Russia is a truly multicultural county, with over 160 distinct ethnic groups calling it home. All of which have influenced the art, architecture, music and folklore of the country. Perhaps the most famous artistic symbol of Russia is the matryoshka doll. The first set of these stacking, wooden dolls was made in 1890. When they were brought to Paris for the World Exhibition in 1900, they earned the bronze medal and began to rapidly gain popularity. With a rental car in Moscow, you can pay a visit to the Toy Museum Russian Academy of Education, where the very first matryoshka is on display. You will also be able to see the amazing Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg. These gorgeous buildings are shining examples of what makes Russia's architecture so famous.
