Russian and East European Travel Literature by Pilgrims to the Holy Land, Arabic-speaking Regions and Constantinople

Discussion published by Orel Beilinson on Monday, April 13, 2015 

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for travel literature written by Russians and people from the lands included in the Russian Empire from 900 to 1917, travelling to Constantinople, Arabic-speaking Middle East, and the Holy Land.

I'd love to get any hint possible.

Thank you!
