Since our first forays into the former Soviet Union in the early 1980s, Regent has been pioneering new and unique holidays to Russia, always pushing the boundaries of tourism and taking intrigued travellers to some of Russia’s most fascinating – and often lesser-known – destinations.

Moscow’s Red Square with its towering Kremlin and St Basil’s Cathedral is the iconic image of Russia, and is easily combined with St Petersburg, which provides visitors with a wealth of imperial parks and palaces to choose from, including the world-renowned State Hermitage Museum, to give first-time visitors an introduction to the country’s two biggest and boldest characters.

But our Russia holidays are far more than visits to the popular, grandiose cities of Moscow and St Petersburg. Our Russia Holidays are river cruises which take place aboard hand-picked vessels and gently carry you through the countryside and stop at small river-side villages; they are epic railroad journeys, that clatter across deepest Siberia aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway; they are explorations of Russia’s furthest frontiers, from the easterly Kamchatka peninsula to the northern lights-spying town of Murmansk in the north; they are group tours which take you through the country with like-minded travellers to uncover the history of Russian Space Exploration or the fall of the Soviet Union. We know Russia like the back of our hands, and this vast nation has an incredible travel experience for everyone.

Peter Wybrow
Russia is such a vast country, with an almost endless collection of cities worth exploring and a fascinating history that could take months to delve deeper into. For first-time visitors, we suggest beginning your experience of Russia with our popular Moscow & St Petersburg combination tours - easily combined in a trip that compares and contrast these titans, it's an easy way to get to grips with Russia's wealth, beautiful ornate palaces, it's closed Soviet past and increasingly open modern life. Then, travellers after a more unique and authentic Russia experience have plenty of options to head further from the beaten track; journeys along the epic Trans-Siberian Railway, visit historic towns like Yekaterinburg and Kazan, hunt for the northern lights in Murmansk or head to the remote Kamchatka Peninsula.

Peter's Tips
1
For a unique sleep, spend a night at the luxury Hermitage Hotel, owned by St Petersburg's famous treasure trove of art.
2
In Zaryadye Park, you can explore Russia's natural landscapes - tundra, steppe, forest and wetland - without leaving Moscow.
3
Dr Zhivago, in Moscow, is a spectacular place to try Russia's famous traditional Olivier salad.
