  • Why we love Russia

    • Russia’s great cities are liberally endowed with icons – the majestic onion domes of Moscow’s St Basil's Cathedral, St Petersburg’s extraordinary Hermitage Museum – but seeing them up close is even more startling than expected, the scale more immense, the colours bolder, the overall effect more ravishing
    • Few countries do grand like Russia – from chandeliered underground stations; to St Petersburg’s magnificent main drag, the sweeping Nevsky Prospekt; to the country’s endless steppe. Come and be bowled over!

    Safety information

    Most visits to Russia are trouble-free, but petty crime does happen in cities. Be alert to the possibility of mugging, pick pocketing and theft from vehicles or hotel rooms. Be wary of groups of women and children who beg.

     

    In St Petersburg there have been reports of street crime where tourists have been specifically targeted. These crimes are carried out by well-organised gangs. Be aware of pickpockets in the main tourist areas and around the main railway concourses. Bogus police officers have harassed and robbed tourists. If you are stopped always insist on seeing identification.

     
    Avoid openly carrying expensive items, or anything that might easily identify you as a tourist. Avoid walking about late at night alone. Incidents of violence in major cities are usually linked to criminal/business activities and are not usually directed against foreign visitors.
     
    If you are travelling by overnight train in a sleeping compartment, store valuables in the container under the bed or seat. Don’t leave your sleeping compartment unoccupied as some compartments only have a simple lock on the sliding door. On some trains there may be an additional security device, which can be attached to the fitted handle/lock unit. There may also be a steel switch at head-height on the door panel which, when pulled down, prevents the closed door from being slid open.
     
    Don’t agree to look after the luggage of a fellow traveller or allow it to be stored in your compartment.

    All our trips get among landscapes that fascinate and capture the imagination. Some destinations, however, are just that little bit special in their ability to offer up the unexpected, where natural elements, and sometimes the hand of man, have worked overtime to create something that captivates because...
