There are more than 100 nature reserves in Russia. To visit many of them, you need special equipment and tracking for several days. Many of them are very convenient even for short visits.
If you want to see the Siberian Taiga, the best option is to visit the city of Krasnoyarsk, where the Krasnoyarsk pillars nature reserve is located close to the urban development. Here you can see the exceptional beauty of the Siberian nature among the picturesque rocks.
A significant part of the Caucasus mountains is included in the Caucasian biosphere reserve. There are beautiful gorges, relic forests, and Alpine meadows. The most accessible part of the Caucasian reserve is located on the southern slope of the mountains near Sochi. However also beautiful areas are located on the Northern slope of the Caucasian ridge in the areas of Adygea, Dombai, Elbrus, Chegemsky gorge and others. In North Ossetia, the most beautiful gorges are the Tsey, Fiagdon and Karmadon.
In the European part of Russia, the most famous reserves are the Curonian spit (sand dunes), Belogorye (chalk white mountains), Seliger lake (a large system of lakes), Samara Luka (chalk mountains), Orenburg (Kovyl steppes), and others.
In the Urals, the most famous reserve is Taganay, but to see its all most beautiful places, in one day is not possible. The same applies to the mountainous regions of Altai, Sayan mountains, and Kamchatka. There are incredibly beautiful and unusual places, but it takes several days to track them.
Lake Baikal can be visited during a day trip to the village of Listvyanka, but there you will not see the real beauty of lake Baikal. You have to go to the island of Olkhon, and from there make radial excursions to the most beautiful places.
