Click to read details of the best summer vacation spots in Russia:

Drink mineral water in Kislovodsk

To spend the summer at a resort in the truest sense of the word, go to the waters - Caucasian Mineral. In Kislovodsk, nostalgia without a Soviet flavor is poured right into the air. Local spa hotels and sanatoriums are good for the whole family. While adults are taking narzan baths, relaxing under the hands of a masseur and puffing in a steam room, kids explore salt caves, frolic in pools and play in children's clubs.

It's great for everyone to walk in the Spa Park with the Valley of Roses, ride the cable car and drink mineral water in the old Narzan Gallery. Romantic couples will not get bored either: you need to go to the Honey Falls, visit the Lermontovskaya rock, where Pechorin fought with Grushnitsky, and also have dinner at a restaurant near the Castle of Treachery and Love.

How to get there: by train directly to Kislovodsk or by plane to Mineralnye Vody, and then an hour and a half by bus, minibus or train. If you drive, it is even more convenient to rent a car at the Minvod airport.

Get into the wilderness on Gorodomlya Island

Lake Seliger, Tver region, 380 km from Moscow

Students love to have a rest on Seliger. And what is not far, romantic and cheap. But all ages are submissive to love for clean lakes, warm sand and coniferous forests.

Motor ships and boats go from Ostashkov straight to Gorodomlya Island - the very one where Shishkin wrote sketches for Morning in a Pine Forest. The island is famous for its internal lake, which was called Divnoye for a reason, and the sandy Maiskaya spit. It is good to put up a tent in a deserted place, light a fire, turn off the phone and remember what it is like to talk heart to heart, and not like posts on Facebook. At the Ostashkov Forum, they will advise you on a private house or a hotel on Gorodoml and tell you where to rent a boat to admire the Nilovaya desert from the water.

How to get there: from Moscow to the city of Ostashkov by train with a change in Bologoye, and then to the island by motor ship or boat.
