Russia is the largest country in the world. The vast territory of Russia lies in the eastern part of Europe and the northern part of Asia. Russia is bordered by 12 seas of 3 oceans. It also shares borders with many countries, such as Mongolia and China to the southeast, Finland and Norway to the northwest and so on.
The vast land of Russia varies very much from forests to deserts, from high mountains to deep valleys. The main mountain chains are the Urals, the Caucasus and the Altai. There are a lot of great rivers and deep lakes on its territory. The longest rivers are the Volga, the Lena and the Yenisei. Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and its water is the purest in the world.
The current population of Russia is more than 150 million people. The capital of Russia is Moscow with a population of about 110 million people. Russia is a presidential republic. It has also its own Parliament, which consists of two chambers.
There is nothing better and the most expensive in the world like Native Land. It gives us wings for flight, lights every our step. It is impossible to choose Native Land. It can be only loved or treated indifferently to.
Unfortunately some people don’t have the sense of patriotism and feeling of pride. How to develop this sense?
Recently I have been to the city at the bank of the river the Neva – Saint Petersburg. I visited a lot of excursions and knew the city’s history. I was very impressed by magnificent buildings of Cathedrals, ancient Palace`s towers and many other sights. Having seen all the sights I understood that exactly in such cities we could develop the spirit of Homeland and bring up to love the country.
After this journey my love to the Native Land became stronger and I’m ready to defend it and do good to it.
