- There are few trips to choose between in Russia and most focus on Moscow and St Petersburg so this was a slightly longer trip adding in the Golden Ring. Tour guides focussed very much on the Tsars. I would have liked to have had a broader experience of Russia. We spent additional time after the trip ended in St Petersburg which allowed us to attend the Museum of Political History which was incredible, bringing together footage and artefacts from 1800 to the present day. Don't miss this. I've suggested it be part of the main tour. Russia is truly stunning. Supplement the church focus with your own broader reading if you can.
