Read Robert Massie’s Catherine the Great to get in the Russia state of mind. Her story—an obscure German princess who transformed herself by sheer determination into the powerful and independent-thinking empress of Russia—speaks volumes about imperial Russia and its place in the larger world. Any visit to Russia should include both Moscow and St. Petersburg. Moscow is the pulse of Russia, her economic, financial, and intellectual heart. St. Petersburg, one of the world’s great living museums, was the 17th-century vision of Czar Peter the Great.
