Description

In Russian, instead of saying that you can “kill two birds with one stone”, people say you can “kill two rabbits with one shot”. If you choose the Moscow-St. Petersburg Tour, our bestseller, you will do just this, covering the country’s two capitals in just a single trip. Imagine how much you’ll be able to see in only a week! The Moscow part of the tour starts with a welcome transfer fr om the airport to your hotel or apartment.

On the next day, our guide will show you the best of the Russian capital on a city tour, followed by trips to the Kremlin and the Armory. The famous Tretyakov Gallery will be presented to you the next day, along with one of the deepest subways in the world—the Moscow metro, with its museum-like stations. You will also enjoy a walk along Arbat Street, the centre of Moscow street life wh ere artists and musicians abound.

A 4-hour-long ride on a high-speed train which runs at a staggering speed of 250 km/hour will then gently deliver you to St. Petersburg, the northern capital of Russia.

There you will find yourself at the old Peter and Paul Fortress, Russia’s most significant political prison, and St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the fourth biggest church in the world. Enjoy endless masterpieces in the famous Hermitage and check out the city from the water while on a boat cruise along its many rivers and canals. Admire the beauty of legendary Peterhof or Tsarskoye Selo, home of the Catherine Palace with the storied room glazed in amber. If you ask us, Peterhof comes out on top, both in terms of its beauty and its impressive engineering.
