This tour includes a delightful seven nights' stay in two of Russia’s iconic metropolis. Our exclusive action-packed stay in the land of Soviet tsars and Stolichnaya vodka will see you revel in the sights and delights of St. Petersburg and Moscow – two of the country’s most iconic cities.
Starting off in a port city sitting by the Baltic Sea, St. Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great in the early 18th-century. With theatrical venues, operatic oeuvres and world-renowned museums galore, the city is a breeding ground for art, history, and culture.
One of its must-sees is the Winter Palace and Hermitage Museum – both housed in the same gloriously captivating building dating back to the late 1760s. The city is beautifully displaying a collection of over three million pieces spanning the globe, this enormous palace-museum; is one of the city’s prime attractions – home to the works of Rembrandt, Leonardo and Michelangelo. After that, pay a visit to Peter and Paul Fortress (the burial site of the Romanov Tsars) or fall in love with the jazzy-toned Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood – Russian architecture at its finest.
Next is your train from St. Petersburg to Moscow! What a better way to end your tour than experiencing the capital of Russia? Here, you'll get to throw yourself at the mercy of galleries, museums, and palaces.
Your first port of call might be Red Square, nestled in the city’s epicenter and fringed by St Basil’s Cathedral, the State History Museum, and Lenin’s Mausoleum. This means you can tick off plenty of things on your bucket list all within a couple of hours. Last but never least, stand in line for the chance to gawp at the embalmed body of Lenin at his mausoleum, wander over to GUM (Russia’s main department store) for a bit of a splurge, or take a tour of the Kremlin museum complex.
