Vacation abroad: in which countries do not need a visa
More and more Russians like to travel andto spend vacation time abroad. An era passed when numerous crowds devoted time, free from work, exclusively to traveling around the Golden Ring of Russia or traveling to the Gulf of Finland. Fashion for exotics came even to those who remained faithful to Lake Baikal and the Caucasus - sometimes vacation abroad is cheaper, and service - an order of magnitude better. But on the way to the cherished European countries there is a curtain - no longer Iron, of the times of the USSR, but external. Embassies of the Schengen states are not in a hurry to open visas to citizens of the Russian Federation, and the process of obtaining the coveted insertion in the passport is long, tedious and tied - which is a sin to hide - with humiliations. Therefore, some tourists, having time and money, choose for their holiday countries, which do not need a visa.

At the moment, there are 8 countries where Russian citizens are allowed on an internal passport. From the countries of Eastern Europe are Ukraine, Belarus and Transnistria. In Belarus, you can stay as many as you like, and not only rest there, but also learn and work. Rest in Ukraine on the shores of the Black Sea or the Sea of Azov is possible only for 90 days. To the necessary list of countries that do not need a visa, one can also refer to the unrecognized Transnistrian republic.

However, we must remember that travel through them to Georgia is impossible.
