The attractive city of St. Petersburg reflects a very European influence with first class museums hoarding extensive art collections and valuable artifacts from around the world. In Moscow spend your days wandering the grounds of the mighty Kremlin and taking in the sights around Red Square, and at night discover the city's vibrant nightlife and the Russian love of vodka. For something a little different head to the historic Golden Ring where you'll find idyllic rural towns littered with colourful churches and cathedrals.

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