Russia Itineraries

A country the size of Pluto, where beer was not considered an alcoholic beverage until 2013 and teachers can, in times of economic disparity, be paid in vodka; Russia is a law unto itself. Discover the sheer splendour of St. Petersburg, and the heady buzz of its age-old rival, Moscow, once the heart of Communist Europe, now a city of revelry and excess. The itineraries below are designed to give you a taste of what is possible, but are by no means set in stone.

All holidays created by Original Travel are completely bespoke, designed by our team of specialists who use their personal travel experience to create the perfect tailor-made itinerary for you.

We very much believe that 'life is in the detail', and so, whether you are looking to marvel at Monets and Matisses in the largest art collection in the world, to bawl at the Bolshoi Ballet, or to wash down your blinchiki (Russian pancakes) with local vodka somewhere swanky, speak to our specialists to create your bespoke itinerary.
