Fantastic architecture, incredible history, glittering palaces and epic natural landscapes – magic and mystery are all waiting to be found in the world’s largest country. At the gates of Europe, Russia remains an enigma to the world and therein lies its allure. Take a trip to Moscow and step into its heart as you traverse the Red Square. See the Kremlin complex and one of the most iconic symbols of the country – the colourful, patterned dome-shaped majesty of St Basil’s Cathedral. Head to the imperial capital, St Petersburg, to lift the lid on Russia’s art, history and culture scene. This legendary city is a treasure trove of museums,
galleries, opera and ballet and offers an exquisite insight into the fascinating character of the country. Cruise along beautiful canals, gaze at snow-dusted Baroque palaces, enter a traditional bath house to soak away your troubles and hop aboard the Trans Siberian Railway, pressing your face to the glass as you take in the stunning snowy scenes that chug past. In a country this size, Russian winter holidays can be experienced in a thousand and one ways.

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.
