As the capital of Russia, Moscow is the most important city in Russia with the population of more than 12 million. It is a majestic city with a sense of grandeur and epic scale about it.

The Golden Ring strings together several cities outside of Moscow: Vladimir, Suzdal, Kostroma, Yaroslavl, Rostov Velikiy, Pereslavl-Zalesskiy and Sergiev Posad. One of the oldest regions in Russia, today it is very popular with tourists who want to experience a bygone era. White stone churches, monasteries and fortresses, picturesque countrysides make this region a special place to visit.
St. Petersburg is one of the largest cities in Russia. It is the northernmost city in the world with over one million people population. According to statistics, the city is home to over five million people. Founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great, St. Petersburg was the imperial capital of Russia from 1712 to 1918. Saint-Petersburg is often referred as “cultural capital” of Russia, boasting of its numerous museums, theaters and historical monuments, and “Venice of the North”, having more than 90 rivers and canals with 342 bridges over them (among them 21 drawbridges). The imperial countryside residences with world famous Catherine’s Palace with its Amber room and “Russian Versailles” Peterhof can not be missed also.
Lying on the banks of the Volkhov River, this ancient city was the first capital of Russia all the way back in the 9th Century. The medieval heart of the city is fascinating to explore, and numerous old churches can be found – the 11th Century St Sophia’s Cathedral is just one of many highlights, alongside St George’s Cathedral, the oldest monastery in Russia. Moreover, the city is located only 200 km from Saint-Petersburg, so the visit to Veliky Novgorod can be easily combined with the tour to St. Petersburg.
Murmansk is the largest city in the world located above the Arctic Circle. Despite its young age (the city was founded in 1916), there are a lot of places of interest in Murmansk. And 2 landmarks are obviously worth visiting: the monument to the defenders of the Soviet Arctic “Alyosha” – 35,5 meters statue dominating the landscape, and the first nuclear icebreaker in the world “Lenin”.
But most tourists are attracted by unique northern nature. Starting from Murmansk you can explore Kola Peninsula region and track the Northern Lights. Northern Light season starts in Mid-September and ends in mid-April. However autumn time is dark since it is the time of polar night – sun doesn’t appear from 01.12 till 12.01. The best time to plan your Northern Light tours will be from the end of January till the end of March when days are light and nights are clear and crispy and there are numerous fun winter activities including snowmobiling, dog sledding, winter fishing and many more.
Kazan is quite often called the third capital of Russia or even Istanbul on the Volga. Having the population over 1 million people, Kazan can boast of being a large cultural, scientific, economical, educational and sport center. Kazan and Tatarstan region itself can reveal its thousand year old history while Tatar and Russian cultures which represent Muslim and Orthodox worlds can be a good example of peaceful coexistence and tolerance.
Sochi became famous worldwide after 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia. You might be surprised to hear that this sub-tropical resort located on the Black Sea coast offers wonderful winter experiences due to the close location to the Caucuses mountains. It was also one of the host cities of 2018 FIFA World Cup and hosts the Russian Formula 1 Grand prix. The resort city offers great opportunities for summer and winter activities and is a great place of visit all year round.
