This is the view from the 2nd Summit of mt. Elbrus (Caucasus).

The Mountain is called as the highest in Europe (geographical, cuase sometimes people call Mont-Blanc with this name). Elbrus is volcano and has two summits. Highest point is 5642 is Western, and this summit is 5621 Eastern.

This was one of the hardest point to reach for VR shooting!  more than 8 hours of climbing , within tight cloud and desperate wind we reached the summit and rewarded with incredible view!

The interactive tour about The Area is here (press the Sun;)

This is an overview of Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!

Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.

Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).

The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.

Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)

After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
