Filled with Byzantine domed basilicas and gold-gilded palaces, Russia’s imperial charm can’t be understated.
Whether it’s following in the footsteps of literary greats, entering the mausoleum of the revolutionist Lenin or taking a moment in Moscow’s Red Square – Russia certainly delivers with dramatic impact. Even the mosaic masterpieces in the subway leave you in awe. In St Petersburg, visit grand palace gardens and admire the housed collections of priceless artistic works. These two impressive cities share a rivalry of historical displays yet you will find the warmth of the people and the lure of countryside hospitality waiting with open arms.
