This essential introduction to Russia’s two greatest cities is the ideal tour for first time visitors. Moscow and St Petersburg vie for supremacy in Russia but they both possess their own unique charms; Moscow with its air of chintzy glamour and iconic landmarks and St Petersburg with its classical grandeur, serene canals and Parisian sophistication.
 
Our popular 8-day tour includes the main attractions and also allows free time for independent exploration to discover the many museums and galleries, or perhaps to just relax over fresh blini and tea at an outdoor café. For a special evening’s entertainment, ask a Regent Russia Specialist about booking tickets to a world-class performance at Moscow’s Bolshoi or St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre. Travelling by train is a quintessential Russian experience. On this tour take the express Sapsan (meaning Peregrine Falcon) Train between Moscow and St Petersburg which travels at speeds of up to 155mph and takes just over four hours.

This is our most popular group tour to Russia, and with multiple departures available every month, you can choose a time of travel to best suit you
