is commonly known as the biggest country in the world, so there is a
great amount of fascinating places which are worth featuring in the
Atlas documentary. I’d like to describe 3 of my favourite ones.
Moscow: Russia’s heart
is the capital of Russia and is located in the middle of the country.
This city is widely famous for its vast size, beauty and its friendly
accommodating inhabitants. Behind the glitz of the modern megapolis
there’s a range of historical churches and monasteries. This
contrast of old and new makes the city perfect to be the star of the
documentary. It would also be very interesting to film some young
Moscow art students, because they are cosmopolitan and fashion and
could represent well the future of Russia.
St.Petersburg: The cultural capital
residents of St- Petersburg consider this city to be the
cultural centre of Russia because of its many monuments, art
galleries and museums. Visiting this city you can enjoy a calm
atmosphere and be surrounded with thoroughly polite, well-educated
and level-headed people. So I would recommend some shots of this
cultural heritage sites and maybe of the local residents, who are
very elegant, conservative and charming.

unique cathedrals, churches and monasteries of Veliky Ustyug attract
ever-increasing number of tourists. Ded Moroz, Russia’s equivalent
of Santa Claus, lives a few miles outside Veliky Ustyug. The camera

Russian children having fun in the snow. This would portray a very
peaceful and harmonic image of Russia.
I think these cities undoubtedly deserve a place in the Atlas
