With its vast expanse across the northern hemisphere, it’s no surprise that Russia is geographically the largest country in the world. With so much land to explore, car hire in Russia is a good option to make the most of your time in the country. Moscow is a must on your trip, the impressive architecture alone is enough reason to visit. Ballet is a big part of the culture, with the Mariinsky Ballet school (Kirov Ballet) in St Petersburg being internationally renowned for its dancers and still active today, almost 275 years after it was founded. If you’re hiring a car in Russia, head out to the overwhelming Tsarskoe Selo Catherine Palace, set in St Petersburg’s Aleksandrovsky Park.
