Overview

Operated by ?

This 8-day introductory tour of Russia will lead you to the country’s two largest and most fascinating cities, St. Petersburg and Moscow. Double the blinis, borscht, and Baroque architecture as you savor the sights, history, and flavors of Russia’s former and current capital. Like a set of Russian nesting dolls, the amazement keeps coming with visits to St. Petersburg’s grand, golden-domed St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the impressive Winter Palace complex—once the residence of the czars and now home to the Hermitage, the world’s second largest art museum. A high-speed train to Moscow reveals the legendary Red Square, the stunning Cathedral of Christ the Saviour—the largest Orthodox Christian church in the world—and the storied towers, cathedrals, and palaces of the fortified Kremlin.
