About Russia

Russia Experience Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Moscow

Whether it's awe-inspiring history, iconic architecture, edgy creative centres or stylish bars and cafes, Moscow delivers on so many levels with a surprise around every corner.

Day 3 Suzdal

Crumbling churches and charming wooden cottages line the narrow streets of Suzdal, one of the fascinating towns which make up Russia’s historic Golden Ring.

Days 4-6 Kazan

Kazan is the capital of the Tatarstan Republic, so listen out for Tatar being spoken on the streets and look for the Tatarstan flag flying proudly alongside the flag of Russia.

Days 7-9 Yekaterinburg

The gateway between European and Siberian Russia, Yekaterinburg is best known as the place of exile and execution of the last Russian royal family, the Romanovs.

Days 10-11 Tobolsk/Pokrovskoye

Tobolsk was one of the first settlements in Siberia but having been bypassed by the main Trans-Siberian Railway, it long resisted modernisation and still has an entrancing Old Town and Kremlin. Birthplace of the notorious Rasputin, the village of Pokrovskoye is great place to experience a Russian banya (steam room) and enjoy a traditional home-cooked meal.

Days 12-14 St Petersburg

The booming Siberian town of Tyumen has a number of sights to explore including the riverside Trinity Monastery, City Park and the atmospheric central square.
