Day 1: Arrive Moscow

Zdrastvutye! Welcome to Russia.
You will be met at the airport in Moscow upon arrival and transferred to your hotel for check-in. Later tonight you’ll be treated to dinner with the rest of your group at the hotel, followed by an informative welcome meeting. The remainder of the evening at leisure.
The great city of Moscow has survived centuries of revolution and tumult, from the days of the tsars through the communist era to the growing pains of democracy. Beneath its modern veneer – a sign of Russia’s recent embrace of capitalism – Moscow is a fascinating, historic city with a wealth of sights to see.

Day 4: Moscow to St. Petersburg (By High Speed Train)

This morning we will take a high-speed train to St Petersburg (approximately 3.5 hours). Named after the mythical bird, this high-speed Russian train achieves a maximum speed of 250 kilometres per hour (155 miles per hour). Today this is arguably the most convenient way to commute between StPetersburgMoscow, and Vladimir. The convenience of the Sapsan train service already rivals travelling by air.

Arrive into St Petersburg, Russia’s current cultural, and former imperial, capital. Rest of the day is yours to do as you wish.

Day 5: Explore St. Petersburg

Take a guided walking tour to get familiar with the city – each walking tour is different based on the route the local guide chooses to take. Discover the hidden back alleys and small parks St Petersburg is famous for, as the local guide lifts the veil on this hidden world. Learn about the city’s fascinating history, and hear the retelling of stories about famous buildings and local residents. Typically, the tour will stay around Nevsky Prospekt and will often end at the Hermitage, with visits to the Kazan Cathedral, the Church on Spilled Blood, and St Isaac’s Cathedral along the way.

Day 6: St. Petersburg

Today is a free day to do as you wish.

With incredible art and architecture, this is a fascinating city to walk around.  St Petersburg is built on 42 islands and also known as the Venice of the North. Forget gondoliers though, this is a city to explore on foot and today you can spend the day crossing its rivers and canals at your own pace. Take in the ridiculous views across the city from the colonnade at St Isaac’s Cathedral, or stroll down St Petersburg’s main street. Pop into one of the awesome bakeries or coffee shops along the way, or maybe head down to Aleksandr Nevsky Lavra, where Russia’s great musicians and writers including Tchaikovsky and Dostoyevsky are laid to rest in the cemetery. A whole day could be spent wandering the halls of the Hermitage Museum, one of the largest and oldest museums in the world that houses one of the world’s premier art collections. Whatever you choose, the city is easy to get around and you make the most of your free day.
