Take a city break in Russia and this enigmatic, almost mythical, country will come alive as you uncover not only a wealth of historical and cultural treasures, but also a surprisingly warm yet unique persona that enthrals and intrigues in equal measure. With its colossal size and epic history, there is plenty of Russia to discover, from opulent cities, to quaint, wooden villages to the vast expanse of Siberia.
A city break in Russia will take you to either the sprawling metropolis of Moscow, the classic beauty St Petersburg or the intriguing Kaliningrad. Each city will show a different yet equally fascinating side to Russia; Moscow with its glitzy and glamorous malls, upmarket bars and bustling boulevards surrounding a historical heart containing the iconic Russian architecture of Red Square, St Basil’s Cathedral and the Kremlin; St Petersburg with its Parisian avenues, sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways; and Kaliningrad, cut off from mainland Russia by Poland and Lithuania, with its charming, Germanic neighbourhoods mixed with imposing Soviet edifices.
Like its famous matryoshka dolls, Russia is made up of many layers and is simultaneously many things at once: poetic yet brash, imposing yet intimate, antiquated yet modern. And a city break is the perfect way to sample its dazzling variety of delights while gaining a spellbinding insight and understanding into this remarkable country.
