If you’re looking to plan a city break with a twist, think Russia. Although slightly further afield than your average city break, this mammoth country has everything you would expect and so much more. From the contemporary sights and sounds of modern Moscow to the historical attractions of St Petersburg, Russia is definitely a destination worth exploring.
The dynamic city of Moscow is a must see. Start off at Red Square, which is perhaps Russia’s most iconic attraction. Touring the Kremlin churches can be pricey but you’ll find plenty of other cultural exhibits in the area just by walking around.
St Petersburg by contrast has more of a European feel, as most of the city was built by Italian architects. There are plenty of cultural places to explore but if you want a true Russian experience, be sure to book tickets to the world famous ballet.
