I would put in first place the Dolomite Alps in Italy. I think everyone would love that place. And a trip there is a perfect price/spectacular views/advanced infrastructure/tasty food/difficult to get to, etc. combination.

I want to go everywhere, but everything takes money and time, to have money you have to work and spend time, in the end you have money but no time

Ekaterina Kolosova

I have been to two of the places on the list, in September I plan to visit another one of this top.

But I would also include the mountains in Barcelona.

At least half of the places I would have time to visit in my lifetime!

The Sinai Mountains, Egypt, very beautiful.

Japan, China, Korea

Hello, I have a lot of questions. If anyone knows the answers to them, please write, because I do not know who better to ask than the subscribers of TJ:)

I want to get a Schengen visa to travel to Europe, before that I was only in a few countries where you do not need a visa. Schengen was not. I want to travel with couchsurfing, but it seems to require hotel confirmations etc. for visa approval. What to do in these cases? No one from couchsurfing will write me a letter of invitation, etc. What is the best way to do it?

2. I read that most often approve in Finland, looking for consulates saw that there are only a couple of pieces of rossii and that is where I do not live. The rest are visa centers, but as far as I understand it costs 8000 and plus another fee of 3300.

I want to apply only for a fee of 3300, is it possible? Not issuing if in the visa center.

3. How much does it cost to get a visa from scratch? As far as I have understood it is a fee of 3300 and I need the insurance, suppose it is bought in Tinkoff for 1000-3000 somewhere and that is it?

4. Can I get a visa for a longer period of time at once at the first attempt? I want to go to Finland and from there to other countries, also by couchsurfing, is it possible? Then, say, go to Russia and then back in a few months to go to Germany, say, already on a visa, which I did in Finland.

10 places in Russia, which are great for vacation in 2022

Rarely in what country can you find such a variety of climates as in Russia – from the harsh beauty of the northern White Sea to the subtropical forests of the Krasnodar region. There is a vacation for every taste – from hiking through the wild Caucasus mountains to a comfortable holiday in a well-appointed sanatorium.

Here are the top 10 places in Russia, where you can go or fly to rest in the summer of 2022 – for the benefit of body, soul and wallet.

Carthage - the most famous ancient city on the Mediterranean Sea

10. Solovetsky Islands

One of the most popular tourist destinations for those who like to combine leisure with learning new things. Severe and beautiful northern nature, where everything breathes with the peace and wisdom of centuries, the tragic history of these places, the ancient architecture of Solovetsky monastery – everything puts you in a contemplative and thoughtful mood.

The white nights – from June till early August the sun almost never sets – add particular beauty and mystery to the ancient monastery. You can admire the northern fauna – there live seals, hares and foxes. But along with the seals and the gloomy beauty of northern nature, tourists are welcomed by less pleasant locals – hordes of hungry and man-eating mosquitoes. So be sure to take with you repellents, both on your body and clothes, and for overnight stays in the rooms.

9. Seliger

Seliger”, in a nutshell, hides a whole network of lakes, rivers, creeks and their connecting streams. Not only that, several large islands of the central lake have their own bodies of water! This place is just perfect for water lovers – fishing, rafting, catamaran rides, windsurfing and even diving.

Ever since Soviet times the forest groves with quiet rivers or a giant mirror of water “Ostashkov Sea” attracted tourists from all over Russia – to taste camping romance, sing songs by the fire, get steamed in a forest banya… And if you do not want to sleep in a tent, the banks of water bodies of the Seliger densely studded with tourist bases, ladders cottages and holiday homes.

8. St. Petersburg

It is a natural phenomenon, typical for the northern regions of Russia, when the sun doesn’t set and the nights are transparent light twilight instead of the blackness to which we are accustomed.

In summer, the cultural program of Russia’s most cultural city is saturated to the maximum – both during daylight hours and at night. Festivals, music festivals, concerts indoors and outdoors, guided tours through ancient parks, visits to museums and memorial sites and, of course, the famous drawbridges, which every evening gently rise to the sky and let the important parade on the water surface of the court. On May 27 the city celebrates its birthday, the festival “Scarlet Sails” is dedicated to school leavers, and from 9 to 12 July there will be a festival of the Mariinsky Theater “The Stars of the White Nights.

7. The Black Sea

The southern coast of the Black Sea is a favorite destination for tourists from all over Russia. In summer the water there is a pleasant warmth for a body suffering from the winter; in some areas of the Black Sea its temperature reaches 28°.

