    Guess where is this place! Reminds you of the Alps?
    Nope, this is Shavlinskoye Lake in the Altai Republic in northwestern Russia.

    You would never guess that all these pictures were taken in Russia; take a look at Sputnik's gallery to find out the many faces of the country.

    While foreigners associate Russia with the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral and wintery landscapes, the country is much more diverse than one can imagine. You would be surprised to find out that you could find a Tibetan temple, volcanos and a city full of skyscrapers without even leaving the territory of one country.
