation, travelling around Russia is becoming more and more preferable. Especially since all the most interesting things are literally a stone's throw away, and these sights do not lose their relevance even in the winter cold. This route is for those who are keen on technology and engineering, industrial tourism and extreme sports. Ruins of old factories, car museums, hydroelectric power stations, lighthouses, and also parachuting, quad biking and wakeboarding (yes, in winter!) are a great option for a leisurely weekend!