The beach season in Krasnodar Krai begins in early June (although some hardened northerners dare to take a dip as early as May). According to unofficial information 20 million people come here every year! Of course, the tourist infrastructure is five stars here: there are luxurious resorts for the owners of chubby wallets, and there are more budget places. Adler is good for children – the sea here is shallow and warm.

10 sights of Varese, Italy

For fans of wildlife I recommend Gelendzhik, with its wooded mountains and sparkling in the sun waterfalls.

And those who are going in summer to go on vacation with children, Evpatoria with a lot of entertainment (dolphinarium, museum of pirates of the Black Sea, water park, etc.) or Sudak with its sandy-pebbly beaches.

6. Caspian Sea

Caspian Sea in the summer is warm – the water temperature can reach 28 ° C. And the rest on its coast is even cheaper than the Azov. True, the infrastructure is lagging and the beaches leave much to be desired – the level of Feodosia, with the smallest white sand, there is hardly meet.

But it is more than compensated by the sea, exotic rest (it is possible to boast before friends and colleagues), the wild and fine nature and magnificent fishing. It is impossible to catch Caspian sturgeon – there is a moratorium on it – but the abundance of other fish will more than compensate for this loss. Laganj is especially popular among fishermen, and those who prefer beach rest should pay attention to Derbent and Makhachkala.

5. Karelia

Karelia is one of the most beautiful regions of Russia and a popular vacation destination. The majestic northern nature, clear lakes, white chalk cliffs, contrasting beautifully with the dark green pine forests, and many monuments of the past, leading up to the settlement of these places by primitive people.

Here is the island of Kizhi, where monuments of wooden art are collected from all over Russia and carefully recreated. The Kivach waterfall is one of the most beautiful and second largest waterfalls in Europe. There is also the ancient island of Valaam, which is surrounded by a web of islands (more than fifty of them!). Onega Lake is popular with the fans of yachting, plenty of forest tourist centers and sanatoriums for connoisseurs of fresh forest air and three meals a day, and you can improve your health on Marcial Waters – the first Russian resort, opened by Peter I.

4. Caucasian mineral waters

Do you want to have a rest and recover bodily? I suggest to go to the sanatoriums of Caucasian mineral waters – there are four of them. Essentuki is famous all over Russia for its healing mineral waters, Kislovodsk was loved by the Tsar’s family, and in Pyatigorsk and Zheleznovodsk you can find a resort for every taste.

Germany's Top 10 Festivals

There are also relict oak and lime forests, climate resembling the resorts of the Swiss Alps, ancient architecture at every step, unique calcium mineral water, which is found nowhere else in the world, and much, much more.

3. Kabardino-Balkaria

Rest in the North Caucasus will suit the taste of those who like a measured and predictable mode of the day, with sunbathing and drinking drinks on the terrace in the evening, and those who like adventure. Just on the border with Karachay-Cherkessia rises Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe. I don’t suggest climbing it at once, it’s suitable for experienced climbers, but trekking routes of Dombaj and Arkhiz are available even for beginners.

These places are marvelous with dense subtropical forests, mountain meadow-grass, clear cut streams and lakes. More than one generation of Soviet-Russian rafters descended the Belaya River. There are also regular gastronomic tours, where Northerners are introduced to the cuisine of the North Caucasus.

2. Altai

Altai is often compared to Switzerland – lakes with crystal clear water, thick forests, fresh air filled with aromas of herbs and flowers.

Mount Belukha is a favorite pilgrimage place for esotericists, where they search for the entrance to Shambala, and for material mountaineers as well.

Yarovoe Lake is not inferior to the Dead Sea by its mineral composition.

Belokurikha sanatoriums revive not only soul, but also body (here both medicinal mud, and mineral waters, and even baths with extracts from maral horns).

And for the lovers of countryside tourism there is an offer of organic products directly from garden bed.

There is also an entertainment for those who like to spend their time actively – walking and horseback riding trails and rafting on rivers.

1. the Azov sea

Compared to the Black Sea Azov Sea – a budget option. The sea itself is smaller, instead of subtropical forests and mountains you will find wide steppe expanses.

But there is a peculiarity that will be appreciated by tourists with children – the depth. Azov Sea is shallow (its average depth is only 7 meters), and the descent is flat, long and only one and a half meters. Combined with the warm water, sand, the absence of noisy entertainment, it’s a great option for families who want a quiet and peaceful holiday with small children. The wide steppe expanses, strong winds and smooth water surface directly attract windsurfers, yachtsmen and kiting enthusiasts.

The most popular variant is Yeisk. Good and Kerch – here, in addition to beach holidays you can look at the monuments of architecture and history, as well as go on a gastronomic journey to the local Crimean Tatar cuisine.
