St. Petersburg and Moscow tour - SOLD OUT

July 2 to 13, 2012

11 nights

The heartland of Imperial Russia

 A visit to Russia today is an encounter with an undiscovered land. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, visitors have a fresh opportunity to explore a vast array of exciting and ancient cultures, from the glittering imperial Russia of St. Petersburg to the fabled onion domes of the Kremlin in Moscow. One of the most notable features of present day Russia is a renewed celebration of the wealth of its past and its potential for the future. Russia is a nation of enormous diversity and tremendous vitality. It is as if the cultural traditions of a century ago have re-awakened with a newfound strength – rebuilt ancient cathedrals, colorful markets with the hum of activity and the arts are regaining the creative renown they enjoyed decades ago. A new Russia is now in full bloom.
