Things to Do in Russia
Lean into the limitless wonder and awe-inspiring style that the cities of Russia bring. Moscow and St Petersburg are full of rich history and architecture with numerous places to visit and things to do, we can arrange expert private guides and drivers for the duration of your stay.
In Moscow we would recommend driving up to Sparrow Hill, to enjoy the panoramic view of the whole city from one of Stalin's famous 'Seven Sister' tower blocks, before heading into the city to visit Red Square and the glory of the Czars in Moscow's Kremlin museums.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. We adore the unique architecture of the 'Venice of the North' from the water on a private boat tour of St Petersburg’s river and canals. Or for something a little different we can arrange a visit to a vodka museum or an afternoon painting your own Matryoshka dolls or learning to prepare a stroganoff with a real Russian housewife.
