The preferred setting for many a spy novel, legendary Moscow is a thoroughly modern city with vibrant nightlife and green open spaces popping up alongside what could perhaps be considered the very foundation of the country - the mighty Kremlin. The attractive port city of St. Petersburg is filled to the brim with impressive art collections and cultural treasures from around the world. Head out of the cities and you'll find the picture-perfect rural towns of the historic Golden Ring.

Discover Russia on an escorted group tour covering the main highlights or journey across the country on an epic Trans-Siberian Railway adventure.
