A delightful travel book  May 10, 2008
Russia, despite its many recent upheavals continues to be an intriguing country. Masha Nordbye's just published "Moscow St Petersburg & The Golden Ring" is the perfect travel guide for those planning to visit Russia, or for those interested in Russia's rich culture and history. The book, beside being an incomparable travel guide, is also embellished with many relevant cultural and historic quotes that together with beautiful photographs and maps, make it an intellectually appealing volume.
An added bonus to the book is the addition of detailed information about the now popular region around the Volga basin--the area called "The Golden Ring" where many of Russia's well preserved old churches and monasteries are located and where most other travel guides to Russia seem to ignore.
Finally, a kudos to ODYSSEY BOOKS & GUIDES for publishing what appear to be the best travel guides in the market.
