Russia's capital is Moscow (= Moskva), which is also the biggest city of the country. Russia is by far the largest country of the world. Because the names of the localities would otherwise not be readable, we have subdivided Russia into 15 detail maps.
Kamchatka is a large peninsula located in eastern Siberia, between the Okhotsk Sea in the west and Bering Sea and Pacific Ocean in the east. The biggest towns on Kamchatka are Palana, Ossora, Klyuchi, Mil'kovo, Ust'-Kamchatsk, Ust'-Bolsheretsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskij (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskii). Kamchatka has remarkably high mountains, the highest peak is called Klyuchevskaya Sopka (4750 m altitude).
East of Kamchatka are located the islands of Beringa and Mednyj (Mednii, Mednyi). In the south is the island arc of the Kurile Islands (Kuril'skiye Ostrova), which extends to northern Japan. The largest islands of the Kurile Islands are Paramushir, Onekotan, Urup, Iturup and Kunashir. The town of Kuril'sk is located on the island of Iturup. The island of Kunashir is located directly off the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

The single official language throughout the whole country of Russia is Russian. The are at least 27 locally official languages, so that Russia is also the country with the highest number of in official languages of the world. Most languages are written in the Cyrillic alphabet, like Russian, this is a result of political pressure of Soviet times. Exceptions are Chechen, Tatar and Finnish which are written in the Latin script, and Yiddish, which is written in the Hebraic script.
Russia's official languages are the following: Adyghe (Adygeya), Altai (Altay), Avar (Dagestan), Bashkir (Bashkiria), Buriat (Buryatia), Chechen (Chechnya), Chuvash (Chuvashia), Finnish (Karelia), Ingush (Ingushetiya), Kabardian (Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachaevo-Cherkessia), Kalmyk (Kalmykia), Karachay-Balkar (Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachaevo-Cherkessia), Khakas (Khakassia), Komi (Komi), Koryak (Koryakia), Kumyk (Dagestan), Lak (Dagestan), Lezghian (Dagestan), Mari (Mari El), Mordvin (Mordovia), Nenets (Nenets Autonomous Region), Ossetian (North Ossetia), Tatar (Tatarstan), Tuvinian (Tyva), Udmurt (Udmurtia), Yakut (Yakutia), Yiddish (Jewish Autonomous Region).

Tourism is locally of high importance in Russia. Every visitor of the largest country of the world is expected to have visited Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Tourists often have problems because they need Visa, which are not easy to obtain. It is a pity that Russia presents itself to each individual person who desires to visit this great country, as a country with serious problems of widely distributed corruption and widely missing democratic structures.
We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Russia.

This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.
