The world’s largest country, Russia stretches from the borders of Europe to the shores of the Pacific. Western Russia is the cultural and political heart of the nation. Here picture-perfect villages, with their onion-domed churches and carefully tended crops stand in contrast to the mighty metropolis of capital Moscow and charming neo-classical St Petersburg. Both cities are home to a wealth of historic treasures. In Moscow visit atmospheric Red Square, enter the Kremin and see St Basil’s frescoes. In St Petersburg for art lovers the Hermitage Museum is a must, then travel outside of the city to the spectacular palaces at Peterhof and Tsarskoe Selo. From here it is also possible to visit the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with Tallinn a simple train journey away from St Petersburg. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to Russia.
