I'm trying to figure out vacation plans for the year and am a bit stumped.
Come to Russia. If I still have a place in Tomsk by then, I'll show you around.
You can also check out Saint Peterburg (big, beautiful old city with remarkable architecture), Sochi (warm, sunny Russian-esque places with access to sea and lots of interesting little quirks) or Novosibirsk (the only million-people city in Western Siberia, very urban, has metro unlike most cities around it).
Those are the ones I've been to and seen (SPb only briefly, but the reputation has been there for ages - literally!). Lake Baikal, Crimea, Vladivostok, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Altai... and lots of land in between.
