Visit Russia with RNTO – so much to see and do!

Planning a trip to Russia? Not sure where to go first? Here are a few ideas to help you decide…

For lots of us planning to visit a foreign country for the first time, the obvious choice is to head straight for the capital. Moscow is a city with its own unique history, centuries-old traditions and a promising future. With such world-famous destinations as Red Square, St Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Bolshoi Theatre, there’s an endless list of things to do and places to visit that will keep even the most demanding traveller occupied from dawn till dusk and beyond.

St Basils Cathedral

Or if you’re after great art, extravagant architecture, incredible history and fascinating cultural traditions, then head for St Petersburg – a truly inspiring destination. There’s something for everyone on this ‘open-air museum’, with its amazing sites and wonderful night-life. From its fairytale winter cityscapes to its summer ‘white nights’ when the sun never truly sets, it’s the year-round destination you can’t afford to miss.

Fancy seeing a bit more of the country? Then head for the Golden Ring, a chain of ancient cities, towns and villages north-east of Moscow renowned for their architecture and beautiful scenery. It’s a chance to experience the unhurried pace of provincial life and explore the history of Russia away from the hustle and bustle of city life.


Still too hectic for you? Then why not try a river cruise? Travelling between Moscow and St Petersburg along an intricate network of interconnecting rivers, canals and lakes, you'll get to explore a diverse range of ancient and modern cities, discovering the joys of rural Eastern Europe at a more leisurely pace. If trains are more your thing, then the Trans-Siberian railway is definitely what you’re looking for. Stretching over 6000 miles from European Russia, through the Ural Mountains and into Siberia, before finally reaching Russia’s Asian shores, it's the incredible landscape which makes this train journey such an unforgettable experience.
