Literature tour - Moscow & St Petersburg

Russian literature is one of the most important components of the country’s cultural history. Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Pushkin, Bulgakov and Turgenev are just a few of Russia's internationally famous writers. During our tour, you’ll have a fantastic opportunity to touch, walk in and experience the environment where Natasha Rostova or Rodion Roskolnikov were depicted in ‘War and Peace’ and ‘Crime and Punishment’, respectively.

If you would like to gain an insight into the Russian character and fascinating world of Russian literature, our trip is the best option for you to explore.

Our Russian Literary Tour begins in Moscow, Russia’s capital, where we will visit such marvellous sites as the famous Bolshoi Theatre, the Kremlin and Red Square, and St Basil’s Cathedral. We will also spend time at the Chekhov Museum and Leo Tolstoy House-Museum. The Literary tour further includes a one-day tour to Yasnaya Polyana, where the world-renowned writer Leo Tolstoy lived. The final destination of our Russian Literary Tour is St Petersburg, a city of breathtaking beauty, where we will see the Peter and Paul Fortress and St Basil’s Island, the statue of Peter the Great, Nevsky Prospekt and the Hermitage Museum. We will also spend some time at the 18th-century Baroque-style Catherine’s Palace at Tsarskoye Selo, and pay a visit to the Pushkin Museum. For our overnight stays, we’ll choose a unique boutique hotel inspired by “Crime and Punishment” – the Radisson Sonya.
