The continuing falls in the cost of global transport are making exciting new destinations affordable and popular. Russia, the largest country in the world, is growing in popularity as a destination for infertility and IVF treatment.
Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It is also close to the United States (Alaska state), Sweden, and Japan across relatively small stretches of water -the Bering Strait, the Baltic Sea, and La Pérouse Strait, respectively.
Tourism in Russia has been growing rapidly with most of the tourism centred on the cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg where most of the famous attractions of Russia are located, such as the Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin in Moscow, the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the State Hermitage Museum and the Church of the Savior on Blood in St. Petersburg.
Prices in Russia are extremely competitive, not only for infertility treatment but also for accommodation, shopping and transport.
