Russian Holidays

34 years on from our first foray into Russia, Russian holidays never fail to enthral. Perfect for culture vultures, with its grandiose cities of Moscow and St Petersburg, Russophiles will also appreciate the Soviet history and landmarks. Lovers of the great outdoors will delight in a cruise on the legendary Volga River, gazing at shimmering forests of silver birch and pastoral countryside.

Our Russian holidays offer something for both those new to Russia and those returning to the country. Moscow’s Red Square with its Kremlin and psychedelic St Basil’s Cathedral is the iconic image of Russia, but contrast this with the small towns of the Golden Ring, with rural landscapes dotted with golden-domed Orthodox churches, for a glimpse of the real Russia. St Petersburg provides visitors with a wealth of imperial parks and palaces to explore and the city is home to the world-renowned State Hermitage Museum which celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2014, so this is the perfect year to enjoy a Russian holiday.

What type of Russia holiday are you interested in?

Regent Recommends

Russian HolidaysTake an epic railroad journey and pause at Yekaterinburg, where the Romanovs met their end, before heading into Siberia with its endless steppe and taiga. Stop off at Trans - Siberian towns or head into the wilderness to stay in yurts and encounter shamans and throat singers.

For Russian holidays with a difference, consider visiting the enclave of Kaliningrad, squeezed between Poland and Lithuania, or for those with an interest in Soviet history, visit Stalingrad or one of the other Soviet Hero Cities which played their part in Russia’s WWII defence.

Moscow and St Petersburg are always the top two destinations to visit when on Russian holidays but be adventurous and include one or two other places be it either Volgograd, Ekaterinburg or even Novgorod. Top of our list are the Solovetsky Islands and perhaps venturing north to Murmansk, the largest city within the Arctic Circle.

This important port on the shores of Kola Bay is warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream and is free of ice throughout the year. It was built with British assistance during World War I and the Northern Lights can be seen here during winter months.
