Best of Russia
Small Group Holiday
Russia's main cities Moscow and St. Petersburg are well-known, what with Moscow's Red Square and Kremlin and St. Petersburg palaces, canals and the world famous Hermitage Museum. This tour shows you all that but adds the towns and villages of the Golden Ring: Sergiev Posad with its Trinity Monastery of Saint Sergius, Vladimir with its Cathedrals of the Assumption and Saint Demetrius, and Suzdal, arguably the most beautiful of all the old cities in the Golden Ring. This ten-day historic tour of Russia is one you will not easily forget.
