Places to Visit in Russia
Lose yourself in the unfamiliar cities of Russia, be amazed by the opulent architecture and submerge in the deep history that runs throughout.
Moscow brings you unrivalled shopping on Arbat Street, visiting the Novodevichy Convent and Cemetery, or admiring the city's finest collection of painting as the Tretyakov Gallery. Other opportunities not to miss are the spectacular communist-era metro stations, decorated with bronze statues and elaborate chandeliers. Aim for an iconic Friday evening at the Astoria and let Tchaikovsky and the ballet wash over you. If you would prefer to do something more esoteric, we can arrange a visit to a government cold war command bunker or to a cosmonaut training centre. St. Petersburg, the cultural centre of Russia and easily one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With its many famous sites to visit such as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan and the elegant arcades of Gostiny Dvor department store, the Alexander Pushkin monument, the Russian Museum, the Mikhailovsky Theatre and the Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood to name a few.
