Russia, the world's largest country, obviously defies a "brief description," as it covers 9 time zones, all climate zones except tropical, with land that stretches almost halfway around the planet .Russia has over 1,000 major cities, 16 of which have a metro population of more than one million; the most populated cities are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod.moscow, the capital, with over 12 million (metro) residents, is the country's major economic and political center - the seat of the President, the government and the State Duma.
The mineral-packed Ural Mountains and the vast oil, gas, coal, and timber reserves of Siberia and the Russian Far East make Russia rich in natural resources, which dominate Russian exports. Oil and gas exports, specifically, continue to be the main source of hard currency.
There are two kinds of higher education in the Russian Federation:
non-university level higher education (educational programmes not leading to academic degrees);
university level higher education (educational programmes leading to academic degrees).
Educational institutions for non-university level higher education are generally known as Tehnikums or Uchilishcha.
According to the Standard Statute for University Level Higher Education Establishments adopted by the Government of the Russian Federation on 26 June 1993 and based on the Law On Education, higher education in the country is built upon the following typology of establishments:
Universities: higher education institutions the activities of which are aimed at the development of education, science, and culture through the conducting of fundamental and applied research and the offering of training programmes at all levels of higher, postgraduate, and continuing education in a wide range of natural and social sciences and the humanities. A university must be the leading research and methodological centre in the areas of its activity. Universities are now subdivided into the following groups:
Universities for Humanities and Sciences;
Pedagogical Universities (former Pedagogical Institutes);
Medical Universities (former Medical Institutes);
Agricultural Universities (former Agricultural Institutes);
Technical Universities (former Polytechnic and Specialized Institutes);
Russia, the world’s largest nation, borders European and Asian countries as well as the Pacific and Arctic oceans. Its landscape ranges from tundra and forests to subtropical beaches. It’s famous for Moscow's Bolshoi and St.
Petersburg's Mariinsky ballet companies. St. Petersburg, founded by Russian leader Peter the Great, has the baroque Winter Palace, now housing part of the State Hermitage Museum’s art collection.
the climate of Russia can be described as highly continental influenced climate with warm to hot dry summers and (very) cold winters with temperatures of -30°C and lower and sometimes heavy snowfall. sometimes very strong easterly winds, called Buran can occur, bringing freezing cold temperatures and snowstorms.
Varies due to the region you want to visit. Heavyweight clothing is needed for the winter, no matter where you go. waterproof light- to mediumweight is advised for the summer. Be prepared for extreme conditions in the northern and northeastern parts of Siberia in the winter; the temperatures there are the lowest in the world, expecting the Antarctic Continent.
