1. "Giants" in Northern Ireland ↔VS.↔ Cape Stolbchaty the Kuril Islands
Park giant basalt columns - perhaps the main attraction of Northern Ireland. Multifaceted volcanic pillars orderly rows go to sea, as if a giant road, lined with prehistoric paving slabs. The Kuril Islands Kunashir in Russia have the same vylkanicheskie column. This picturesque place is called simply the Cape Pier. Irish as a tourist attraction, not without pathos name "Giants". Perhaps that is why in the UNESCO World Heritage made a "trail" rather than a cape.
2 "Petite France" in Strasbourg ↔VS.↔ "Fish Village" in Kaliningrad
"Fishing Village" - this name has gained ethnographic center with elegant houses along the waterfront. In his appearance did not immediately understand its location, as it fits under the European stereotypes. Similar houses with wooden frames or fahverhom we can observe in Germany, Poland, France, for example, in Rothenburg ob der Tauber or Strasbourg.
3. Aurora Borealis in Sweden or Finland ↔VS.↔Polyarnoe glow in Karelia
Aurora - a sight that in America and Europe has long become a source of income tourism industry.

It's no secret that Canada - one of the richest countries in the lake of great beauty. A lot of them, Canadians account for more than 30 000. We, of course, the figures are far from such beauty but we do not concede. For example Kucherlinskoye and Teletskoe lake in Altai, and Onega in Karelia Lazhoskoe, Upper Volga lakes and, of course, Lake Baikal.
5. The sandy beaches of Portugal, Atlantic ↔VS.↔ Curonian Spit, Baltic
Sound of the surf and the sand dunes to the horizon - a place that can be so described, is in Russia. For example, the Curonian Spit in the Kaliningrad region, on the border with Lithuania. Surprisingly, but in the summer the water temperature is quite comparable to the Atlantic coast of Portugal.
6. Wulingyuan, China ↔VS.↔ Lena Pillars, Yakutia
Limestone cliffs-pillars the Zhangjiajie National Park - one of the most unique natural attractions of China. When low clouds wrap up the foot of the cliffs, it seems that the mountain just hovering in the air. They say that this show inspired James Cameron to create the flying mountains of Pandora in "Avatar."
In Russia there is no less spectacular cliffs: the hundred-meter height of the tower along the banks of the Lena, which are called - Lena Pillars. In 2012, it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, and who knows, maybe someday they will also become a source of inspiration for the crew of one of the blockbusters of the future.
7. ↔VS.↔ Amsterdam Canals of St. Petersburg Channel
What's more colorful - the channels of Amsterdam and St. Petersburg? Perhaps the Dutch more cozy and photogenic, and our - stricter and more severe. But St. Petersburg has a huge advantage: to ride on its channels, no need to get a Schengen visa.
8. dogsled in Lapland and Alaska ↔VS.↔ sled dog race in Karelia and Kamchatka
Sled dog race is rapidly gaining popularity around the world, and it is possible that this sport will soon be returned to the Winter Olympics. TV shows about travel have taught us to think that the dog teams - it is something exotic, overseas and available only in Finland, Canada or the United States. But Russia, too, can easily become a participant or a spectator of these beautiful competition. Moreover, some historians believe that this very type of transport emerged once it is in Siberia, as, incidentally, and the breed husky. The most famous Russian race "Beringia", held in Kamchatka in 1990. Many events held in the European part of the country, for example, the "Kalevala" in Karelia, or "North Hope" in the Kostroma region.
9. Suntselin Monastery, Shangri-La ↔VS.↔ Ivilginski temple, Buryatia
In 2001, the Chinese district of Yunnan authorities have put a fat point in the long search for the fictional country of Shangri-La: they simply renamed County Zhongdian to Shangri-La. The edges are really a little magic, and one of the local wonders - a magnificent monastery Suntselin. A similar, albeit more modest, there is a Buddhist temple in Russia - it Ivilginski temple in Upper Orioles Buryatia.
10. Versailles, Paris ↔VS.↔ Peterhof, St. Petersburg
The similarity with Versailles Peterhof is no coincidence: it is the French wanted to outdo Peter I, it sets out the construction of the Grand Palace. It seems that his idea was a success, and today, many foreigners are called Peterhof: "Russian Versailles".

Every year more than a million tourists come to Cappadocia to see the mountain towns and churches of the museum under the open sky. This was a few people know, but similar cave churches there are here in the Voronezh region. For example, the Church of the Sicilian Icon of the Mother of God in Divnogorsk monastery or temple Kostomarovskaya Spassky Monastery.
12. The volcanoes and geysers of Iceland ↔VS.↔ volcanoes and geysers of Kamchatka
Kamchatka can in a sense be called a miniature Russian Iceland. There are hills and volcanoes, scenic canyons and waterfalls, the whole Valley of the Geysers and the beach with black volcanic sand, which, as in the cold of Iceland, it is unlikely someone will come to mind to swim or sunbathe.
