Russia is impossible to summarize. How does one sum up the world's largest country with a history spanning a thousand years? Its geography encompasses almost every imaginable landscape, its architecture runs from iconic fairytale palaces to crude Soviet concrete monoliths, and its politics have ranged from tsars to revolution.
