Travel to Russia

Why Russia?

Russia is fast becoming the next cosmopolitan location to jet off to, particularly for a winter break. Not a country which immediately springs to mind when considering the top European travel destinations, the enchantment of the breath-taking scenery in and outside of the main tourist areas such as St. Petersburg and Moscow is starting to attract more and more tourists from around the world. Russia has also been selected to be the starting backdrop for this year’s G20 summit in St. Petersburg, which begins this week. The picturesque serenity of the Russian countryside offers a unique getaway for couples; wander through leafy woods, cross mountains and relax in the hot springs as you enjoy some quality time alone together. Whether you’re seeking an action packed holiday or a relaxed cultural experience, you will find something of interest on breaks in Russia.

Don’t forget…

If you are yet to experience the delights of Russia, now is a great chance to book a winter getaway to give yourself something to look forward to at the end of the year. There are three must- do’s that are vital when planning a trip to Moscow:

  • A vodka tasting trip: It is the national drink so it’s got to be done! Remember, if you find yourself with a glass of vodka make a toast to shout ‘Za Vas!’; a traditional Russian saying meaning ‘to friends!’. Cheers!
  • St Basil’s Cathedral: This crazy confusion of colours, patterns and shapes is the culmination of a style that is unique to Russian architecture.
  • Cathedral of Christ the Saviour: This gigantic historical cathedral now dominates the river, you can’t miss it and it is bound to render you speechless.
