Winter in the wild forest. Wild nature, taiga, snow

The modern city dweller tired of surrounding fuss and noise, more and more dreams of joining with nature, walking through silent woods, breathing pure air, listening to singing birds. Russia is one of the most attractive countries for ecological tourism. Many-sided nature of Central Russia with its wide open spaces of fields and river valleys, or vivifying elements of woods, has been glorified in national tales and legends.
The taiga is a forest of the cold, subarctic region. In Siberia (Russia), the world’s largest taiga stretches about 6,000 kilometers, from the Pacific Ocean to the Ural Mountains. Siberia makes up about 77% of Russia's territory (about 13 million square kilometres), but is home to only 28% (40 million people) of Russia's population.
The climate of Siberia varies dramatically. On the north coast, north of the Arctic Circle, there is a very short (about one-month-long) summer.
Almost all the population of Siberia lives in the south, along the Trans-Siberian Railway. The climate in this southernmost part is Humid continental climate (Köppen Dfb) with cold winters but fairly warm summers lasting at least four months.
