Reasons to Visit Russia

  • Architecture

    The colourful dome topped cathedrals of Orthodox Russia are stunning and present a stark contrast to the Soviet era monoliths that are so often a part of Russian cities.

  • Arts & culture

    Some of the world’s greatest writers, composers and choreographers and cultural institutes are Russian; from Dostoevsky and Tchaikovsky to the Bolshoi theatre and Kirov ballet.

    Arts & culture
  • Ballet & Opera

    Russia is the birthplace of ballet and a visit to either Moscow's Bolshoi or St Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre is a must. Even for those who aren't well versed in either art form, you should take in a performance simply for the wonderful music, beautiful theatres and sumptuous costumes on show.

    Ballet & Opera
  • Cities

    St Petersburg is on the world’s most romantic and beautiful cities, home to stunning architecture, a cultural arts scene and world class restaurants and hotels. A true winter wonderland.

  • Modern history

    The domination of the USSR is inescapable, as is the legacy of Lenin and Stalin. Russia has shaped and changed 20th Century history and will continue to do so for years to come.

    Modern history
  • Trains

    The Trans-Siberian railway is one of life’s great journeys, travelling hundreds of kilometres across Russia’s vast expanses, across European Russia, the Ural Mountains and into Siberia.
