We stop for lunch at the popular restaurant, where we enjoy a hearty meal, before exploring inside the beautiful Church on Spilled Blood.|

Our Catherine Palace (winter) or Peterhof Gardens (summer) bolt on is available on all tours visiting St Petersburg.|
|Escape the bustling city of St Petersburg with an overnight stay in ancient Novgorod. Your visit begins with a tour of the historic Kremlin (Fortress) grounds and the open air museum of Russian wooden architecture, then there's free time to independently explore Novgorod - listed by UNESCO as one of the top 100 cities of the world. Why not soak up the views from a leisurely walk along the Volkhov river, visit one of the great medieval abbeys, or wander round the quaint shops and bars.|

Ms Marney Unthank,
Overall I've had an excellent time in Russia & a memorable Christmas.
Ksenia was fabulous, always willing to go the extra mile & very funny!
Ksenia was an excellent guide with amazing knowledge of Russian history. She was very informative, enthusiastic and fun.
I enjoyed Russian Banya in Pskov and had had great Xmas dinner!
I've had an absolute ball in Russia and so pleased I chose to spend Xmas here as it just added to the atmosphere. Our guide was the best, she has so much knowledge and shares this with everybody! She goes out of her way to assist no matter what the request!
Katya is a bit of pure gold. She was funny, intelligent, honest and very well versed in her Russian history. Beyond knowing everything about everything in every location we went to, at our request on our bus trip into Moscow she gave us a brief but poignant history of the rise and fall of Communism. It really put things into a real perspective for us. I am indefinitely grateful to her for making the trip so easy and educational. She was amazing. She should be held on to for as long as you can.
