Three capitals of Russia: Moscow, Velikiy Novgorod and St Petersburg

If you want a taste of the real Russia, this is the trip for you. An eight-day tour of Russia's must-see attractions, it takes in Moscow, the powerhouse of the country, Novgorod the Great, one of its most ancient cities, and beautiful, beautiful St Petersburg.

Experience first hand the vibrancy of Moscow's Red Square, get a sense for medieval Russia as you explore Novgorod and catch up with all that art that's so far passed you by with a trip to St Petersburg's Hermitage Museum.

A fantastic opportunity to find out about how these cities have affected the political, economic and cultural development of Russia and see how relevant they are to the modern state today.

Highlights

  • An eight day tour spending three days in Moscow, one day in Novgorod, and four days in St Petersburg.
  • Wandering the winding streets and wide Soviet squares of Moscow, taking in the unique combination of classic, Stalinist and modern architecture
  • Experiencing one of the masterpieces of the Soviet era created in the Socialist Realism style - the Moscow Metro
  • Marveling at one of the most famous squares in the world - Red Square
  • Soaking up history in the ancient Medieval city of Novgorod including visits to the oldest palace, oldest clock and bell towers and Yuriev Monastery, one of Russia’s oldest monasteries (founded in 1030).
