Associated with high-quality, low-cost medical care facilities,
Russia can offer medical service packages considerably lower than that
of other countries and a lot faster.
With the growth of medical tourism it has become a global health destination.
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 private surgery and 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,
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 medical
treatment but also for accommodation, shopping and transport.
