The Fifa World Cup will undoubtedly be one of the most prolific events in the sporting calendar this year, and the host country, Russia, will see record numbers of visitors. During the World Cup, visa restrictions will be lifted; and when it comes to Russia's infamously strict and complicated requirements for visitors - this is big, big news.
Russia is truly somewhere special; an enchanting land of golden domes and untamed nature as far as the eye can see. And its size is truly staggering, where else could you cross 10 time zones on a single train journey?
