The cities of Moscow and St Petersburg have many fascinating museums and attractions that will appeal to children and teenagers alike.
In Moscow, the famous Gorky Park is great for children, with a funfair and collection of old Soviet space rockets. The Museum of Armed forces has a number of tanks, planes and other old Soviet hardware that younger children may enjoy clambering over. There is also the famous Moscow state circus.
In St Petersburg, a trip around the waterways of the city is a must for all ages. There is also a colourful and lively traditional Russian folk show, and for aspiring young ballerinas, St Petersburg is the home of ballet.
For those who don't mind the cold, a visit to Russia in winter offers a real winter wonderland experience that is sure to enchant children of all ages. Gorky Park is turned into an ice rink and we can arrange sleigh rides and any number of winter activities to make a magical trip for the whole family.
