Places in Russia that look just like world's famous sites

Updated: Jun 7

Thanks to diverse nature and climat, Russia has numerous sites that look just like the world’s most famous destinations, for example, Versaille and Strasbourg in France, Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic, lakes in Canada and channels in Amsterdam, to name a few. Instead of flying from one country to another, you can go off the beaten path with the same effect. Naturally, some cultural sightseeing can never be fully replaced, for instance, Versaille will always be one and only. But other sites are no less breathtaking and charming. Here, take a look!
