Moscow and St Petersburg WR

Visiting: Russia
Trip Duration 8 Days

Highlights trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia

On this short trip, we explore Russia's two most important cities in-depth. In Moscow, we take-in the Kremlin, the 16th century Saint Basil's Cathedral and have the chance to see Lenin's embalmed body in its Red Square mausoleum. Later, we discover the contrasting architecture of St. Petersburg, with its European influences and vast, flamboyant palaces. For 2017 we will be using the famous Red Arrow Train, which in Soviet times carried the Communist Party elite between Moscow and Leningrad (St. Petersburg) and has been operating since 1931. The train has been kept in its original style, so it's a unique experience and like taking a step back in time to an era when train travel was at its prime.
