Russia attracts visitors from all over the world with its enigmatic charm and the unique things it has to offer. Designated a destination on everyone’s ‘things to do before I die’ list and one of the few places with an immediate ‘wow’ factor, the largest country on the planet remains one of the least understood and thus most intriguing. The excellent products on offer and the unique combination of programs tinged with the exotic make Russia one of the world’s most attractive destinations today.
Widely accepted as one of the most beautiful and architectural capitals in the world, Moscow is the heart of Mother Russia, radiating Slavic grandeur and a sense of things to come.
Moscow offers a unique blend of tradition and modernity, a combination of ancient art luxury and high-tech trends. The brave new world of the nouveau riche is as omnipresent and prominent as the proud centuries-old monasteries and stately homes and palaces. Over the following centuries Moscow grew in stature, and the numerous historical buildings in the city today bear witness to stylistic influences from Asia Minor to Italy.
Founded by Peter the Great, Russia’s first and most famous Emperor, St Petersburg combines its fascinating Russian heritage with a distinctly European outlook (“a window to the West”) and is considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Officially proclaimed the “Cultural Capital of Russia” St. Petersburg is a place, where you need weeks just to see all its major landmarks. Since the city is built on more than 20 islands separated by around 40 rivers and canals, it is often called the Venice of the North. St Petersburg is also famous for its “white nights” in May, June and July when the sun almost never goes down.
