The road to travel with Destination Russia is a long one: it takes many hours by train. But there is no time to be bored: the journey is a continuous discovery unveiling the true essence of this extraordinary country through encounters with ordinary people met in environments only cold in appearance but which, in reality, warm the heart. Destination Russia is, then, the narration of a string of unforgettable stories: the elderly lady travelling towards a remote archipelago in search of “hope” or Yashik, with his face marked by life, who already beyond the Arctic Circle, tells us he comes from North, the meeting with a cat (rather, a female cat) in the tundra, or the one with a couple of railway workers, living their love aboard the world’s longest railway line, or with the students of a school-museum. Even the one with an uncontaminated lake or simply with compartment mates on the train “where all of Russia travels”. The authors show us an extraordinary world through their eyes, a gaze that manifests all their love for this endless land, a passion as limitless as Russia itself, able to overcome geographical boundaries to reach the soul.
