This add-on is a 4-day tour of St Petersburg that can be booked in conjunction with our Trans-Siberian Railway journeys starting in Moscow.
Start your adventure in the beautiful city of the tsars - St Petersburg, see the sights, with free time to explore before taking the overnight train to Moscow to begin your Trans-Siberian adventure!
Welcome to St Petersburg! Arrival transfer from St Petersburg Pulkovo airport to our hotel. Buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants, St Pete's is renowned for its fine Baltika beer and unashamedly good vodka. Perhaps get your trip off to a celebratory start! Overnight: St Petersburg.
St Petersburg is designed around a series of canals and rivers. Bereft of the Soviet breezeblock style architecture that characterises so many of Russia's cities, the city is jam-packed with grandiose palaces and stately buildings. The world-famous Hermitage art collection at the Winter Palace remains St Pete's top culture-vulture attraction. The palaces and stately homes of the aristocratic tsars, Tsarskoe Selo and Peterhof are also worth seeking out.
This morning you'll be met at your hotel by a local guide and then taken on a walking tour of the city's key sights. Later your guide can either walk you back to your hotel, or you can remain in downtown St Petersburg to soak up the culture and atmosphere of the city. Overnight: St Petersburg. (B)
St Petersburg - Moscow. Free day to explore the city and surrounds. Most of the inner city sights are located on and just off the main thoroughfare Nevsky Prospekt, that stretches for around 4 km from near the Winter Palace Embankment to Alexander Nevsky Monastery, so St Pete's is a great city to walk around. Tonight - an included transfer to the rail station for overnight train to Moscow. Overnight: Sleeper Train. (B)
This morning arrive into Moscow and start your Trans-Siberian trip.
