Russia is one of the largest countries in the world, which means there is plenty to see and do during a Russian holiday.
For Danish citizens, traveling to Russia has just become easier thanks to 2.5 hour direct flights and an overhaul of the current visa program. In fact, the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation recently announced the launch of new evisas (electronic visas) for holders of Danish passports.
This means that travelers will no longer need to wait in lines at their local consulate, have an in-person interview with an immigration officer, or have to wait weeks to hear a decision on the status of their Russian visa.
