Russia is a country comprising northern Europe and Asia. It is the largest country in the entire world, encompassing a total of 17,075,400 km2. The majority of its area is within Asia, including the large area known as Siberia. However, it is generally considered to be a European country, as the majority of its population lives within the European area. Following the Russian Revolution, it became known as the Soviet Union. Eventually the union dissolved and many former republics split off, leaving the nation we know today. It has a population of 143,300,000 and speaks a total of 28 official languages, which vary by region. The prevalent language is Russian. It is bordered by Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Belarus and Ukraine to the west, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia and North Korea to the south, and the exclave of Kaliningrad borders Poland and Lithuania.

Russia has long been a staple of the original American version of the show, but it was never visited by an international version until 2014. All visits have been to either Moscow or Saint Petersburg, with the exception of Season 14, which visited Siberia, and the Australian version, which visited Kostroma. Every time two legs occur in Russia, one is a non-elimination leg, and the other is an elimination leg.
