Ever enigmatic, Russia - the world’s largest country - is home to opulent cities and epic train journeys, charming historical towns and wonderful wildernesses. Russia might not be the first place that comes to mind when planning a trip for two, but here is why Russia couples holidays should be next on your list. Visit the country’s cultural capital, St Petersburg, to marvel at the astonishing architecture
punctuating the skyline ranging from onion domed churches to pretty pastel-coloured palaces. Enjoy a romantic rendezvous in one of the many bars and restaurants cropping up around the city and delve into the vast State Hermitage Museum (the second-largest art museum in the world). Jump on a high speed train to reach Moscow, another city not to be missed on your Russia couples holidays. Enjoy grander than grand architecture, a buzzing nightlife oozing with glitz and glamour and the world's finest collection of Russian art at the Tretyakov Gallery. End your trip with a renewed passion for your other half and a blossoming love for this colossal country.

We had a fabulous time: all the planning and detail were worth it. I know I am a travel nerd but it (usually) pays off. This time it did. Thank you again for bearing with me. The guide in St Petersburg was especially good.
