Pre & Post Tours to Saint Petersburg  

Dates: 11-14 June 2014/ 20-23 June 2014

This is a fascinating tour to the 'Venice of the North' with its numerous canals and more than 400 bridges, is the result of a vast urban project begun in 1703 under Peter the Great. Later known as Leningrad (in the former USSR), the city is closely associated with the October Revolution. Its architectural heritage reconciles the very different Baroque and pure neoclassical styles, as can be seen in the Admiralty, the Winter Palace, the Marble Palace and the Hermitage. Peterhof with its magnificent fountains and park and Puskin (Tsarkoye Selo), summer residence of the last Tsar, that includes the Catherine Palace and the famous Amber Room.

Post Tour to the Golden Ring  

Dates: 20-21 June 2014

Experience a unique tour to one of the most exciting regions in Russia - famous 'Golden Ring' of cities to the northeast of Moscow. This ancient heart of Russia with its old whitewashed city walls and venerable onion-domed churches created the world's definition of medieval Rus. In this enchanted region - which has remained relatively untouched by tourist crowds - time stands still. The main currents of history ignored these cities, leaving towns such as Vladimir, Suzdal, Sergiev Posad, Rostov Velikiy, and Yaroslavl as quaint and perfect as when they were first constructed.

Please follow the links below in order to find out more about the post tour to the Golden Ring.
