We are RBTH Travel, a special international project that is crucial component of Russia Beyond the Headlines. Our mission is not only to give every foreign reader the chance to discover Russia and overcome stereotypes about our country, but also to create a worldwide awareness of Russia as a tourist destination. It is a place that is suitable for families, business and solo travelers and for each there is a destination, type of leisure and a setting for new discoveries.

Our expert Russian and foreign authors create original texts and visual content with a wide range of themes, genres and formats: Travel reports, city guides, tips for travelers and online cultural and geographic tests and even quizzes. We collaborate widely with professional writers, accomplished journalists and experienced travelers.

Regular updates on the website are distributed according to headings including destinations (Russian regions, Kamchatka, Siberia, Moscow, the Arctic, the South of Russia, etc.), types of trip (weekend escape, active vacations, gastronomic tourism, etc.), as well as a series on Russian UNESCO World Heritage sites. There is also a regular column about the best and newest travel options countrywide, TravelAllRussia; Brand New Moscow Walks, a special series on new pedestrian zones and reconstructed embankments in Moscow; a series on driving the Trans-Siberian Highway from Vladivostok to Moscow, Russian Road Trip; and an insider’s column called Local`s Moscow.
