Russia is a vast and diverse destination with a remarkable history, stunning architecture and cosmopolitan cities. Moscow, home to Red Square & the Kremlin and St Petersburg, with the famous Hermitage, are top cities for long weekends and worth combining for a week long holiday too. If you're keen to venture off the beaten track, Yekaterinburg, home of the Romonovs, is a real highlight and we recommend travelling there on the Trans-Siberian railway from Moscow, an experience in itself.
