A vast and varied country, there are no two destinations the same in the amazing nation of Russia. There are metropolitan cities in St. Petersburg and Moscow, while natural havens like Ruskeala and Lake Baikal are perfect for those seeking some serenity.
The capital city of Moscow is a city much like other European capitals, London, Paris, and Berlin, it’s chock full of amazing cuisine, stunning architecture, and a ridiculously long list of cultural things to do. One of the first things you should do on your Russian holiday to Moscow is take in both the imposing Kremlin and walk around the world-famous Red Square. Quintessentially Russian, these two sites are what the city is all about.
Another popular city in Russia is St. Petersburg – a city which has firmly cemented its status as Russia’s cultural capital over the last three centuries. The hometown of such luminary figures as Dostoyevsky, Rachmaninoff, Fabergé and Russia’s greatest poet, Alexander Pushkin, this romantic city full of canals, boulevards and beautiful houses, is well-versed in art, music and creativity. Start your exploration of the city from the jaw-dropping Palace Square. Surrounded by the imposing Winter Palace and the Hermitage Museum, this is the historical heart of St Petersburg. From here you can either choose to go for a stroll through the Summer Garden, immediately east of the palace, or seek out some of the many gems that hide in plain sight.
