I recently went to Russia and enjoyed my stay over there. I lived in this lovely Rental apartment in the heart of the city. If you too are thinking about a visit to Russia check them out. Here is their details from their website.

Welcome-to-Russia deals with short-term rentals in 26 cities of Russia, Ukraine and CIS. We offer wide selection of apartments from small studios to luxurious 5-room flats. Apartments have obvious advantages over hotels: they are more spacious, allow saving your money, can be rented by a group of people and you can invite friends to stay any time of the day or night. In general an apartment rent is less expensive than a 4*hotel room. Also along with apartment rentals we offer additional services: transfer, visa support and translation.
For more than 8 years we have been providing high-class services and now we have 1000s of regular customers.
The Russian Federation is the largest of the 21 republics that make up the Commonwealth of Independent States. It occupies most of eastern Europe and north Asia, stretching from the Baltic Sea in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east, and from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Black Sea and the Caucasus in the south. It is bordered by Norway and Finland in the northwest; Estonia, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania in the west; Georgia and Azerbaijan in the southwest; and Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, and North Korea along the southern border.
First question that you will face when starting to plan your trip - what is the best season to come to Russia. There are no doubts, you'd better go in summer. Summer in Russia lasts from June to August. If you are going to Siberia or Far East, the most beautiful weather there is in September.
Winter travels have their special charm, but you'd better don't try if you are not used to subzero temperatures.
